Noah News


The Big Budget Hollywood Film ISIS Has Started Using As Propaganda – Darren Aronofsky’s Noah was one of 2014’s most polarizing movies. Some embraced it as an art-house, biblical blockbuster that managed to tell one of the most famous stories ever told in a fresh and surprising manner. Others were simply offended that it ever got made.

Captian America: The Winter Soldier
There’s no other way to put it—this weekend was an absolute blowout for Marvel’s latest film in the Avengers cycle. Some of this success could be attributed to the absolute lack of blockbusters on par with it over the last few months, but with box office numbers this good, you have to be doing something right.

Russel Crowe's 'Noah' Banned in Malaysia – The Southeast Asian country is the latest Muslim-majority nation to forbid the biblical epic because it violates Islamic law by depicting a prophet. 8 years 35 weeks ago via jetli

Bad puns notwithstanding, the box office was very good to one of our new releases, which earned a goodly amount above its predicted gross range. The other films, holdouts and new releases alike, did okay as well, but Noah most definitely won the day.

New in Theaters: 'Noah,' 'Sabotage'

4:16 PM 3/28/2014 by Logan Falk
This weekend, we’re looking at quite the schizoid set of new releases—one film, the more popular of the two with the critics, is an epic action film inspired by one of the oldest tales in human history, and the other is a cheesy action film from one of the classic action heroes who refuses to quit.
