Have you heard about the controversy swirling around the upcoming blockbuster movie, Noah, soon to be released in theaters on March 28? The $125 million Noah epic starring Russell Crowe and Anthony Hopkins has hit rough seas with many key faith-based test audiences.Take the survey
By answering one simple question here, you can let Hollywood know what’s important to you!
Hollywood execs increasingly understand the economic importance of the $1.75 trillion Faith Driven Consumer market, and are actively producing movies based on biblical themes.
Yet word out this week confirms previous reports that have many Faith Driven Consumers concerned. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Noah has been criticized for depicting Noah as a “crazy, irrational, religious nut…fixated on modern-day problems like overpopulation and environmental degradation.”
Importantly, the movie’s director appears to have replaced the Bible’s central point of God’s judgment on man’s inherent sin with a story focused on a contemporary environmental theme.
In an effort to appeal to Faith Driven Consumers, the studio tested several versions of the movie. This seemingly upset the director as an effort to “appease a small but vocal segment…Those people can be noisy.”
Given this, we’re asking you – as a Faith Driven Consumer – to settle their debate.
Speak up and be heard—tell Hollywood’s executives what you think about this movie. Tell them what entertainment options you would like them to produce for you.
We will share your input, and engage Hollywood executives in a conversation about the type of entertainment content that best resonates with Faith Driven Consumers like you and me.
Thank you for telling us what you think. We look forward to your input!

Victory! Today, for the first time ever, the Supreme Court of the United States confirmed that profit-seeking corporations can hold a religious view under federal law. The landmark 5-4 ruling favors Christian-owned companies Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood.
In the ongoing battle for religious freedom in America, this is a huge victory for Christians who seek to steward their lives and businesses in accordance with their deeply held convictions and biblical worldview.
While the context for this ruling was set within the onerous Obamacare mandate requiring companies to offer abortion-inducing drugs in their employee health plans, the implications for this ruling have much broader religious liberty implications for you and me and the companies that we support as Faith Driven Consumers.
Let’s take a moment now to thank the brave and bold leadership of both Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood for standing on their faith and defending our constitutionally guaranteed religious liberty—pushing this case all the way to the Supreme Court.
Sign below to add your personal thank you to the letter we will deliver to Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood on behalf of Faith Driven Consumers nationwide.
Thank you for recognizing Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood who stood up for our First Amendment freedom of religious liberty. When we come together as Faith Driven Consumers and make our voices heard, we positively change a culture that’s becoming increasingly hostile to our right to hold and express biblical faith and values.
