From the inspirational story of courage, sacrifice, hope and redemption, Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler,” “The Fountain”) brings to the screen Noah. Academy Award winner Russell Crowe portrays the man chosen by God to undertake a momentous mission of rescue before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world. Never before has the full story been brought to life on screen in a vivid epic – inviting the audience to experience these spectacular events through the eyes and emotions of Noah and his family, as they journey through fear and faith, destruction and triumph, hardship and hope.
The production took the film’s world-class cast and crew on their own unexpected journey as they set out to intensively research Noah’s world, honor the text and board an authentic Ark, hand-built to biblically-detailed specifications. In every aspect of the film’s performances, action and innovative special-effects, the creative team’s aim was »

Darren Aronofsky will be releasing his version of the Noah arc story, which will most likely take the approach that Noah was mentally ill rather than a messenger of God. This will be Darren Aronosky’s first film and follow up to his smash hit film from 2010 “Black Swan.” It’s going to be interesting to see what Darren Aronosfsky can do after four years without a movie.

New 300,Rise Of An Empire movie delivered great action,drama,gore & more. Paramount Pictures released their new action/drama flick, "300: Rise Of An Empire" into theaters this weekend.

According to Islam, films portraying prophets are forbidden, and Noah is considered a prophet of the Muslim god Allah. The governments of Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates have already notified "Noah" studio Paramount that they will not allow the film's release in their respective countries, and Egypt, Jordan, and Kuwait are expected to follow suit.
While "Noah" already has an Egyptian release date -- March 26 -- the country's Sunni Muslim institute Al-Azhar has condemned the film, issuing a statement on Thursday that said the movie is "contrary to faith and to the fundamentals of the Islamic Sharia [law]."
"Al-Azhar renews its rejection to the screening of any production that characterizes Allah's prophets and messengers and the companions of the Prophet [Mohammed]," the statement said. »

After coming under fire in the Us for its moody portrayal of the biblical protagonist, Noah has been banned from release in several Middle Eastern countries.
Censorship boards in Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates have announced that they will prohibit the release of Darren Aronofsky’s latest film, as Russell Crowe’s depiction of Noah goes against Islamic law which bans the portrayal of prophets. This announcement comes just weeks before its release, with Egypt expected to follow. Al-Azhar, a Sunni Muslim institute, released a statement:
‘Al-Azhar renews its rejection to the screening of any production that characterizes Allah’s prophets and messengers and the companions of the Prophet. Therefore, Al-Azhar announces the prohibition of the upcoming film about the Allah’s messenger Noah – peace be upon him’.
However, this comes as no surprise to Paramount, as they’ve said they knew that the film would antagonize certain Islamic countries. »

What we love about movies is we are transported into a world or land of imagination. Movies such as Harry Potter and Avatar let us enter a whole new world, and with the advanced technology available to filmmakers today, any world can come alive. However, most of the actors on set are placed in front of a green screen, or work on a sound stage designed to look like the land. Rarely is the set completely transformed into Hogwarts or Pandora, until now.
The film Noah brings the ark to life... literally. Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky wanted to build an accurate portrayal of the ark that is so detailed in the Bible. It took over one year to design the arc set, based off of the description in the Bible, and an additional six months to build it. While only 1/3 of the ark was built to scale for filming, as the »

Director Darren Aronofsky describes the challenges of building the enormous ark in a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Noah. While this Biblical adventure has come under fire from religious groups, regarding how this iconic story is portrayed, the filmmaker reveals that, when it came to crafting the ark itself, they used the actual specifications that are laid out in the Bible. Production designer Mark Friedberg explains that the ark is 30 cubits high by 50 cubits wide by 300 cubits long, with a cubit equaling the distance between one's elbow to forefinger, and that the practical version they built was 165 feet long, which is extended digitally to roughly 500 feet. We also hear from Russell Crowe, who describes seeing the ark for the first time, and Emma Watson, along with footage from the set to see how huge this undertaking really is.
There has been much debate throughout history about the Biblical ark, if it ever really existed, and just how it would have been (intelligently) designed. Luckily, this new featurette for Darren Aronofsky's Noah puts that question to rest, in the cinematic world at least. This behind-the-scenes look at ark design, construction, and functionality gives us just the briefest of introductions into the approach the filmmakers had in adapting the Biblical tale, and it looks to be one epic journey that's actually worthy of the modifier. If nothing else, you'll learn just what a cubit is. Starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins, and Logan Lerman, Noah opens March 28.

If there’s one new release this month that I’m really looking forward to in a big way, it’s Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, which has long been a passion project of his. The last time he had one of those on his mind, we got The Fountain, which is a divisive film, yes, but also one of my five favorite films of all time, so suffice to say, I’m 100% in for this one. Aronofsky has a top notch cast on hand too, including Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connolly, Emma Watson, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Logan Lerman, and Nick Nolte, among others. I’m not usually big on biblical epics, but this could be an exception. A new look at the movie has arrived today in the form of a 30 second TV Spot, and I’ve got that for you all to check out momentarily. The flick comes out »

Darren Aronofsky's Noah is almost upon us and a batch of 16 new pictures have just come online along with a new "Chosen" TV Spot and a "Flood" motion poster, which is to say, Batten down the hatches, marketing ahoy! Of the pics, I found the first one on the second page the most interesting, exemplifying the size of the ark that was built for the production as Aronofsky and Jennifer Connelly chat it out. The batch of images come from Cine Marcado (via The Playlist) and among them are several shots from the film combined with behind-the-scenes looks such as the one I just described. Additionally, at the bottom of the second page is a new motion poster for the film, which itself is essentially just a brief trailer that ends with the look of the poster. You've seen 'em before, but you may be interested in this one. »
