The first footage from Darren Aronofsky’s highly anticipated, and highly controversial take on the Noah story, has just landed. The footage comes by way of two extremely brief teasers (both only seven seconds long), but is a clear indication that the full length trailer is on its way. In fact, a Tweet by Aronofsky himself states that the official trailer will be attached to some screenings of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which is released next Thursday.
The brief teasers don’t really show much, with the first showing a catastrophic event and Russell Crowe’s Noah saying “it begins”. The second teaser features some more landscape footage (which is stunning by the way), and Emma Watson declaring “the choice is in your hands Noah”. This will do for now considering the official trailer is just around the corner.
The first poster for the film has also been released, and you can see that, and the two teasers, below.
Noah is directed and co-written by Darren Aronofsky, with John Logan and Ari Handel also on writing duties. The film stars Russell Crowe as Noah, Ray Winstone as his nemesis Tubal-Cain, Jennifer Connelly plays Noah’s wife Naameh,Douglas Booth will play Noah’s son Shem and Emma Watson his love interest Ila. Anthony Hopkins will play Noah’s 969 year old Grandfather Methuselah, and Logan Lerman and Kevin Durand also appear.
Noah will arrive in UK cinemas 28th March 2014.
NOAH is a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood. The screenplay was written by Aronofsky and Ari Handel and revised by Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter John Logan (GLADIATOR, HUGO).
