The Darren Aronofsky movie Noah has some folks upset, apparently? So now all Noah ads will feature a disclaimer? I don't understand anything anymore.

The disclaimer will read, "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." In other words, please refer to the Bible for The Truth.

Here's the Los Angeles Times:

The disclaimer was prompted by conversations between the studio and the National Religious Broadcasters, a conservative Christian organization whose mission includes advancing "biblical truth." Some NRB leaders have seen the film, which stars Russell Crowe as Noah.

"Because of the quality of the production and acting, viewers will enjoy watching main themes from the Noah story depicted in a powerful way on the big screen," Jerry A. Johnson, the NRB's president, said in a statement. "However, my intent in reaching out to Paramount with this request was to make sure everyone who sees this impactful film knows this is an imaginative interpretation of Scripture, and not literal."


Just in case you thought a special effects action movie starring Russell Crowe was literal.
