I’m shocked! I can’t believe that Noah, the new Russell Crowe movie, is anything other than a literal retelling of the Bibical narrative! Who would have thought hollywood would do that!
Seriously, though, who would have thought Hollywood would turn a thousand word story into an epic adventure drama that strictly adhered to the source material? For that matter, when has Hollywood strictly adhered to any source material?
Anyway, Paramount has added a disclaimer to trailers and other marketing materials:
“The film is inspired by the story of Noah. While artistic license has been taken, we believe that this film is true to the essence, values, and integrity of a story that is a cornerstone of faith for millions of people worldwide. The biblical story of Noah can be found in the book of Genesis.”
