Biblical Epics on Film

Epic films based on the stories of the Bible have been popular since the beginning of the movies. The silent era's Ben-Hur (1925) is still regarded as a great. ABC-TV has aired The Ten Commandments (1956) every year in the spring since 1973. Most recently, the story of Noah, directed by Hollywood auteur Darren Aronofsky, topped the box office. Here's a look at some of the greatest Biblical epics in cinema history.
