After all the hype and typical run of the mill controversy(when making a religious film) with religious groups and budget overruns , the trailer to “Noah” is finally here.
Russell Crowe, the swiss army knife of actors (Jor –El, Jack the Knife)is now playing the biblical Noah.
The very talented Darren Aronofsky(‘Black Swan”, ‘The Wrestler’) directed and co- wrote the screenplay for ‘Noah,’ which features the star-studded ensemble of Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly
Said to be closely adapted from the well-known Bible story. The synopsis on the film says: In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood. Noah must fill the Ark with two of every species before God cleanses the planet of sin (i.e. destroys everything). Based on the trailer it seems that Crowe will depict Noah as more of a warrior living in a world marked by violence and savagery.
The screenplay was written by Aronofsky and Ari Handel and revised by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter John Logan (GLADIATOR, HUGO).
While we await the film’s March 28, 2014 release, check out the trailer here!
