Kingstone Media Offers More Biblical Epics for Noah Viewers to Explore

8 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Films based on the Holy Bible are as popular now as they were in the 1950s and 1960s when studios gave us epics like The Ten Commandments, Ben-Hur, The Greatest Story Ever Told, King of Kings, Samson and Delilah, and many others. Recently, Son of God made quite an impact in cinemas and there’s plenty more coming our way. Ridley Scott’s Exodus tells the tale of Christian Bale’s Moses leading the Jews out of Egypt. Nicolas Cage will help those seeking answers to the disappearances of loved ones and face the disastrous consequences of being Left Behind.

Darren Aronofsky’s Noah hits Blu-ray and DVD giving those who didn’t watch the movie in theaters an opportunity to see the latest Hollywood Biblical saga. Many might not know that it was actually based on a graphic novel Aronofsky and co-writer Ari Handel made with Canadian artist Niko Henrichon. »

Noah Blu-ray Review

30 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The sign of a good religious picture is the controversy surrounding it.  Whenever a movie asks you to seriously grapple with theological issues, it’s bound to rile those who like their religion safe and comforting.  Noah certainly prompted its share of screeching op-ed pieces, along with the smug indifference of the secular crowd.  In truth, director Darren Aronofsky has punk’d them all: creating a serious, thoughtful and unbearably intense study of our relationship to God in the context of a giant Hollywood blockbuster.  Hit the jump for my full Noah Blu-ray review. Indeed, if the heavier theological musings don’t work for you, then Noah flies on sheer spectacle alone. Aronosfky knows how deploy cinema as a tool of shock and awe, and he pulls no punches here in a reimagined version of the Biblical flood.  Right away, he eschews the coddling Hallmark Channel  model of Biblical tales, »

Noah Blu-Ray Review

29 July 2014 9:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Darren Aronofsky at the helm, Noah was always going to be a Biblically ambitious sight to behold, and a vividly strange one at that. Creative liberties are one thing, but did anyone expect the man behind Requiem For A Dream and The Fountain to adhere strictly to the Bible’s cut and dry storytelling? Aronofsky’s retelling of “Noah’s Ark” blends elements of Lord Of The Rings with God’s bleaker trials and tribulations, getting a wee bit darker than I remember Noah’s adventure, but stunning camerawork and artistic attention make use of massive color palates much like Andy Warhol might – but a Catholic school special, this is not. Either I zoned out when my Catholicism teacher detailed how gargantuan rock monsters helped Noah fight off an invading army of dissidents, or Aronofsky decided that religion needed a jolt of Hollywood magic.

This Week In Home Entertainment: Noah, Twin Peaks And More

29 July 2014 7:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Noah Blu-ray Darren Aronofsky has proven throughout his career that he is capable of stunning visuals and unique storytelling. The director needed both when pursuing the massive movie project, Noah, a story about a biblical flood and thousand of creatures sheltered by one family during the darkest of times. Aronofsky mostly pulls it off, telling a compelling biblical tale with ties to nature, and even monsters of a sort. Noah isn.t the family-friendly story people only familiar with the title might expect. Early on, we are introduced to a young Noah, who witnesses the death of his father at the hands of a sinning man named Tubal-Cain (Ray Winstone). As a grown-up, Noah (Russell Crowe) strives to live by the more earthly tenets his father taught them, tenets he then teaches his own wife (Jennifer Connelly) and sons (Logan Lerman, Douglass Booth and Leo McHugh Carroll). He begins to »

New on DVD/Blu-ray: The Spectacular 'Noah,' the Surprisingly Sweet 'The Other Woman' and More

29 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Noah - Paramount Pictures - Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD Director: Darren Aronofsky Cast: Russell CroweJennifer ConnellyRay Winstone,Anthony HopkinsEmma Watson. Full cast + crew Noah is a stunning piece of filmmaking. Of course, that's to be expected when it comes to a movie about the construction of a giant ark intended to survive an apocalyptic flood, but Darren Aronofsky pushes his movie far beyond your standard biblical epic and turns it into a transcendent, engrossing spectacle. Seriously, there are just some downright gob-smacking visuals in this movie, with many of them coming before the big flood even happens. But Noah is also a complex morality tale about the very nature of mankind and the way we often blind...

‘Star Wars: Episode 8′ Director Rian Johnson Teases His Franchise Plans

29 July 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Going from indie work to a big budget studio franchise is quite the change of pace. Darren Aronofsky recently breached that gap earlier this year with Noah, with directors such as Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) following his example during summer’s blockbuster onslaught. The transition isn’t always easy; the studio system has more checks and balances in place, and is frequently governed by the bottom line, and for some filmmakers, the loss of cherished creative freedom can be a major deal breaker.

But that’s not going to stop Rian Johnson from hopping aboard with Lucasfilm to work on Star Wars Episode VIII. Johnson may be best known for his 2012 film Looper, his third effort following 2008′s The Brothers Bloom and his ...

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Noah,' 'The Other Woman,' 'Twin Peaks'

29 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery"

What's It About? David Lynch's two season TV series had viewers riveted to figure out who killed the beaming blonde homecoming queen Laura Palmer. And maybe, just maybe, some of us fell a little in love with Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), the curious FBI agent sent to investigate Laura's murder while enjoying many damn fine cups of coffee.

Why We're In: This ten-disc set comes with both seasons of "Twin Peaks," as well as the movie "Fire Walk With Me," plenty of featurettes, and deleted scenes (!!!!) from the beloved TV series. Not that we'll ever really know what happened in the strange little town of Twin Peaks, Wa.

New on DVD and Blu-ray

Fantasia 2014 Review: The Midnight Swim, Where Still Waters Run Deep

28 July 2014 8:01 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

In Werner Herzog's wonderful documentary Encounters at the End of the World, he makes a point of showing that if you dive deep enough in those cold, antarctic waters, the experience is not all that different than voyaging into outer space. Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain also used microscopic images of bacteria in petri dishes as the special effects foundation for creating a dying nebulae on screen. I am continually fascinated with inner space and microscopic scale being as infinite as the far stretching galaxies.  Director Sarah Adina Smith, with her first feature, plays with both these ideas, but she does so with character and sibling drama as the driver for in her delicate psychodrama, The Midnight Swim. Introverted and damaged, twenty-something June Brooks makes a dive deep down into herself...

Writer Ari Handel Tells Us What Movie Was Harder to Get Made, 'Noah' or 'The Fountain'

28 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Ari Handel was studying to become a neuroscientist when he met a young man named Darren Aronofsky at college. Fast-forward a decade or so, and now Handel is Aronofsky's most frequent collaborator, having coproduced The Wrestler and Black Swan, as well as having cowritten The Fountain. Their latest film together is Noah, starring Russell Crowe as a man tasked by visions from his God to build an ark before mankind is swept off the planet by an unrelenting flood. The visionary film hits Blu-ray and DVD this week, which afforded us the opportunity to chat with Handel about the movie, the pressures of expectations and biblical adaptations, and if it'll take another eight years before we see a script written by him on the big screen.   Movies.com: Were there any overt...

Contest: Win Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' On Blu-Ray

28 July 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Washing into theatres this past spring, Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" was unlike any Bible story brought to the big screen in recent memory. Or perhaps ever. Moving away from the traditional Sunday School narrative you might remember, Aronofsky's vision was darker, but also deeply looked at the price of faith, spiritually and emotionally. And if you missed it or want to see it again, we've got a way to make that happen. But first, a recap: Aronofsky's film brings together Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone, and Douglas Booth in the tale that sees Noah tasked by God to build an ark before a flood comes to wipe out the inhabitants of Earth who have gone astray. But Noah will find his faith, survival and relationships challenged by the task, one that must see him reckon with the sin within his own family and himself. »

DVD Review: 'Noah'

28 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Let it be howled from the mountain tops that with his extraordinary Noah (2014), director Darren Aronofsky has crafted a bold, phantasmagorical interpretation of the Old Testament tale as we've never seen it before. In it, mankind - led by Tubal-Cain (British hardman Ray Winstone) - has spread like a cancer across the world, consuming all in their path and living in smoggy, ashen cities. "The Creator", in his infinite wisdom, decides to send a great flood to cleanse the earth of his creation and start anew. He does, however, choose to save Noah (Russell Crowe, on-form here), last patriarch of the antediluvian age, and his family, who must build an ark that will house two of every living creature.

Aronofsky, Favreau and Murch to Talk “Movies in Your Brain” at the Academy

25 July 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

As Luc Besson's latest actioner "Lucy" shows us the potential of an unlocked human brain, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is pitching the "science" side of filmmaking. They've enlisted Hollywood brainiacs Walter Murch, Darren Aronofsky, and Jon Favreau to dig into “Movies in Your Brain: The Science of Cinematic Perception,” a panel that mixes presentations and interacts with the audience in order to provide "a fascinating look at how experiments in neuroscience can advance our understanding of cinema, and how cinema can advance our understanding of the human brain.” How, exactly, this panel will illustrate this is a mystery to be solved. They'll be helped by scientists with more degrees than you or I can shake our measly Bachelor’s at who will examine the brain's reactions to various filmic elements such as editing, sound, cinematography and screenwriting. Furthermore, host Tim J. Smith “specializes in the study of visual. »

After experiencing visions of an apocalyptic deluge, Noah (Russell Crowe) takes extreme, ark-building measures to protect his family from the coming flood.

Check Out Noah: Ark Builder Mobile Game, Now On iTunes

23 July 2014 12:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We enjoyed Noah when it arrived earlier this year, and that’s why we’re happy to continue supporting the film here at We Got This Covered by exclusively debuting a new mobile game developed for Paramount Home Media Distribution. Titled Noah: Ark Builder, its release on the iTunes Store today ties in with the current digital availability and upcoming Blu-ray release of Noah on July 29th.

From the looks of the below images, which We Got This Covered is happy to be exclusively providing for our readers, this game is a fun puzzler in the vein of Bejeweled and other tile games. The objective of the Ark Builder app is to progress through multiple levels, gaining the tools and materials needed to construct an ark like the one Noah rode to safety with his family in the Darren Aronofsky-directed film.

The Batman movie you'll never see: Darren Aronofsky's Year One

23 July 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The first few pages of Frank Miller's script for the shelved Batman: Year One have a disturbed Bruce Wayne waking up from chronic nightmares, some nameless prostitutes being slapped around by their pimp, and Jim Gordon putting a gun in his mouth.

You can see why Warner Bros didn't ultimately go for the project, which was to be helmed by Darren Aronofsky and would have rewritten the Bat mythology even more radically than Miller already had in his comic book arc of the same name.

"Our take was to infuse the Batman franchise with a dose of reality," Aronofsky has said, citing The French Connection and Taxi Driver among his influences. "We tried to ask that eternal question, 'What does it take for a real man to put on tights and fight crime?'" It's an approach not far from the one ultimately taken by Christopher Nolan in Batman Begins, »
