[Movies] Noah Banned in Malaysia For Religious Reasons
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.07.2014



Darren Aronofsky's Noah is making a fair amount of its money overseas, but one place it won't get any revenue is Malaysia. The Guardian reports that the film has been banned by the country, adding it to a list that includes Indonesia, Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.

Malaysia's chief censor Abdul Hamid said of the film, "The movie is banned because for us Muslims, we believe in Prophet Noah (Nabi Nuh) and, according to Islamic teachings, it is prohibited to act out any characters of a prophet... Any depiction of any prophet is prohibited in Islam."

The movie has made $72.4 million domestically and $178.6 million worldwide.
