The current controversy surrounding 'Noah' is that the film omits the term 'God' from the dialogue.

Instead, director Darren Aronofsky uses the term 'Creator'.

There are conflicting reports that 'God' is said at least once.

FOX 5’s Kevin McCarthy saw the film Saturday night and plans to see it again to confirm the report.

He spoke with Aronofsky and asked him about the decision to not use the word 'God' in the movie.

"I think pre-flood times are a very, very different setting. It's a magical, fantastical world, it's a mythical word,” Aronofsky said.

Aronofsky went on to say, “We needed to create a world that was very, very different than our own world."

"Putting the word 'God' in, which is - people have so many ideas about what that is. We wanted to show that the mind set of these people at that time was different, and for us, they were ten generations descended from creation,” he continued.

"So creation is a recent memory and that is the most miraculous thing that happened, you know, ever, but for these people being so close, we felt a direct relation to the 'Creator' and what he had done would sort of emphasizes that, and sort of separate it, make it a different world."
