Paramount has released 11 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah. Aronofsky’s adaptation will take the familiar story about Noah (Russell Crowe) building the ark to survive the flood, but provide the director’s unique take on the material. Those who saw the premiere last week applauded the film, but acknowledged that it’s likely to be divisive, which is shocking because everyone agrees on everything from the Bible. This footage goes into Aronofsky directing his talented cast as well as the work that went into building the ark, so it’s worth checking out.
Hit the jump to check out the footage. The film also stars Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Douglas Booth, Logan Lerman, and Anthony Hopkins. Noah opens in theaters on March 28th.
Here’s the official logline for Noah:
Russell Crowe stars as Noah in the film inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice and hope. Directed by visionary filmmaker Darren Aronofsky.
