Biblical epic Noah has been banned in Indonesia following a boycott in the Middle East.
Darren Aronofsky's religious blockbuster, based on the story of the Great Flood, features Russell Crowe as ark-builder Noah, but has courted controversy ahead of its release in the U.S. on Friday (28Mar14) with censors in predominantly Muslim countries opting to reject it.
The boycott is due to the film's depiction of a prophet, which is forbidden in Islamic cultures, and now Indonesia has followed Qatar, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates in banning the movie.
Zainut Tauhid Saadi, a member of the Indonesian Censorship Board, says, "We rejected the screening of the film in Indonesia.
"The visual depiction of a prophet is forbidden in Islam. The film will hurt both Christian and Muslim communities."
