Anthony Hopkins' 'Methuselah' Graces Final NOAH Character Poster

Well, unless they're planning on giving the Ark one I guess. Empire have debuted the seventh character poster for Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic, featuring Thor: The Dark World's Anthony Hopkins as Noah's grandfather, Methuselah. Take a look after the jump.

NOAH is a close adaptation of the Biblical story of Noah’s Ark. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood. The screenplay was written by Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel and revised by Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter John Logan (GLADIATOR, HUGO). Scott Franklin and Aronofsky of Protozoa Pictures, along with Mary Parent of Disruption Entertainment, will produce the film. The film will be executive produced by Ari Handel (BLACK SWAN), Arnon Milchan of New Regency and Chris Brigham (INCEPTION, ARGO).

Noah is directed by Darren Aronofsky, and stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Ray Winstone, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth and Anthony Hopkins. It hits theaters March 28th, 2014.

Wish they would have made a Methuselah film instead.

Everyone already knows Noah's but few understand his Grandfather.

@BlackKnight careful you could loose your head talking like that. <--- GoT reference

Dumb story = Dumb Movie. Given the budget, what else could have been made with this talent & time?
ComradeGrey - 2/19/2014, 10:39 AM
He's way too young to play Methuselah.

For all those of you bringing the Christian faith into this, you realize the flood story predates Judeo-Christian religions, tracing its source back to Sumerian times, right?
hierarchy - 2/19/2014, 10:43 AM
Hey comrade...stop it your making too much sense. That will not be tolerated.
hierarchy - 2/19/2014, 10:46 AM
@ Gusto that was way to funny.

ODIN is JOR-EL'S grandad, the joker and robin went to high school together, and luthor and peter parker went to harvard together.

@commie gray

We all (belivers and non) are aware that flood legends existed before the bible as we have it was written

That is the furthest thing from the point.

"Doc savage" predates superman, and we don't kvetch about there being superman movies
(Well TRUDY and sackmode and reallyreamsboys and Mac and grid do buthey don't count as they don't have souls)
"The shadow" predates batman but we don't kvetch about batman movies being made (except see the above list of soulless asshats)
So an archetype of a story may have precursors but that doesn't mean we have to ignore a particular version
If aranofsky made a movie about utnapishtim or zisusudra no one would know what it is about
JorL5150 - 2/19/2014, 11:01 AM
We shouldn't be to hard on bravado -

It DID take him all day to put that 8 piece ELMO jigsaw puzzle together and then aranofsky came in and kicked his card table over.
Guess I'd be pissed too.

I like fleetwood Mac and rusted root

The biggest difference is Mac is very articulate and sophisticated whearas rusted root sounds fun and bouncy musically but the singer, while charming , is an inarticulate mushmouth neo hippy.

I am acquainted with a delightful middle age woman who is both openly gay and an ordained reverend

I might watch the movie with her
JorL5150 - 2/19/2014, 11:13 AM
Hey I heard that snake handler on tv just offed himself with a rattlesnake bite

That should please everyone.

@Bravado: Well those religious people better watch out. Soon we will be in the majority and (fingers crossed) we will be able to give them a taste of their own medicine...
ProfessorX - 2/19/2014, 11:22 AM
and by "medicine" I mean:


Religion is a plague and it is high time we rid the world of it.
ProfessorX - 2/19/2014, 11:31 AM
What is a "militant" atheist? Either you're an atheist or you're not (these namby-pamby individuals who say, "If that person is happy believing in fairy tales, why not let them" are not true atheists), and if you are then you should be behind any and all measures to rid the world of religion.

I'm glad gusto is here to bring some levity
JorL5150 - 2/19/2014, 11:44 AM
And by "levity" I mean......

JorL5150 - 2/19/2014, 11:45 AM
And brvado, no one is a douche bag quite like you
Nomis - 2/19/2014, 11:53 AM
@ Gusto - The angle in your arms this morning...going to be the Devil in someone bed tonight.

Dmon - 2/19/2014, 12:17 PM
@Bravado Oh yeah because people like BlackKnight42 don't sound militant at all. *rolls eyes*
MsDarkPhoenix - 2/19/2014, 12:20 PM
Shouldn't Gusto play Methuselah?? He was born to play that role!! Hollywood you are always casting the wrong people!
GodzillaKart - 2/19/2014, 12:30 PM
@BlackKnight42: Um...I'm an atheist, yet have no problem with people believing in angels, fairies, werewolves, whatever. (although I find it baffling)

My only problem is when they try to teach mythology in science classrooms or use their backwards beliefs to push restrictive laws on the rest of us.

Outside of that, they can believe whatever they want.

@SuperCat You rang?

@Gus: LOL! What is that de niro line from The Untouchables? "We laugh because it is funny, and we laugh because it is true".
Dmon - 2/19/2014, 12:46 PM
@Gusto I dislike Republicans and Democrats both are Statist tools.

ProfessorX - 2/19/2014, 12:46 PM
@zilla: The backward morality goes hand in hand with the belief. Saying you're happy with people believing whatever they want makes no sense because in fact it is the PARENTS indoctrinating children with THEIR beliefs which are regurgitated onto the next generation and thus the cycle continues. There is no free will involved. The only reason any person believes such nonsense is because the ideas were forced upon them as a child.

This is why I believe religion should be banned. It is child abuse pure and simple.
GodzillaKart - 2/19/2014, 12:47 PM
@BK: I don't disagree that that is why most people who have religious beliefs have them...I just find your conclusions a bit extreme.
ProfessorX - 2/19/2014, 12:50 PM
Extreme... or efficient? The quicker we purge the world of religion the more children will be saved.
GodzillaKart - 2/19/2014, 12:50 PM
@Dmon: Anyone who isn't an anarchist, is a statist to some degree. And Gus is right, although American politics is [frick]ed five ways to Sunday, it is the right who seems to have a problem with science these days.
GodzillaKart - 2/19/2014, 12:54 PM
@BK: Yeah...if there was a big red button, and if you pushed it, everyone would suddenly stop believing in gods of any would be a tempting moral conundrum.

However, not only does the kind of forced belief you are describing simply not work, it is totalitarianism and immoral.
ProfessorX - 2/19/2014, 1:08 PM
I'm not proposing people are forced to believe in anything. I'm proposing that religion is banned so that people are free from the constraints of believing. As rational people free from the talons of religion, I believe it is our duty to save all those who have been indoctrinated and continue to be indoctrinated all over the world.
GodzillaKart - 2/19/2014, 1:09 PM
@BK: Well, good luck with that.
Dmon - 2/19/2014, 1:10 PM
@Godzillafart The Right may have a problem with Science but the Left seems to have a problem with the Constitution these days. Both sides are guilty of pushing their believes on the others and witch hunts. There are extremes on both sides. Which is worse the worship of a made up being or the State?
Dmon - 2/19/2014, 1:11 PM
@BlackKnight42 It sounds like you are trying to create your own oppressive religion.
Joementum - 2/19/2014, 1:11 PM
Son "Dad, what's Republican?"
Dad "I don't know son, we unquestioningly perpetuate stereotypes pushed by political activists."
ProfessorX - 2/19/2014, 1:21 PM
@zilla: Support would be more use than luck, but clearly you are one of those namby-pamby atheists I mentioned who will sit back and watch whilst children are forced to do their hail marys, or have 'purity' rings shoved on their fingers, or are forced to cover their face with a burqa, or commit to jihad - all the while you sit their with a smug expression on your face saying people can "believe whatever they want".

You disgust me.
