According to Yahoo’s The Wrap, Paramount has listened to the folks at the National Religious Broadcaster’s convention, and added a disclaimer to the beginning of Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. Here’s what we’ll see when the lights go down:
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.
Interesting, almost word for word the same as the disclaimer before Prince of Egypt, which I posted a couple of days ago.
I think this was a good move on Paramount’s part. It’s a bit sad that they have to clarify for people that they’re watching a MOVIE and not a documentary, but I’m glad that they’ll point people to the Bible.
Nicely played, Mr. Moore!
