The Rocket (12A)
Children are often the best ambassadors for world cinema and so it proves here, in a Laos-set tale that's sympathetic but never condescending. The story centres on a displaced boy burdened by a perceived "curse". But it's told with documentary-like conviction and distinctly local details, from James Brown-worshipping war vets to the unexploded ordnance littering the landscape.
Under The Skin (15)
Glazer's delectably mystifying sci-fi makes Glasgow look like another planet – as seen through the eyes of Johansson's alien seductress, on the prowl for unsuspecting males. It sounds like a highbrow Species, but the imagery and sustained strangeness put it in a realm of its own.
The Zero Theorem (15)

We're just two weeks away from the Biblical apocalypse that will be unleashed in Noah as Russell Crowe is tasked with building a vessel to save all the animals of the world. And that means the hype machine is in full swing with four new TV spots being unveiled that we'll likely see all over the small screen in the next two weeks. Whether or not the film will pull in the coveted religious demographic, this looks like quite the visual spectacle from Darren Aronofsky, and it's easily the biggest film the director has ever made (just check out the featurette on the ark itself). But will it actually turn out to be any good? See for yourself. Watch! Here's the four new TV spots for Darren Aronofsky's Noah from Paramount Pictures: In Darren Aronofsky's take on the Biblical tale, Noah (Russell Crowe) suffers visions of an apocalyptic deluge, »

The marketing campaign for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah is continuing today with four new TV spots, an IMAX poster and full details on Mr. Clint Mansell’s soundtrack. It’s a lot, but Paramount wants to make sure that they get people into theatres for this one. The film isn’t an easy sell, and given that it’s sure to cause quite a bit of controversy, the studio is doing everything in their power to get people on board with Aronofsky’s latest before it arrives.
Having seen Noah, I can tell you two things. And that’s pretty much all I can tell you since I’m under embargo. One, is that Mansell delivers another excellent score here. Intense, powerful and moving, it fits the film beautifully and is absolutely a highlight.
The other thing I can tell you is that the marketing for this movie is a bit, »

The stars stepped out looking pretty and polished this week, but some rose above the rest, earing top honors for best dressed. First up is Emma Watson at the Berlin premiere of Noah. We can't look at her gorgeous Wes Gordon gown without immediately thinking of Justin Timberlake's 2006 hit, "SexyBack." The open back on her dress is the perfect sultry touch. Jennifer Connelly also stunned at the Noah premiere. She knows exactly how to work the thigh-high slit in her black Lanvin gown, and we love her faux bob hairstyle. Also looking great this week was Emmy Rossum. The Shameless actress opted for a bodycon Vera Wang dress and simple nude heels for the Need for Speed screening in New »
A storm is coming. We’ve known this day would come for a couple of years now and have been bracing ourselves ever since. Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah” finally makes its way to theaters worldwide on March 28th, and if there’s already some controversy surrounding the director’s interpretation of the Biblical story, you know those dissenters will only get louder in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you’re a big fan of the director then you most likely can’t wait to hear the soundtrack from frequent collaborator Clint Mansell. The composer has worked on all six of Aronofsky’s films thus far and this time he’s received the help of the Kronos Quartet with his score. Thanks to Nonesuch Records, you can get your hands on the soundtrack on March 25th, three days before the movie comes out. Also included on the soundtrack is »

The 23-year-old teamed the gown with Christian Louboutin heels for the event held at the Zoo Palast theatre Thursday, reports dailymail.co.uk.
The gown had a halter neck and a cut-out detail at the back, which was held in place with a trailing piece of ribbon. Her elegant outfit puts her back at the top in the fashion game.
The "Harry Potter Series" actress slicked her long hair back and applied a red lipstick as she posed confidently on the. »

Absolutely stunning, Emma Watson. The 23-year-old beauty turned heads in a jaw-dropping Wes Gordon gown when she arrived at the Berlin premiere of her film Noah on Thursday, where she looked stunning in the navy and black tulle chiffon number as she promoted the Darren Aronofsky-directed flick. Watson paired the delicate floor-length dress with a bright red lip, high-heeled pointed-toe pumps and wore her hair in a straight and slicked back style, adding two large silver rings, as well as two black rings, to accessorize her fancy frock. And in case you can't get enough of the former Harry Potter stars' latest head-turning look (seriously, we're »
Emma Watson is wise beyond her years!The "Noah" star covers the April issue of Elle magazine, where she opens up about coming of age in Hollywood and maintaining her own life outside of her career. While the 23-year-old pretty much grew up before our eyes thanks to the "Harry Potter" flicks, Watson says she's "jealous" of actresses who get to live their coming of age years outside of the spotlight. "There are all these actresses who have emerged in the last year or two, and they get to emerge as this complete human being. And I’m so jealous," she tells the mag. And because Watson has grown up in front of the camera, she's a firm believer in separating her career from her personal life. "I remember reading this thing that Elizabeth Taylor wrote. She had her first kiss in character. On a movie set," she explains. "It really struck me. »

It's exciting times for fans of Darren Aronofsky, Russell Crowe, acts of meteorological mayhem and giant wooden sea vessels: Noah is less than a month away from our cinemas. Aronofsky's adaptation of the Bible story will see humanity brought low before the might of its creator. Only Noah and his family heed the warnings of impending doom. This nifty new motion poster takes us inside the ark that the grizzled patriarch has constructed to save them all from a watery grave. Crowe is, of course, playing the ark-building family man, with Jennifer Connelly as his wife. He not only has the watery genocide of a discouraged deity to deal with in this story, but also the violent opposition of Ray Winstone's Tubal Cain. Anthony Hopkins plays Methuselah, Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth are Noah's sons, and Emma Watson plays a friend of the family, Ila. The word of mouth hasn't always been kind, »
Age: Minus two weeks.
Appearance: That depends. There are about seven different versions.
I'm confused. I thought there was only one Noah in the Bible? And didn't he live for 950 years? Sure, in a biblical kind of way.
Ok. And how's that going? Not well. Test audiences didn't »
With Hollywood’s take on Biblical epic, Noah floating ever closer to cinema screens, we’ve got two new teasers for you to watch.
First up is a clip from the movie, charting the genesis of the ark, and secondly the trailer introduced by Noah co-star, Emma Watson. The Harry Potter actor is filmed bumbling her lines a few times as she introduces the trailer for fans on her Facebook and Twitter pages.
Directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Russell Crowe, Noah retells the story of God’s flooding of the earth to punish humanity for its sins – in a creative way. It’s already proved controversial at test screenings (you can read Paramount’s disclaimer at the end of the trailer, attesting to its “creative license”).

Each month, we turn our spotlight onto the unsung artists behind the biggest new movie releases. Last month we highlighted Phil Lord and Chris Miller, co-writers and co-directors of The Lego Movie. This month it’s Clint Mansell, composer of the original score for Noah.
Chances are, whether you realise it or not, you have heard the work of Clint Mansell many times over. Even if you have never in your life watched a film scored by this prolific musician and composer, you will have unconsciously captured the various strains of his melodies on countless adverts, film trailers and episodes of Top Gear. Mansell – the former lead singer and guitarist of ‘alternative rock’ band Pop Will Eat Itself – makes memorable, moving music.
As a founding member of Pop Will Eat Itself, Mansell helped kickstart a group that would evolve through many stages of development during its fifteen year career. With »

Will “Noah” float with the faithful? That's the $130 million question for Paramount and New Regency. TheWrap obtained a draft of the script by Darren Aronofsky and provided it to Dr. Daniel L. Smith-Christopher, professor of Old Testament studies at at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, who read it and shared his thoughts (below). His conclusion? The story is almost an “anti-human, pro-environmental polemic,” though it hardly violates what he understands to be a biblical moral story — and not necessarily a historical narrative to begin with.

Darren Aronofksy's Noah, which opens on March 28th, is expected to open well and is now getting rapturous advance praise with weirdly common references to The Fountain because it's "polarizing" and yet no one is saying they hate it, so, um try again! You have to have both love and hate for something to be called polarizing, duh.
I have been worried about it, just like Michael, but I'm excited now.
But if there isn't a scene where Noah apologizes for leaving The Last Unicorns behind, I'mma be pissed.
Yes, No, Maybe So - Ja on the trailer

If early word is anything to go by, Darren Aronofsky's Noah looks like it could turn out to be a hugely divisive film, with the Biblical epic drawing comparison's with another of Aronofsky's ambitious projects, The Fountain. That could potentially spell bad news for Paramount Pictures, who will surely have lofty financial ambitions for the director's first studio blockbuster. Anyway,Harry Potter).
with its release now just a couple of weeks away a new trailer has arrived online, which is introduced by Emma Watson (Harry Potter).
Noah sees Russell Crowe (Man of Steel) leading the cast as the Ark-builder, while the cast also includes Jennifer Connelly (Requiem for a Dream), Douglas Booth (Romeo and Juliet), Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson), Anthony Hopkins (Thor: The Dark World), Ray Winstone (Snow White and the Huntsman), Kevin Durand (Resident Evil: Retribution), Marton Csokas (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and Dakota Goyo (Real Steel).

Paramount's desperate efforts to market Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic to Christians appear to have failed
Studio executives tested an alternate version of Darren Aronofsky's forthcoming biblical epic Noah that opened with a montage of religious images and ended with a Christian rock song, it has been revealed.
Aronofsky said recently that he had won a battle with executives to screen his own version of Noah in cinemas after around half a dozen alternate cuts failed to find traction with evangelical filmgoers. Now a new profile of the film-maker in The New Yorker details the desperate lengths to which Paramount went to court religious audiences in the Us, who had earlier turned their noses up at a test screening of Aronofksy's edit.
"In December, Paramount tested its fifth, and 'least Aronofskian', version of Noah: an 86-minute beatitude that began with a montage of religious imagery and ended with a Christian rock song, »
