Paramount Pictures have just released their first one sheet and trailer for Darren Aronofsky's (Black Swan) Noah.
Written by John Logan (Gladiator) and Aronofsky himself, this is not your traditional retelling of the age old bible story, but rather a radical reimagining, complete with giant angels known as Watchers.
But whilst it looks as though the promises of a weird twist on the Biblical story will be kept, it also looks like the film will deliver on the promise of epic action, as Noah prepares to defend his escape ship against those who would steal it.
Russell Crowe (Man Of Steel) plays the titular ark builder who is inspired by a dream of the Almighty to build the mighty big boat. Jennifer Connelly (Blood Diamond) plays his supportive wife, Naameh, with Douglas Booth (Romeo And Juliet) and Logan Lerman (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower) as Noah's sons, Shem and Ham. We also have Anthony Hopkins (Thor) as his grandfather Methuselah and Emma Watson (The Bling Ring) as close friend and possible love interest of Booth's Shem.
The trailer also gives us our first look at Ray Winstone's barbaric opponent to Noah, as well as providing us an idea of the scale of the movie.
Noah is set to hit cinemas in the UK and the US on 28 March 2014. Better lay out the sandbags fast.
