Hollywood may not be a religious by nature, but the town's power players listen to the voice of international ticket sales.

Those voices spoke loud and clear over the weekend with Paramount's Noah, the Biblical tale which split audiences but racked up impressive sales figures here and abroad.


    In fact, in Russia, Noah debuted at $17.2 million, the fourth biggest opening and biggest non-sequel opening ever in that country.

    The US domestic take for opening weekend will be $44 million, according to Paramount. Internationally, it earned $33.6 to bring the overseas cumulative box office to $51.1 million. The film opened in some international markets last week.

    That’s a total global gross of $95.1 million so far.

Rob Moore, Vice Chairman of Paramount Pictures, says Noah's international clout could make Hollywood more eager to pursue Bible-based stories in the future.

Noah is the most unbiblical biblical movie ever.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton

The Noah story by Edgar Rice Burroughs it sounds like.

I suspect, given the horrendous reviews, it will be in for a week-2 tanking.
