Egypt Bans “Exodus: Gods and Kings” From Movie Theaters

Exodus gods and kings

As BBC reported, Egypt finds the box office semi-hit, “Exodus: Gods and Kings” historically inaccurate and, therefore, has banned the film from its theaters. So far, the movie has made a total of $52,271,909 at the domestic box office.

According to the report, the biblical adaptation depicts Jews as having built the pyramids. The Middle Eastern country’s censorship board disagrees with the portrayal in the movie.

In addition, Moses parting the Red Sea was, in their eyes, due to an earthquake. 

The Wrap said that the AFP  reported that theaters in Morocco received “verbal” instructions from state-run Moroccan Cinema Centre (CCM) to stop the release as previously planned.
