New Images from Darren Aronofsky’s NOAH Starring Russell Crowe, Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, and More

     June 27, 2013


New promo images have been released for Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah.  The adaptation will expand on the biblical tale, and take a closer look at the details of the story.  For example, while the ark is usually portrayed as a ship, in Aronofsky’s film, it’s literally an ark designed simply to withstand the flood rather than something that’s designed for travel.  As you’ll see from these images, the dress is also far rougher than the cheesy biblical version of robes and sandals.  And when it comes to the character, lead actor Russell Crowe says that this Noah isn’t a benevolent figure, but “a guy who can get the job done.”  It’s going to be a new take on an old story, and I can’t wait to see what Aronofsky has in store.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Durand, Martin Csokas, and Mark MargolisNoah opens March 28, 2014.

And here’s a brief video of Crowe talking to Entertainment Tonight about the film:

Around The Web
  • Collin Kobelja

    Meh, Looks more like another Robin Hood than a biblical tale. Also, these people look way to clean.

    • Ramone

      Well, it is raining.

  • Tom

    After Man of Steel, more Christian crap to sell in the church. Pass.

    • Get Yo Mind Right

      Do you know anything about this Director? He doesn’t pull punches and he certainly doesn’t make church movies. Pretty sure Noah is holding a shiv in the preview picture….. not very “churchy” of him.

      • Agent777

        Everyone knows the bible is full of murder and genocide, extreme sexism, racism against Africans, homophobia, incest…. Besides the original Noah story has one of his one castrate him, so maybe that’s what the shive is for (I doubt it)

        I know a lot about the director and I thought he made films that seem cool from the previews and then end up being mediocre cop outs that three years late no one even watches.

      • Merlin235

        At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having read. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

      • Agent777

        Yeah I know, I feel really dumb after reading the bible, and all those book on Hebrew myths. Everyone knows not reading and hanging out online makes you smart. Guess I need to get rid of my massive library of history books, mythology books and anthropology books because I guess dey is makes me tupiddddddd!!!!

        But on a serious not, is it fun living on Ignorance Mountain?

        And you do know Merlin is a pagan wizard?

      • Merlin235

        I’ve read your response about 10 times, and I can’t figure out what you’re going for. Do you honestly feel dumb after ready the “book on Hebrew myths”? And, if not, why do you later use your “massive library of … mythology books” to prove how smart you are? Or was the whole response purposefully incoherent?

        Merlin is legend. As in non-real. And awesome.

      • akretsos

        “PI”, “The Wrestler” , “Requiem For A Dream” : Which is in my top 10 films of all time. Even “The Fountain” is in need of several viewings. “Black Swan” can be watched once a year after you watch the drivel that hollywood puts out by years end and get depressed. Along with Paul Thomas Anderson, Mr. Aronofsky is one of THE brilliant directors of my generation. I am 38 years old as of 6 days ago.

      • Mot

        Aranofsky is one of, if not THE most overrated director in recent memory.

      • Mixed Race rich kid NYC

        You do have to admit that requiem for a dream is a great movie but other than that he has been pretty average

      • Harry Palm

        Eh. It’s just another movie about junkies and they’re a dime-a-dozen. Aranofsky has style, for sure, but his movies are lacking in substance.

      • akretsos

        Opinions is one of the reasons I love discussing film BUT sometimes YOU are just plain wrong. To compare “Requiem For A Dream” to other dime – a – dozen movies about junkies is just plain ludicrous. Either you don’t know about drugs ( I am a licensed substance abuse counselor for 15+ years ) or you just know nothing about film. BUT everyone is entitled to their opinions, that’s why I love movies. I guess “Trainspotting” and Danny Boyle are horrible too, right!?

      • Get Yo Mind Right

        Well that’s just like, you’re opinion man.

        The Wrestler was awesome.

      • akretsos

        YES, it was. Especially that he used real independent wrestlers in the film and shot it in NJ, where I attend a lot of indy shows. Not many films capture the realism that is FAKE, SCRIPTED pro wrestling. I have been a fan since 1985 and always will be. Great comment….

    • Dannyboy3030

      Noah is a Old Testament Jew dummy

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Actually wasn’t a Jew at all since there was no Israel yet.

      • jasonca

        uhm no. Moses is famous for leading the persecuted jews or ‘Children of Israel’ the semitic people in Egypt out of Egypt.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Which happens in Exodus, the second book of the Bible. The story of the Noah happens in Genesis (starting with 6:9 and running through Genesis 10). Israel (Jacob, son of Isaac and grandson of Abraham) was several generations later than Noah and doesn’t show up until Genesis 25. Jacob had 12 sons, and moved with them into Egypt during a widespread famine. The longer they resided there, the more Israel and his sons multiplied (remember, it was customary to have multiple wives and dozens of children, so this is not far fetched) to the point they were seen as a threat to Egypt. The Egyptians did what most peoples do when they are afraid of other races; they oppressed and enslaved them. Thus the Exodus, which doesn’t even start in earnest until Exodus 7.

      • jasonca

        Was Noah one of god’s ‘chosen people’? I guess that would make him a jew.

      • Daniel O’Reilly

        Noah was one of God’s people, yes, but one does not have to be a Jew to be one of God’s people (for that, one needs to believe that there is a God, and that He alone is God). The only requirement for being a Jew is being born of the line of Jacob.

      • jasonca

        lol smh

    • Joseph M

      Noah’s from the Hebrew Old Testament, Tom. The ‘Christians’ produced the sequel.

    • Spider Jerusalem

      Considering the tale of Noah isn’t a Christian tale, wtf is your point?

  • Agent777

    They should make a heist film on how the Hebrews stole all there stories from the Sumerians and Egyptians They can get Jesse Eisenberg.

    • Joseph M

      “Hebrews, Shebrews…can’t we all just get along?”

      • Ben-G-man

        I’m confused, whats the difference between Hebrews and Jews? When you say Hebrew Bible does that mean the Jewish Bible?
        Also, I though Christians beleived in both the new testamate and the Jewish/Hebrew Bible….

    • Merlin235

      You seem angry.

    Thanks for this. I’ve read the Bible many times and I always wanted to
    know what it would have looked like if Noah was an extra from ‘Game of
    Thrones’ and his kids starred in ‘Hunger Games’.

    Yay! Noah with a knife! Maybe he’ll have a cool knife fight? “I must build this ark!” slash, slash!

  • Mixed Race rich kid NYC

    Is that the new hunger game movie ?
    Why can’t they make quiet, simple movies anymore ?
    Why everything has to be … exciting ????
    Ah fuck it
    I just like the John Huston bible movie too much I guess

  • Straight shootin

    Religion’s for fools

    • Arthur Dent

      *edit* Posted a diff response, but this trash isn’t worth it.

      • Daniel O’Reilly


    • calebrcrawford

      While I do understand how you could arrive at that sentiment, I find that faith is ultimately a part of every worldview. Example: whether I believe in an all powerful being that created everything or I believe that our known universe is simply the result of chance and millions to billions of years of evolution resulting from two molecules colliding, the origin of those molecules that collided to form the universe we live in is still begs explanation… Everything has to come from somewhere… Whether we realize it or not that requires faith (belief in something that cannot be seen, studied, or measured but is still believed to exist). So whether you take on a world-view established by traditional religion or you live your life agnostically or atheistically believing only in science, you are destined to have a set worldview arrived at by a measure of faith in which you have your own standards and beliefs (no standards or no beliefs are still standards and beliefs)… That sounds an awful like religion to me…Anyways, just a thought…

      • wESh

        I dig how you guys are just waiting for opportunity to give us a lesson, but you never succeed when you get to the end, you realize it’s all bullsh*t, so it has to end with “Anyways…” :)

      • calebrcrawford

        Nah, man, the “anyways” is just a “for your consideration” if you will. And if you read my whole comment and left with the opinion of “this is total bs” that’s fine by me. I responded to one worldview with my worldview which was in turn responded to by your worldview. Such is the way of discussion in this world. But Anyways… I’m interested in this Noah movie.

    • Agent777

      Dude, don’t talk trash about religion. It’s given us so many wonderful justifications to murder people and commit genocides, and make fake reasons to go to war for profit! You can’t hate on the opiate of the masses!

      • calebrcrawford

        The atheists Hitler, Mao, and Stalin were all responsible for the death of countless millions in the last century, a “modern, enlightened, non-old testament” time. You cannot judge a belief or worldview by its abuses. If you posit that religion is evil than it also seems through the example of the dictators I listed above that the opposite of religion (still a “religion” in and of itself in my view) is also evil. So perhaps it is not religion that is morally corrupt so much as man is in fact morally corrupt, and the corruption of man leads to the corruption of religion, politics, philosophy, etc… This is not said to defend religion but to point to the fact that all people subscribe to the fundamentals of religious structure one way or the other. To rail against religion is to form a religion of sorts.

    • akretsos

      Completely agree. All this back and fourth over a work of fiction. I will see the film because of the director and screen writer as usual.The cast is pretty impressive also.

  • Merlin235

    I was excited about this project when I first heard about it, but now….not so much. I’m not sure who they’re trying to target here by maiming the Biblical tale. People who hold the text dear aren’t going to like it, and people who hate the text aren’t going to be excited about it anyway. I’m going to go ahead and predict epic fail, unless it’s not so divergent from the text as I’ve been lead to believe.

    • Daniel O’Reilly

      It’s based on Aronofsky’s graphic novel more than it is the actual Biblical tale.

    • Agent777

      Which of the dozen different versions of the Noah story are you referring too? In folklore there is no definitive version.

      • Denty One

        He said ‘biblical’, so he’s referring to the biblical version.

  • Hop

    Looks good, promising, interesting.

  • Hop

    But is that Will Ferrell howling at the sky?
