Cinematographer Matthew Libatique Shares a Peek Inside the Ark for Darren Aronofsky’s NOAH

Director Darren Aronofsky is currently in the middle of production on his Biblical epic Noah, and a tantalizing look at one of the film’s more noteworthy sets has landed online.  We’ve already seen an official image of Russell Crowe as the titular figure as well as some set photos of Logan Lerman and other cast members in character, but arguably the most exciting image we’ve seen thus far came from Aronofsky himself.  He shared a look at the construction of a seriously enormous ark that will be used in the film, and now Noah’s cinematographer Matthew Libatique has provided a peek inside the reptile-filled finished ship.  Hit the jump for more.

It’s difficult to tell if this is image is actually from the constructed ark or a soundstage, but either way this is our first (admittedly minor) look at what the inside of Aronofsky’s version of “Noah’s Ark” looks like.  Noah opens on March 28th, 2014.

    This seems idiotic. Why are there that many snakes? Did Samuel L Jackson put in an order for them? Does this mean there will also be 500 lions on the ark?

    It’s always tricky when you adapt something from the Bible and put it on the screen, and nothing I’ve seen or heard about this one has convinced me it’s going to be any good…

      There’s more than just one kind of snake….

    • mattinacan

      there are a lot of different types of snakes, go to the zoo sometime

      Not nearly as idiotic as your comment. In the arc, there were 2 of every species. There’s quite a few species of snakes.

      Does the fact that Aronofsky’s directing convince you that it might be “any good?” Probably not, given you’re a dumbass.

      • Ark

        And hopefully you don’t honestly believe that the at the time this myth was written that folks really knew just how many different species of snakes (or other animals) there really are. Do you realize just how big a boat that would have to be? This story of Noah’s Ark is a MYTH. Nothing more, nothing less.

      • prod

        Probably this big

        Don’t know if this is the real ark but it sure is an interesting read.

        So many people calling the OP an idiot, but have you ever thought that maybe he only brought two of each kind; which is you know, what it actually says. The man wouldn’t have needed to bring every species in the snake family. For one thing there would’ve been less varieties of snakes back then, and another thing as long as they’re sexually compatible then the other varieties don’t matter. So, scientifically speaking, that photo is stylistically effective but not logically sound.

        Use some common sense, the world we live in today isn’t the same world people lived in thousands of years ago, you need to carry that context when studying history.

        Though the OP didn’t give credit to the fact this is Darren Aronofsky, that should be plenty enough to convince you it will be good entertainment.

    Plus it’s not a straightforward adaptation. It’s based on a graphic novel.

    • Strong Enough

      yeah HIS graphic novel

    Darren Aronofsky is no stranger to this type of work. He worked on a similar project, the very underrated and stunningly beautiful The Fountain (2006).
    Add to that:
    1. Academy Award winner RUSSELL CROWE (Gladiator, L.A. Confidential),
    2. the gorgeous JENNIFER CONNELLY (Requiem for a Dream, A Beautiful Mind),
    3. Academy Award winner and Lord-of-Acting ANTHONY HOPKINS (The Silence of the Lambs, The Elephant Man)
    4. Badass RAY WINSTONE (The Departed, Hugo)
    5. A talented supporting cast which includes up-and-comers LOGAN LERMAN (Percy Jackson, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and EMMA WATSON (Harry Potter, My Week With Marilyn), the always good MARTON CSOKAS (The Lord of the Rings, Kingdom of Heaven), and MARK MARGOLIS.
    6. One of the most ‘epic’ screenwriters around: JOHN LOGAN (The Last Samurai, Gladiator, Skyfall)
    ….
    Need I say more? NOAH will be a surefire winner!

      This was supposed to go under “Nate H”‘s comment, but apparently it wasn’t meant to be.

    Is this the Prometheus sequel? Cuz that set sure looks Geigery. ( yeah, I made that word up, like ‘crumnungus’).

    As fantasy/mythology, this could be quite spectacular. This is a very old tale (the Bible wasn’t the first). However, it’s evident that many people – some of which appear to have posted here – believe it is a page out of actual history. I’m not familiar with the graphic novel it’s based upon, but if this story of the Ark conflicts too much with the Biblical account, the Evangelicals will not be pleased. Personally, I hope it takes quite a few liberties with the story. After all, this is a story that has been passed down and has changed over time, peoples, cultures, and nations. And there was never actually a global flood, a new take on the old story should not only be expected, it should be welcomed.
