In all honesty, I’m not sure what to expect from the upcoming Russell Crowe vehicle “Noah”. Initially, I thought it was going to be a biblical drama. And then that first trailer dropped and all of my expectations were thrown out the window.
As you might have surmised, Russell Crowe is playing Noah in the upcoming adaptation of the biblical story directed by Darren Aronofsky (“The Wrestler”). If you’re not familiar with the story, the basic jest is that God warns Noah that the world is going to be flooded. Why? Because humans are doing horrible stuff and God wants to hit the reset button on humanity. So God tells Noah to build a giant boat for his family and two of every animal on Earth so that they may survive the coming cataclysm.
Along with Russell Crowe, the film stars Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, and Logan Lerman. It’s an incredibly strong cast led by a director who has churned out some fantastic movies over the years. Given the scope and magnitude of the film, this is one of the films I’m most looking forward to this year.
With “Noah” releasing on March 28th, there isn’t too much time for promotional material. However, Yahoo Movies has released the final poster for the film and you can check it out below. It’s your standard hero poster, but there’s no denying Russell Crowe always looks cool.
