A movie about a man hearing from God to save the world and the word “God” wasn’t used once in the movie. So now you know why the director of the film, Darren Aronofsky, said that “Noah” Movie was the least Biblical film ever made.
The Noah Movie: Least biblical Bible film ever made
The Noah Movie “is the least biblical biblical film ever made,” Aronofsky told The New Yorker, according to The Guardian. He also commented on the poor test scores the film received from faith audiences as Paramount Pictures screened multiple versions of the film.
“I don’t give a f*** about the test scores! My films are outside the scores,” he was quoted as saying. “Ten men in a room trying to come up with their favorite ice cream are going to agree on vanilla. I’m the rocky road guy.”
In one version, Paramount allegedly added religious images and a Christian rock song, in a reportedly fruitless attempt to appeal to a Christian audience.
“In December, Paramount tested its fifth, and ‘least Aronofskian,’ version of the Noah Movie: an 86-minute beatitude that began with a montage of religious imagery and ended with a Christian rock song,” according to a profile in The New Yorker released this week. That version and others failed to resonate with the audiences. Aronofsky’s version will make the final cut.
