When you’re making a movie inspired by the story of Noah’s Ark, you’re probably prepared to get wet, but 5,000 gallons of water per minute? That’s exactly what special effects first unit foreman David Poole was dropping right on top of the cast of Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. Using a rain machine, Poole and his team even managed to pump enough water from hydrants to their tanks and out through their rain machine to break a record; they dumped more rain in a single take than any other movie in history.
Noah will be available digitally on Tuesday, July 15th and Blu-ray on July 29th with over an hour of behind-the-scenes special features. However, we’ve got a little something you can check out right now. Hit the jump to catch our exclusive Noah Blu-ray clip showing how this elaborate rain machine works. The clip is from the special features available on the digital HD release. It will also be available on the Blu-ray in two weeks.
