Some in the religious community take this movie as a declaration from Satan that he's coming to f-up Christians the way God did to the Nephilim during that the days of Noah. At the bottom of the movie poster, it says something like "the end is near." And, they were filming in the New York area, and filming had to be delayed because of Hurricane Sandy. Get it? The making of the movie Noah was delayed because of a flood. The third thign was that at some point in time during filming Russell Crowe either fell out of a raft and nearly drowned or he got lost at sea or soemthing. I'm fuzzy on the details about that. But it's interesting (at least I thought so).
