Noah review

I’ve been a fan of director Darren Aronofsky since I first saw Pi. His film Requiem for a Dream remains one of my favorite movies of all time. Aronofsky has yet to make a movie I have dislike; his last few films were all in my top ten films of those respective years. Over the last decade, Aronofsky has become attached to a bunch of big budget projects including the films that later became Batman Begins, Watchmen, The Wolverine and Robocop. I’ve been itching to see what Aronofsky could accomplish with a larger budget. Noah is that film. Read my Noah review after the jump.

Noah featurette

Paramount’s Noah has come under fire from certain religious leaders, but the movie has its religious fans, too. Several of them have stepped up to defend Darren Aronofsky‘s Bible-based epic in a new featurette crafted by Christian media speaker Phil Cooke, praising it as a “powerful,” “profound,” “pro-faith and pro-God” work.

Even if you’re not particularly religious, the video is well worth checking out. Screenwriter Ari Handel and Noah biblical advisor John Snowden offer their insights into the making of the movie, while various Christian leaders discuss some of the major themes of the story. Check out the Noah featurette, and learn how it came to be, after the jump.

Noah B-roll

It’s just over a week until the public debut of Darren Aronofsky‘s new film Noah, but you can all but visit the set of the film thanks to a long reel of Noah b-roll footage. This look at the creation of Noah shows off the creation of the Ark (previewed in a featurette not long ago) but also takes us into the capture of a confrontation between Russell Crowe and Ray Winstone.

We see this sort of b-roll footage for some big movies now, but it’s surprising to get such a look at Aronofsky in action. Read More »

‘Noah’ Trailer: Now With More Emma Watson

Emma Watson in Noah

Most of the earlier promos for Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah have (quite reasonably) focused on three elements: Noah, his ark, and the flood. But there’s a whole great supporting cast behind those main focal points, and the latest Noah trailer focuses on one of them.

The promo is introduced by Emma Watson, in an adorably flustered fashion, and features tons of new footage of the Harry Potter actress. Fans of hers will be happy to see she gets all sorts of things to do in the movie. It’s not just standing behind Russell Crowe looking vaguely concerned. Watch the new Noah trailer after the jump.

Jennifer Connelly and Russell Crowe in Noah

Noah represents a big change of pace for Darren Aronofsky in that it’s his first big-budget studio film. But those who worry that he’s sold his soul to Paramount Pictures needn’t worry. Following some early screenings, the word going around is Aronofsky is as bold and ambitious as ever — for better or for worse.

The closest comparison seems to be Aronfsky’s The Fountain. That may be good news for die-hard Aronofsky fans, many of whom consider that movie his best, but it could also be bad news for the studio, as The Fountain tanked horribly at the box office. Hit the jump to find out what people are saying about Noah.

Considering that Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah centers on a flood of literally Biblical proportions, it seemed a bit ironic that our Noah set visit in October 2012 was delayed several hours by some routine autumn drizzle. But once we finally arrived on the Long Island set, it quickly became clear that the trip would be worth the wait.

Rising out of the nighttime fog was a massive cube-like structure — the famed ark. It was sitting in the middle of a field surrounded by trees, and though I wasn’t more than an hour’s drive from my own apartment, seeing it made me feel like I’d been transported to another time and place entirely. Aronofsky’s films have never been short on ambition, and Noah obviously wasn’t going to be an exception.

Over the course of that evening, we got to speak with Aronofsky and star Russell Crowe to learn just how this stunning passion project had come together over the course of many, many years. Hit the jump to find out what we learned.

Jack Reynor in Transformers Age of Extinction

The list of confirmed Star Wars Episode VII actors still hovers around zero, but the list of rumored stars seems to grow longer every week. The latest subject of speculation and gossip is Jack Reynor, who’s probably best known for a role that hasn’t even hit theaters yet — he’s the star of upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction. More on this story after the jump.

Update: The Irish Independent prints a statement from Reynor’s reps saying “There is no truth in that — Jack is not taking on a role in the latest Star Wars film… He has not been approached about a role and there has been no discussion… The rumours started online, but there is no foundation to them.”

Nicolas Cage in Left Behind

We’ll say this for Nic Cage: you can’t accuse him of having a predictable career. Just yesterday, we were eagerly looking forward to seeing the Oscar winner return to form with David Gordon Green’s Joe. Today, we’re back to questioning his taste in thrillers thanks to the first clip from Left Behind.

Based on Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins‘ bestselling religious series about the Rapture, the sci-fi thriller follows a group of survivors left to watch chaos unfold on Earth. The books were adapted for the screen once before, with Kirk Cameron in the lead role, but this new version, directed by Vic Armstrong (The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles) is intended to be a more “mainstream” version. Watch the scene after the jump.
