So what causes me to be astounded and surprised? Mainly the fact that someone has the foresight and cojones to actually make an epic film about Noah.
So who is in it?
Anthony Hopkins, Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Ray Winstone, and some other people, but those are the 4 that I'll be going to the cinema to see.
And here's why:
Comparing it to what is said in the Bible, he said "If you were expecting a Biblically faithful retelling of the story of the greatest mariner in history and a tale of redemption and obedience to God you’ll be sorely disappointed." He predicted that the film "will be rejected by millions of devoted Bible readers worldwide because once again it subverts their own sacred narrative with a political agenda of pagan earth religion that is offensive to their Faith."
Personally, I think it looks like a very interesting movie and might be a good way to get people to read the book that the story is based on...
