Last week the film "Son of God," from producer Mark Burnett of Survivor fame hit theaters. 

This December comes director Ridley Scott's interpretation of Exodus, starring Christian Bale and Aaron Paul, of "Breaking Bad" fame. In a few weeks Russell Crowe will build an ark to save the faithful, in Darren Aronofsky's epic, "Noah."
