Poll: Christians Want Bible Movies to be More Accurate

Though Darren Aronofsky’s Noah was a certified hit (it brought in more than $300 million globally in its first month), it drummed up as much controversy as it did ticket sales.

In light of the blowback, Bible Gateway conducted a poll to gauge Christians’ attitude for accuracy in blockbuster adaptations. Just 28 percent said they “feel that Bible stories are a good fit for the big screen and can withstand artistic license,” while a whopping 60 percent answered that “Hollywood adaptations of Bible stories are acceptable only if they adhere strictly to the details of the original story.”

Will this mean no rock monsters in future biblical epics?
