Paramount Pictures were very worried about how Noah (2014) and its religious theme would be treated properly, so they screen tested three different rough cuts of the film, both without the approval and knowledge of Darren Aronofsky and all of the versions met with resounding criticism from Christian audiences. It has, since then, led to countless controversy and debacle on its correspondence to the biblical text found in the Book of Genesis. Aronofsky said that he was very unhappy with Paramount testing alternate versions of Noah that were not 'true to his vision': "I was upset - of course. No one has ever done that to me. I imagine if I made comedies and horror films, it would be helpful. In dramas, it's very, very hard to do. I've never been open to it. I don't believe that." After much discussion and compromise, the studio announced on February 12 that Darren Aronofsky's version, not any of the studio's alternate versions, will be the final cut of Noah. "They tried what they wanted to try, and eventually they came back. My version of the film hasn't been tested... It's what we wrote and what was greenlighted," Aronofsky said. It will not be test screened until post production is finished, as per Aronofsky's wishes. See more »
When Noah is praying on the roof of the ark, in the short shots, the water is deep and directly in front of him. In the long shots (especially from above) he is in the center of the roof, and the water is nowhere near him. See more »

I don't understand all the hate that "Noah" (the movie) is getting. Personally, I think it is a GREAT movie. But maybe it's because I'm an artist, so I understand what art is and isn't supposed to be. Seems as if a lot of people -especially Christians thought they were going to see a documentary or a theological disputation. I actually think it sticks very well to the Biblical account. Maybe people don't know their Bible as well as they think they do. --- If you don't like the story, how's that the movie's fault? Fallen angels, giants, genocide, etc. is all in the Bible. --- Yes, I'm talking about the actual Bible, not the version you were taught in Sunday school, when you were five years old.
Anyway, if you are at all philosophically inclined and don't mind movies that make you think about serious and even existential questions, ignore the haters; Go see "Noah"!
I haven't been so emotionally moved and intellectually stimulated from a movie for quite a while. It's not for the weak of heart. After all, it's a story about genocide. But it is beautifully made. And, in my opinion, stays true to the Biblical account.
