Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah. The film is based on the biblical story of Noah, who built a giant ark and saved two of every animal and his family, while the rest of the world was purged by the Great Flood. The difference is that Noah is seen more as a builder in the Bible and Aronofsky is depicting the Biblical figure as a warrior. While this is the first time that the general public has seen footage, the trailer features footage that was presented at various religious conferences throughout the country.
There has been some conflict with Aronofsky and Paramount about the final edit of the film though. Test screenings have not been favorable, but those who have seen the film at religious conferences would probably tell you differently. Paramount has invested a fair amount of cash into Noah, which could turn out to be an epic hit or an epic failure depending on who gets the final cut. Hit the jump to see the trailer.
We’ve already seen the first official image of Russell Crowe in the upcoming biblical epic from Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler, and Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, titled simply Noah, and now comes a handful of new images to check out.
The new images include another look at Crowe in a poster-esque shot, and our first official look at the other stars of the movie, including Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, and Logan Lerman.
You can check out all of the new images from the movie below!
We’ve already seen the first image of Russell Crowe as Noah in Darren Aronofsky‘s new movie version of the biblical tale, titled Noah. Now comes some new set photos of the actor in costume.
Unlike that first image of Crowe, Noah doesn’t have hair on his head in these set photos and he is also looking like quite the bad ass. Noah is said to have been 600 years old when the whole flood thing went down, but I surely wouldn’t mess with him.
Also recently released is the first image of the completed ark that Noah built, which doesn’t look at all like you’d expect it to. You can see all of the images below.
The Adjustment Bureau director George Nolfi is set to make XOXO, a tense social media thriller that is said to be in the vein of Fatal Attraction.
But that is just the tip of it all. Nolfi will be using a script written by Black Swan screenwriter Mark Heyman, and will receive some assistance from Darren Aronofsky, Michael London,, and Kelly Mullen. That’s quite the behind the scenes kind of team any filmmaker would love to have.
The story of Noah is among one of the greatest Biblical stories ever told, and Darren Aronofsky will finally be able to bring his vision of a man who saved his family and many animals from an epic flood to the big screen after years of gestating. Of course his vision will have a slight twist, but it will also keep the spirit of the story. So after a couple of casting rumors and set photo reveals from the director himself, we are getting our first look at Russell Crowe as the titular hero. Check it out below.
Crowe looks rugged and his clothing is tattered, but other than that, there isn’t too much to describe about the image. But we’ve seen giant set photos of the ark in the past, which suggest that this is going to be one of Aronofsky’s biggest films. The director occasionally posts photos on his twitter account to update his fans on the progress of the film.
