Exodus... banned in Egypt

Exodus... banned in Egypt
Actor Christian Bale’s Exodus: Gods and Kings has been banned in Egypt a week before its planned New Year’s Eve release. A report from an Egyptian site said censors issued the ban due to the movie’s “historical inaccuracies”. Egyptian cultural minister Gaber Asfour said the depiction of Jewish slaves as being the builders of the Great Sphinx and Pyramids is inaccurate because the monuments are accepted to have been built around 2540 B.C. - 500 years before Abraham, the father of Judaism, reports variety.com. Ridley Scott’s movie, based on the bible’s book of exodus, stars Bale as Moses and Joel Edgerton as the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses.
