One Factor Will Decide How Many Watch Exodus: Gods and Kings

According to recent polling data, the factor the will most influence whether or not people go to see Exodus: Gods and Kings is Biblical accuracy. The the Biblical epic you set to hit theaters December 12. Until then, we won’t know just how accurate the poll is.

The numbers are somewhat surprising. 67% of adults (Not just Christians) are unlikely to see Exodus if it fails to accurately portray the Biblical story. By contrast, 73% of adults are likely to see the film if it is accurate.

By just watching the trailers for Exodus: Gods and Kings, it seems as though this film will stay closer to the story of Exodus than “Noah” did Genesis. Earlier this year when Noah was released, there were a lot of Christians who were not pleased with the movie’s interpretation of the book of Genesis.

One thing is for sure; this film looks visually stunning. The CGI looks amazing.  Here’s a quick quote from the director, Ridley Scott:

“Well, in terms of the metaphorical aspects, yes [this is the biggest project I’ve done]. Even budgetarily it’s probably the biggest, yeah. But I didn’t approach it as my biggest. I never do that. I always approach it from the point of view of the characters, of the story. I never realised Gladiator was going to be quite as large in terms of its scope and yet it was a very small, personal story. A revenge. A simple revenge into which we had jigsawed some characters.”
