Russell Crowe Looks Ready For Battle On New NOAH Poster

Russell Crowe Looks Ready For Battle On New NOAH Poster

I might think twice before taking a place on the Ark with this fella! Yahoo! have just revealed a brand new one-sheet for Darren Aronofsky's upcoming biblical epic, and it features a very dark, intense, hatchet-wielding Russell Crowe as the titular character. Check it out 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.

Kinda on the fence with this one. MIGHT see it.
Priest - 1/28/2014, 3:25 PM
I wasn't aware that the biblical Noah was a badass with a hatchet. Well, it's bible stuff, so it's all up for interpretation.
Invictor - 1/28/2014, 3:28 PM

I think I see what you did there:

Priest - 1/28/2014, 3:29 PM
Next thing you know, they'll make a movie of Jesus fighting the Olympian gods.

Invictor - 1/28/2014, 3:29 PM
I'm looking forward to this film.
WillyGsus - 1/28/2014, 3:31 PM
The trailer looked pretty sweet. I will go see it.
Reasonnnn - 1/28/2014, 3:33 PM
My name is Noah, and I will have my vengeance.
GhostBoy - 1/28/2014, 3:34 PM
Hopefully we get another trailer soon.
Supes17 - 1/28/2014, 3:46 PM
Here we go with another damn religious debate.
Give it a rest. Its a [frick]ing movie
Lancer1 - 1/28/2014, 3:47 PM
Bad @ss ...can't wait to see this movie the trailer was cool
yonny616 - 1/28/2014, 3:55 PM
@Priest I actually wrote a story like that for creative writing in High School. xD The Greek and Norse gods vs an invading Hebrew god. lol My imagination sometimes runs wild.
ALmazing - 1/28/2014, 3:56 PM
Noah looks more like a Norse god than a biblical figure.
GliderMan - 1/28/2014, 3:56 PM
Blasphemic movie
SuperPickle - 1/28/2014, 4:09 PM
This movie looks dumb as hell. Of course it'll clean up at the box office because of all the retards who believe it to be a true story. lol
TheWolverine08 - 1/28/2014, 4:12 PM
Crowe was dope in Gladiator. Still love that movie.
Greengo - 1/28/2014, 4:13 PM
That should state that this movie was "BASED on a true story" like Lone Survivor.
write33 - 1/28/2014, 4:14 PM
so Noah.......murders the flood? jesus. that's quite the poster...
SuperPickle - 1/28/2014, 4:19 PM
Uhhhh, no. Study that a little more. That stone doesn't prove or verify any degree of truth to the story, despite what FoxNews wants you to think. It's just believed to be the "blueprints" for the ark. If every ancient scribbling is true, then Thor, Loki, Ishtar, Kali, Zeus, Apollo, Shiva, Ganesh, and Quetzalcoatl are all real too.

There's no way in heaven or hell that the entire world ever flooded. If so, where did the water come from and where did it go?


This story isn't based on any true story. If anything, the tag line should say "Ripped off from a Babylonian story that predates the Bible by a thousand years"
MightyZeus - 1/28/2014, 4:19 PM
Looks like the cover to a comic book.
I am looking forward to this film.
Greengo - 1/28/2014, 4:21 PM
Everyone tries to interpret the story of Noah's Ark literally, if you do that of course it's not feasible.

It needs context. If your entire world encompassed Mesopotamia and you that's all you knew, and all you knew flooded, it would be understandable for primitive man to interpret that area as everything - the "World."

Because to them, it is.
TheWolverine08 - 1/28/2014, 4:22 PM
LOL, I forgot how every article about this movie turns into a religious debate. I'm out!
Greengo - 1/28/2014, 4:22 PM
Lol wtf does Fox News have to do with this lololololol.

F.ucking moron.

Did MSNBC tell you to say that Pickle?

Lmao dipshit.

This isn't politics it's religion. I know MSNBC likes to confuse the two.
mash86 - 1/28/2014, 4:23 PM
Finally a poster where the main character is facing the right way!
GodzillaKart - 1/28/2014, 4:23 PM
@Priest: Holy crap! Where is that comic of Jesus fighting Zeus from?!
Greengo - 1/28/2014, 4:23 PM
In many cultures and religions they have the same story.

It's not unique to Christianity.
TheAmazingSpiderMan47 - 1/28/2014, 4:25 PM

how about the question of the universe coming into existence
Greengo - 1/28/2014, 4:25 PM
And my "Based on a true story" comment was tongue-in-cheek.

Sorry I didn't know I had to use a *sarcasm* disclaimer with every sarcastic comment.

GodzillaKart - 1/28/2014, 4:26 PM
It seems like everyone here is complaining about how the thread is turning into a religious debate...yet nobody holding a literal view of the bible has said a thing.
GodzillaKart - 1/28/2014, 4:27 PM
@TheAmazingSpiderMan47: Nobody know for sure...but perhaps it was ALWAYS here...going through a cycle of "big bangs" and "big crunches".

That always seemed the most logical hypothesis to me.
Supes17 - 1/28/2014, 4:32 PM
Can't wait for the next big crunch :)
Greengo - 1/28/2014, 4:32 PM
Despite the devout atheists trying to spoil the fun:

I look forward to this movie.

There's a lot of talent in it's midst.

And the trailer looked amazing.

It's sad some people can't enjoy this movie for what it is.

There are going to be a lot of offended people either way, be they the followers of Atheism, Christianity, or Judaism.

I love it when everyone is equally offended.
SuperPickle - 1/28/2014, 4:32 PM
Actually, the only article I read about it was from Fox and it was blatantly trying desperately to infer that it proved the Ark story, even though the quotes from the chief archaeologist obviously went very much against it. He referred to the discovery as nothing more than a deeper exploration of the specifics of a story in The Epic of Gilgamesh. The global flood story predates the Bible many times over and in several civilizations local to the Middle East.

There are also accounts of massive flooding around the ancient world, but not during the same time frame. And Greengo, you're absolutely correct. If people's entire world encompassed a few thousand square miles, it would seem like a global flood.

Thing is, WAY too many idiots interpret it literally and believe that the entire Earth was covered in flood waters. Those are the people who are going to make this movie a box office smash.

And, even though I'm a dick, I'm not a [frick]ing moron. :)
Greengo - 1/28/2014, 4:33 PM
@GodzillaFart: Is that you in your avatar?

That's what I always pictured you looked like

Greengo - 1/28/2014, 4:36 PM
Ok Pickle great response. I apologize for the name calling - but that Fox News line is burnt out liberal "insult."

I think we agree on the basics ; )
Greengo - 1/28/2014, 4:36 PM
@Bravado: Can't wait! lol
Maximillion - 1/28/2014, 4:44 PM
So everything came from nothing!! WOW, Incredible!! O+0=1,00000,000...WOW!!..OK, It must have been the aliens that seeded the planets primordial goo!!..Oh, I see what you did there!!
SuperPickle - 1/28/2014, 4:56 PM
@Greengo, I agree. Dropping the "Fox News must've told you that" is indeed a burnt out liberal insult. Didn't exactly mean it like that. Just that the only place I saw that story was from them. It was on Facebook and the person who posted it is a die hard fundamentalist who was getting all wet and squishy and echoing the Fox headline saying it was proof the book of Genesis was entirely true.

I'm pretty sure we can bet that there was a massive flood in that area around that time and no doubt the local folklore carried it over. Bear in mind most people back then were illiterate and scientifically and geographically ignorant. The story was passed on orally and eventually made it into Babylonian myth, where it was later picked up and repeated by those who wrote it down for the Bible. The Central American tribes also had a similar story but it was much later.

The story makes for a great parable. It's very symbolic and has a powerful message. But the literal Biblical account of global destruction by flood waters is obviously fiction. It's too bad so many modern Christians see it as literal truth.

And at any rate, this movie looks about as entertaining as the last Transformers flick. And I'm already shaking my head about the hordes of people at the theater will be these people:

JorL5150 - 1/28/2014, 4:56 PM

Agreed 100%
ComradeGrey - 1/28/2014, 5:02 PM
You guys realize the Ark and flood story predates the bible and has its origins in the earliest myths of man right? The bible is just a riff on all the religions that came before it, just as this is a riff on the story as it has been told and retold down the line. Aronofsky just chose iteration with Noah because more people will recognize it.
SuperPickle - 1/28/2014, 5:02 PM
As far as where everything "came from", no it didn't come from nothing. No current theory posits that to be the case. Study the big bang and maybe even string theory if you're that curious.

Other than that, I'm no science teacher, so I lack the skills to instruct you on it. But I can tell you how and where to find out for yourself. Just Google "string theory origin of universe" or "big bang origin of universe" and get ready to do some serious reading.

I'm just an artist. A tattoo artist at that. I leave science instruction to those who have the proper credentials. And if you're not even willing to read a little bit to find out the origins of the [frick]ing universe, then you're not worthy of the real answer.
