Mohammed Joins Polanski In Hollywood’s Pantheon Of Pedophile Appreciation

Iran’s ‘Muhammad’ Sparks Ire in Sunni Muslim World But Scores at Box Office

Iranian director Majid Majidi’s “Muhammad: The Messenger of God,” the lavish epic lensed by multiple Oscar-winner Vittorio Storaro about the birth and rise of Islam, that recently prompted a fatwa from a Muslim group in India – angered about its alleged depiction of God – is reportedly doing strong box office on wide release in roughly half of Iran’s cinemas.

The partly government-financed “Muhammad,” which cost some $40 million and is considered the Islamic Republic’s most expensive film, is playing on more than 140 of Iran’s 320 screens and in many cultural centres in remote cities across the country after opening the Montreal Film Festival on August 27.

Box office receipts for “Muhammad” have hit 30 billion Iranian Rials, roughly $1 million, in two weeks, according to the government-controlled Tehran Times. If that figure is accurate, it’s a nice haul.


One thing Hollywood appreciates – money.

    I thought it is not allowed to depict the “prophet” …so exactly how does one make a film about someone you can’t show?
    They could have called the Muhammed film “Close Encounters of the Third Grade”.

    • It’s different when the Shia do it for some reason.

    Does the movie show him banging his 9 year old wife?

  • Good illustration, BCF – looks just like Mo.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Looks akin, in marketing if not in content, to “The Passion of the Christ.” Criticism of the latter movie left Mel Gibson crying all the way to the bank.
