Paramount Pictures has released a large batch of new images from director Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming Biblical epic Noah. The film is Aronofsky’s take on the Great Flood story from the Bible, with Russell Crowe assuming the titular role of a man who is told by God that Earth’s population will be wiped out by a flood. The film drew strong if somewhat polarizing reactions from its world premiere, and it has already encountered its share of controversy throughout development. Hopefully the finished product reflects Aronofsky’s full, uncompromised vision, which is sure to result in a wholly original take on this well-known story.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins, Logan Lerman, and Douglas Booth. 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.
