The first clip for director Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical epic Noah has landed online. The film is Aronofsky’s take on the Great Flood story from the Bible, with Russell Crowe taking on the titular role. In this debut clip, we see Crowe’s Noah explaining his God-given task to his family, specifically discussing how they need to round up animals for the ark. Though Aronofsky had a bit of a push-and-pull with Paramount over the cut of the film, we know that the cut being released in theaters will indeed be Aronofsky’s director’s cut, and I’m excited to see what his take on the classic story entails.
Hit the jump to watch the clip, and if you missed any of Matt’s set visit coverage be sure to check out his full set visit report and interview with Crowe. The film also stars Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Douglas Booth, Logan Lerman, and Anthony Hopkins. Noah opens in theaters on March 28th.
