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!
British police action flick The Sweeney, lead by Ray Winstone and Damian Lewis, is hitting theaters AND On-Demand on March 1st. And to coincide with its auspicious dual release, we’ve got ourselves an appropriately Sweeney-themed prize pack to give away to five lucky Geeks of Doom readers.
Prizing includes pint glasses, snacks, handcuffs, and a rather handy Cockney dictionary to accompany you and your best mates while you watch The Sweeney On-Demand from the comforts of your own flat.
When the London Metropolitan Police cannot cross the law, they have the Sweeney Flying Squad to do their dirty work. But when the law catches up to the Sweeney and they are faced with an old enemy, the squad is forced to think like criminals in order to stop the greatest one of them all.
The film stars Ray Winstone, who takes the role of Jack Regan, the head of the Sweeney Flying Squad. Ben Drew will play his loyal partner George Carter, and Golden Globe-winner Damian Lewis will play their no-nonsense boss.
Check out the first U.S. trailer for The Sweeney here below.

With all the praise surrounding the immersive 3D experience of Hugo, I truthfully didn’t think I would enjoy watching the movie on the small screen in a streaming viewing experience. In fact, with the “kid’s movie” stigma attached to it, I’m fairly sure I wanted to dislike it.
But it is impossible to dislike a Martin Scorsese film.
Despite the deficiency of 3D immersion, Scorsese had my attention riveted from the very beginning of the movie. With several early sequences that embodies his trademark single-shot “how the hell did he film this” technique(s), connected with high standard acting from a stellar cast, Hugo stands well enough on its own without that 3D garbage, thank-you-very-much!
Actually, the coupling of Scorsese’s filming and direction techniques, with the excellent cast make this a superb movie experience. And when it comes to the cast, Scorsese most definitely has an eyeball for talent: Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, Richard Griffiths, Jude Law, and more all favor the screen in Hugo, but it is Asa Butterfield‘s performance as the title character that tremendously grabs you.
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.
