Trivia

Paramount Pictures was very worried about how this movie and its religious theme would be treated properly, so they screentested three different rough cuts of the film, all 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 debate 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 the film 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 12th that Darren Aronofsky's version, not any of the studio's alternate versions, was to 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 green-lit", Aronofsky said. It was not test screened until post-production was 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 honestly don't understand the hate on this one.
6 August 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

When putting on Noah I had heard a lot of negativity about this movie. I do not know if it is Christians not supporting this adaptation, or if it is atheists thinking it is way to much Christian propaganda. I am a atheist, and I like good stories on the screen. What I liked about this movie was that feeling of adventure the likes of LOTR and Star Wars, a movie adaptation of a biblical story that is up there with other science fiction and adventure films. It didn't make the story about Noah more plausible, but it was a great story, set in timeless environments. I have read the genesis story even though I'm not a Christian, and in my opinion this adaptation is quite accurate and true to the biblical story, with some tweaking here and there. A little gnostic view points here and there, but all in all something fresh made from a old and boring book, made a little bit more interesting. Have an open mind, and don't watch it with an preconceived notion. Watch it like you would with any other story made for the screen.
