Exodus: Gods and Kings

Exodus: Gods and Kings: Ridley Scott's latest epic, Exodus: Gods and Kings, has done nicely at the box office overseas, taking in nearly $100 million so far, but it won't earn any money from three Middle Eastern countries (Egypt, Morocco and United Arab Emirates) where it has recently been banned. Egypt objected to the movie's "historical inaccuracies," including the depiction of the parting of the Red Sea as a "'tidal phenomenom' rather than a divine miracle."  [The Guardian]
