Thanks to Total Film, we’ve got a new still from The Matrix duo Andy and Lana Wachowski’s next sci-fi offering Jupiter Ascending, which gives us a fresh look at the film’s two leads, Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street) and Mila Kunis (Ted)…
Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
Jupiter Ascending is set for release on July 25th, »

Channing Tatum stars as Caine, a genetically engineered ex-military hunter who arrives on Earth to track down Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), whose genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. A new image has arrived from Jupiter Ascending, which finds Caine putting his new anti-gravity boots to good use in a means to save the Queen of the universe. This Wachowski Starship venture arrives in theaters this summer, and promises to be one of the most unique and original movies of the season.
Jupiter Ascending comes to theaters July 18th, 2014 and stars Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Douglas Booth, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Vanessa Kirby, Terry Gilliam, James D'Arcy. The film is directed by Andy Wachowski, Lana Wachowski. »
Directed by Darren Aronofsky.
A man is chosen by his world’s creator to undertake a momentous mission to rescue the innocent before an apocalyptic flood cleanses the wicked from the world.
This is a film review. I’ve not read The Bible, I’m not a religious person in the slightest although I have no issue in any way, shape or form with those who are. If you watch Noah because you have even the vaguest interest in the Bible story on which it is based, and wish to discuss, argue, or debate the merits of the film based on this, that is entirely your prerogative. I, however, watched it solely because it is the latest film from director Darren Aronofsky, a film maker I admire greatly, »

Director: Darren Aronofsky.
Running Time: 138 minutes.
Synopsis: Noah (Russell Crowe) receives a message from The Creator that the world will suffer a terrible flood and all of mankind will perish. He must build an ark to save the animals and his family, but Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) has other ideas.
“Ha!” you scoff. “A film based on Noah? Everyone knows what happens: a message from God, a big boat, some animals, blah blah blah.” But hold your horses: chances are, you don’t know Darren Aronofsky’s interpretation of the tale of Noah. Sure, it retains some key elements – the message from God, the big boat and some animals – but there’s also a few giant stone angels, forbidden pregnancies and Cockney gangsters thrown in for good measure, because why not?
Indeed, ‘why not »

A man is chosen by God to undertake a momentous mission of rescue before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world.
Boy do I love me some crazy. I’m such a fan of enormous, garish spectacles. Movies like David Lynch’s Dune that are just so wildly over the top that you wonder how they ever came to be. In the final scenes when Kyle MacLachlan if riding a giant worm into battle to a smooth rock soundtrack provided by Toto, you just marvel at all the insanity you watch unfolding in front of you. Or any of the big budget works from the warped mind of Terry Gilliam. I could watch The Adventures of Baron Munchhausen or Time Bandits a thousand times. We are given »

A few posters are now online for the highly-ambitious sci-fi drama, called “Jupiter Ascending,” which is directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski. The film stars Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, and Doona Bae.
You can chek out the posters below.
The film follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis) who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along — her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. »

Now playing in theaters is director Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical epic Noah. As most of you already know, the film is Aronofsky’s take on the Great Flood story from the Bible, with Russell Crowe assuming the role of a man who is told by God that Earth’s population will be wiped out by a flood. The film also stars Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Logan Lerman, and Douglas Booth. For more on Noah, here’s 11 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, 30 images, a featurette, and all our previous coverage. At the recent Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Winstone. He talked about working with Aronofsky, how he got involved in the project, what it was like seeing the Ark for the first time, how he likes to prepare for a role, working with Sean Penn in The Gunman, and more. Hit the jump to watch. »

Turning ninety-seven Biblical verses into a 138-minute movie is a feat unto itself. However, what director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky has done with Noah, is taken those one hundred verses and sought to answer the questions and fill in the blanks left open after reading Genesis 6-9. Noah, in this way, is largely respectful of its source material, but it doesn't accept the simplified nature of the story without wondering the hows and the whys of it all. Instead, Aronofsky and co-writer Ari Handel (The Fountain) wonder how God (referred to as The Creator in the film) "spoke" to Noah (Russell Crowe). It seeks to answer how Noah and his family -- his wife (Jennifer Connelly), three sons, Ham (Logan Lerman), Shem (Douglas Booth) and Japheth (Leo McHugh Carroll), and his adopted daughter Ila (Emma Watson) -- could have built an ark three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. »

Biblical epics were once a staple of the old school Hollywood. Movies like Ben-Hur and The Ten Commandments were the big budget blockbusters of their day. It appears they are making somewhat of a comeback with Exodus being scheduled for release later this year and the recent release of Darren Aronofsky’s latest film Noah.
With Aronofsky at the helm there is little doubt this adaptation will not be a straightforward one, and in fact his Noah has a closer resemblance to 80’s Fantasy than a Sunday School story. Considering the source material his vision will certainly stir some controversy. Beyond those basic implications is the question of do those drastic changes provide a new valuable insight to »

The "Harry Potter" actress plays Booth's onscreen wife in biblical blockbuster "Noah" and they had difficulties shooting a sequence in which they run at each other before embracing.
The moment was shot multiple times and Watson was left with bleeding lips, while Booth was nursing a sore nose and swollen mouth, reports contactmusic.com.
"We had this one scene where we had to run at each other and fit into this perfect passionate kiss. We were fine for the first four. »

Darren Aronofsky’s Noah has made huge waves critically in the last few days as it travels across the world with a series of impressive premieres. The scale of the production and the reputation of Aronofsky has meant that this Russell Crowe-led film has attracted a great deal of attention and it seems that the filmmaker has crafted something very special.
Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson and Ray Winstone join the aforementioned Crowe along with Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth and we’ve got interviews with the main cast below. You can see our interviews from last night’s London Premiere here, and read Stefan Pape’s take on the film here.

Having been behind some of the most ingenious, avant-garde pictures of the past two decades, filmmaker Darren Aronofsky is now trying his hand at something a little more ambitious, with a considerably greater budget than he’s used to working with. Though eyebrows were suitably raised at his decision to tackle the immense story of Noah, there’s a definite sense of intrigue in seeing this innovative director make his first blockbuster, as expectations are elevated accordingly. That being said, it’s still not much better than Evan Almighty.
Russell Crowe takes on the titular role, as a devoted family man who is hand-picked by God, to somehow save mankind and all animal species on earth, ahead of the forthcoming flood that will destroy the planet. In order to obey the omnipotent and benevolent spirit, Noah starts building an ark, with the help of his loving wife Naameh (the severely »

The 23-year-old actress donned a white halter-neck Ralph Lauren dress teamed with a pair of white stilettos as she posed on the carpet, which looked like frothy waves and was adorned with rocks and a makeshift ark.
Watson, who recently dazzled in a dramatic black Oscar de la Renta gown at the New York premiere of Noah, was joined by co-stars Russell Crowe, Douglas Booth, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, producer Scott Franklin and director Darren Aronofsky.
Aronofsky's biblical epic is expanded from its original tale of Noah (Crowe) receiving apocalyptic visions and battling the forces of Tubal-cain (Winstone) as he and his family fight to survive the coming flood.

Noah's impressive launch in the U.S. and select international venues marks another key win for Paramount, the studio behind the once-troubled World War War Z and Martin Scorsese's debauched The Wolf of Wall Street, both of which likewise overcame intense controversy. Photos: 'Noah's' Berlin Premiere: Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Douglas Booth Flood the Red Carpet In the months leading up to its release, Noah, directed by Darren Aronofsky, was surrounded by controversy and criticized for its loose interpretation of the familiar biblical story. After reports began to surface that early screenings of the film angered religious audiences, Paramount

An honourable man called Noah builds an Ark to save a pair of each species on Earth after God decides to perform a Ctrl+Alt+Del manoeuvre on the planet by summoning a flood. Everyone knows the gist of the Biblical story, but how could it be translated into an epic blockbuster that's absorbing from start to finish on both a visceral and cerebral level? Hire Darren Aronofsky.
Noah is not Aronofsky's best work, but the auteur delves deep into the convoluted psyche of the central character much as he did with his masterpieces Black Swan and The Wrestler. As the titular bearded man faced with an excruciating conflict of family versus faith, Russell Crowe is excellent. Alongside the growing grief, he »
It's just a few weeks until Easter and Passover - the perfect time to dive into your faith and see the story many American kids grew up with: Noah's Ark. Check out KidsPickFlicks' Movie Star Movie Crix Joel Courtney (Super 8) and Katherine McNamara (Contest) review - here's an excerpt:
"One thing we can say about Noah is that there has been quite a bit of controversy surrounding it. For our purposes, we are choosing not to take sides in the debate and focus on the film itself. Overall, the film itself was good. The cast gave outstanding performances, the standouts being Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, and Douglas Booth. The special effects team did a fantastic job of augmenting the epic landscapes to create visually stunning scenes - one of note being the scenes with the animals boarding the ark. The sound design of the film was brilliant as well »

A Biblical action disaster fantasy epic that is completely bonkers, endlessly entertaining, and actually religious in that inspiring-and-instructional way that you don’t need to take as literal truth to see the wisdom of. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly love Darren Aronofsky’s movies, love Russell Crowe
I’m “biast” (con): I worry about people who think this is based on a for-real actually-true story
I have read one of the many versions of the source material (and I recognize it as an important work of literature but nothing else)
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
If Sunday school — or as it was for me, Wednesday after-school — had been this much fun, eight-year-old me probably wouldn’t have gotten into arguments with the nuns about how silly it all was: I would have just shut up and went, Wow o wow o wow. Cuz Darren Aronofsky »

Review Ryan Lambie 31 Mar 2014 - 06:32
From the moment an army of angels crashes to Earth from heaven, only to emerge from the loam as stone-clad giants, it’s clear that Darren Aronofsky’s Noah is no ordinary Hollywood epic. This is a Biblical film for the Game Of Thrones generation, a myth for viewers more familiar with the books of Tolkien than the Book of Genesis.
Russell Crowe stars as a battle-ready Noah, who scratches out a grim existence in a pre-flood world that’s part Sunday school story, part Mad Max; the soil is barren, food is scarce, and humanity has descended into feral madness. The planet is overrun by the sons of Cain, the first murderer, and his descendants - led by a seething Ray Winstone as Tubal-Cain - have stripped the landscape of its resources. »
