Darren Aronofsky’s brave, bold and ambitious telling of the story of Noah arrived in UK cinemas at the beginning of April, and even though the film was surrounded by controversy, it did a superb job at the box office. Made on a budget of $125 million, the film passed the $300 million worldwide gross mark at the end of April, and is still showing.
The box office rewards are deservedly so, and I thought Noah to be one of the best films of the year so far. Strange then that a new clip should be released from the film so late in the day, but it is such a glorious clip I am certainly not complaining. If you have seen the film, you will no doubt remember the stunning ‘Creation’ clip, where Noah (Russell Crowe) talks through the creation of the world, and Aronofsky uses some terrific and at times frightening visuals to enhance the impact, and boy does it work!
Check out the clip below, and if you haven’t seen the film,or have no desire to, at least check out the clip because it truly is a treat for the eyes and senses, and will honestly blow you away.
Noah is due for release on DVD & Blu-ray here in the UK on July 28th. I have my copy pre-ordered!

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).
