Exodus - Gods and Kings Tries Release in Egypt

Moses Film Would Like to Enter Cinemas There

When Noah hit many cinemas around the world, a lot of Muslim countries weren't on that list. The Islamic law prohibits the depiction of prophets (and Noah is one of them). This December, Ridley Scott's new movie Exodus - Gods and Kings gets its theatrical release and faces the same problem. At least in Egypt some hope remains that the Moses character can be shown there.

Egypt's secretary of culture, Gaber Asfour, personally rallies for the film and hopes that the country's religious leaders can be convinced to allow the film a release. At least the Christian part of the citizens should be given the chance to see Exodus and religious leaders should no longer be the decision makers for film releases but representatives of the whole population of the country. We'll see if Asfour's efforts lead to something.

Exodus - Gods and Kings starts in US cinemas on December 12th, 2014, the UK has to wait until December 26th, 2014.
