Anybody seen the trailer to this yet? So far it actually looks good. I have been cautiously optomistic about it after hearing about movies like Noah and Exodus: Gods and Kings. After the trailers I am feeling better about it. I came across something on wiki that makes me feel even better...
Unlike in the original film, Christ will have a prominent role in this version. Paramount Pictures' vice chairman, Rob Moore, stated that Christ in this version "is going to be consistent with people's expectations," and that the "expectations of the faithful will be honored by this one." This was because Paramount wants to avoid the sort of backlash received by Darren Aronofsky's Noah because some Christians were dismayed by the film's inventive and inaccurate interpretation of the Bible. Santoro received personal blessings from Pope Francis for his role as Christ.

That may be well worth a watch.

That might be a good one to go see!
I might have decided, or maybe not, that I should or shouldn't, depending on the issue or non-issue, to possibly share or not share, any thoughts, opinions, or facts (that might not be deemed factual by some), due to possible fear of any misinterpretation or retribution.

That trailer looks better than the first one I saw a while back. I still have a hard time thinking it can be as good as the original. Especially with the CGI.
