Filmen baserad på berättelsen från Bibeln, Noa, förbjuds nu i flertalet länder.
Enligt Al-Azharistitutet kränker filmen den islamska sharialagen.

Paramount’s upcoming Noah, which recently came under fire from religious groups, will not be released in three Middle East countries, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. Egypt, Jordan and Kuwait will likely follow suit.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the issue is over the film showing a prophet, which goes against Islamic law.
The Sunni Muslim institute Al-Azhar release a statement on Thursday saying that Darren Aronofsky’s latest film shouldn’t be screened in Egypt, reports Haaretz. “Al-Azhar renews its rejection to the screening of any production that characterizes Allah’s prophets and messengers and the companions of the Prophet.”
The institute added that Noah goes “contrary to faith and to the fundamentals of the Islamic sharia [law].”
