New Images Of Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins & More From Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’

New Images Of Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins & More From Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’

A flood is coming, but not to worry, because Darren Aronofsky is building the boat, cinematically speaking. Next spring, the director brings his snake-filled, crazy demon angel version of “Noah” to the big screen, and now a few more images have arrived to tide us over.  

While you likely already know the Sunday School version of the story, where God commands Noah to build an ark to survive the Earth-obliterating disaster He’s gearing up, Aronofsky is jacking things up a bit. His version will be a much more supernatural and fantastical take, featuring (among many other things) eleven foot tall angels and Noah himself being compared to Mad Max. So yeah, the Kirk Camerons of the world may not recognize the Noah they grew up with right away. And these new photos of the movie provide new and first looks at titular lead Russell Crowe along with Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone and Anthony Hopkins.

Douglas Booth, Kevin Durand, Martin Csokas, Dakota Goyo, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson and Arnar Dan round out the cast, so bring a set of two animals to your local theater on March 28, 2014. [Fotogrames]

I'm a born-again Christian, and I love a good story. I'm intrigued by this… I dig a well-told tale. My only potential issue is even if you got strictly by the Bible, Noah is such a fantastical and compelling tale that there's no need to make stuff up that runs counter to the original story.

One thing that often gets overlooked in folks' understanding of Noah–is that Noah didn't buld the ark in a few weeks or a few months. It actually took him decades–he was relatively young when he started and fairly old when he finished–his sons were young when he started yet mature and married by time the arc was completed.

For me the notion of a single character dedicating a literal lifetime to a single endeavor in the face of ridicule and doubt is a pretty rich story. (All of Noah's neighbors, by all biblical accounts, thought Noah was a fool in every sense of the word and treated him as such until the rains came.)

This has the potential given the caliber of acting talent and production talent involved to be a pretty good movie. It may suck. It may end up mediocre. But I'm intrigued… I'll go into this with an open mind as I try to do with any movie…


Doesn't everyone get it? Russell Crowe, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly et al were cast because they have "star power" and are more likely to bring people to the theater to watch this. Perhaps casting little knowns who look more Middle Eastern might have made it more authentic, but less likely to have gotten financing. Like others have noted, how does anyone know what Noah looked like?

The Fountain Is Terrible

Oh fuck Arronosky is going back to his Fountain visions. Someone please tell him that the Fountain was terrible and the Epic biblical thing probably isn't his forte. Thanks.

Also I echo the sentiments below. This is a pretty white cast for biblical time….scratch that not pretty white…really really white. Aye aye aye this is a train wreck waiting to happen.


no thanks


So many white people considering where it's set. Are there any people of colour in this movie at all?

I just love it that all of the lead characters look like they just stepped out of some western European, Arthurian legend. Even if you believe in the Biblical Tales, the folks were from what we call the Middle East today. But in reality they were an African People. Most African people or Middle Easterners for that matter don't look anything like Russell Crowe or Anthony Hopkins. The modern day "Jews" who returned to Israel from Europe in the 20th Century are not the same folks of the Bible. It's Elizabeth Taylor and Cleopatra all over again. The more things change the more they stay the same. Densel might have been a better choice than Crowe.




Looks like a "Waterworld" sequel… good luck getting into the black after the investment…
