‘Noah Primeval’ author Brian Godawa discusses ‘Noah’ film, what to expect and why Christians should go
Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky teams up with Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson and Anthony Hopkins in a blockbuster adaptation of the story of Noah.
Brian Godawa is no stranger to Noah, authoring his own vision in Noah Primeval: Chronicles of the Nephilim, and spoke with The Global Dispatch/Dispatch Radio about the upcoming movies, why Christians should attend the film and what are some of the areas of concern for Christian.
Godawa recounts Aronofsky’s comments and the public relations for Noah which have concerned some Christians (As stated during the discussion, Aronofsky stated it wouldn’t be a ‘religious film’ — read here)
“It’s not to say an atheist can’t tell the story well.” noting successes, but there may be concern as the creators appear to bemaking “a dark, unsympathetic hero.”
Brian recounts his early script review of Noah (check out part one HERE), how the themes of environmentalism are prent and details Aronofsky’s goal of making an “environmental apocalypse” film.
Like The Global Dispatch, Godawa is NOT calling for a boycott, in fact, he is calling for Christians to educate themselves with the viewing, learning to point to scripture as they discuss the film and enjoy the highly anticipated CGI enhanced vision of the flood.
Brian uses his experience exploring the story in his creation of Noah Primeval, noting the tagline “This is ain’t your Sunday School Noah’s ark.”
While the interview is long, several topics and issues surrounding Hollywood and faith movies are discussed.
