Two New Hi-Res NOAH Stills

Two New Hi-Res NOAH Stills

A couple of nice new snaps from Darren Aronofsky's upcoming biblical adventure have been released, giving us a shot of the under-construction ark, and also Noah himself (Russell Crowe) comforting his wife (Jennifer Connolly). 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.

Looks like this role will suit him better than [frick]ing Robin Hood...Oliver Stone sucks.

Well, movies about fairy tales are popular...
TheStranger - 12/19/2013, 5:40 PM
Oh Priest, if you wanted attention, all you had to do was say so. lol
Priest - 12/19/2013, 5:50 PM
Of course, if you say that the great flood story is a fairy tale, you are obviously looking for attention. I forgot that comments that don't comply with religious dogma are forbidden.

An interesting read that someone shared today...
Priest - 12/19/2013, 6:36 PM
@ Ranger14,

Even if that was really Noah's ark (which I highly doubt), I am pretty sure that it's not big enough to hold 2 or more members of every species of animal that roams the Earth. The article says that the distance from bow to stern was 515 feet. Not big enough, that's just a fraction of the size of an aircraft carrier or a battleship.
Ranger14 - 12/19/2013, 7:12 PM
Priest@ There's research out there that suggests there would have been plenty of room. It's whether one chooses to believe the research or not. There's room for interpretation as to what is considered a "kind" of land roaming animal. Were they full grown or not? Lots of grey area involved.
Priest - 12/19/2013, 10:01 PM
Right, just mammals alone, there's 5,488 known species. Then let's add 9,766 reptile species, 925,000 insect species, and 18,937 bird species. Then let's add the food for all those animals that will last 40 days and nights. One single elephant eats half a ton of vegetation a day. That's 20 tons of vegetation just for 1 elephant.

All of that in a boat that's just 515 feet long. Yeah, it's a fairy tale.

Besides that, it is a biological impossibility with most vertebrate animals to properly repopulate the species with just 2 animals to begin with. There's just not enough genetic diversity.

It's not a matter of belief, it's a matter of facts.

^You're trying to convince a believer with facts? Shame on you. >;)
savageguitarist - 12/19/2013, 11:20 PM
you have to distort reality to justify the bible fairy tales. and people who believe the stories in that sci fi book usually are not very good with facts.. or math.. or science.
Luminus - 12/20/2013, 4:08 AM
Thank Zeus for all those miracles! It's amazing how Zeus defies what our simplistic minds comprehend as "logical." Praise Zeus for all the miracles and awesome things he did in the Iliad!

come on guys, religion isn't COMPLETELY useless. i mean without religion we wouldn't have spawn or hellblazer.
Priest - 12/20/2013, 6:43 AM
@ BenisBatman,

Do you also believe in unicorns and leprechauns?
AlternateNo4 - 12/20/2013, 6:58 AM
@priest well, unicorns are mentioned in the bible so i bet he does lol
leftcoastpunk - 12/20/2013, 1:09 PM
hey everyone look at me...i dont believe in the bible so i'm gonna make it a point every [frick]ing time to say that im smarter and cooler than all of you that do!
[frick], the whole routine is getting tired. Seriously... you pick on a community of people who's core value is to love your fellow man? What the [frick] is wrong with some of you.
Priest - 12/20/2013, 3:19 PM
@ leftcoastpunk,

That would be "love your fellow man*, unless he's gay, from another religion or basically doesn't think like I do".

Yeah, you can say that Jesus didn't preached hatred and we could agree the mythological person known as Jesus has a mostly benevolent message. But dude, his followers, the religions that where made in his name, they are full of haters and bigots. The bible itself got some really disturbing stuff...not just the hatred towards gays, but the bible also condones slavery and rape. If you don't believe me, I'll be more than happy to show you the passages, and no, they are not being taken out of context. The bible is full of bigotry, hate, misogyny and violence. All in the name of god.

So you ask me what's "wrong" with me? I'll tell you what's "wrong": I, as a thinking person, can't follow in good conscience any religion or belief that promotes hate, bigotry or violence. Also, as a thinking individual, I need evidence for extraordinary claims. Just telling me that there's a guy in the sky that watches everything I do is just not going to cut it. Why would I believe your fairy tale and then have the hubris to say that all the other fairy tales are wrong?

Basically, what's "wrong" with me is that I can think for myself and I question authority.
leftcoastpunk - 12/20/2013, 4:35 PM
@ priest - how many people of faith have you talked with that say they condone rape and slavery? I'm not counting those in the vocal minority like the westboro tax exempt law firm, or the ones with no teeth that screw their cousins. I mean those that actually contribute to society.

The issue of excepting gay people is the latest hurdle right now, and the church as a whole has progressed quite a bit on that recently. My thought is that in the next generation or two it won't be an issue at all.

All that being completely missed my point. This comment section didn't even segue into the "bible sucks/no it doesn't" realm yet. You just decided to throw out the "its a fairy tale you know, huh huh, me smarter". What anyone believes in or doesnt is up to them, believe as you will, but a lot of people use faith for a lot of possitive things...turning their life around, kicking an addiction, and you just wanna chime in with the old you believe in fake shit routine. i know thats big picture stuff, but whats the need to put someone down on something as sensitive as faith with out any provocation.

Besides, THIS movie, the one the article is actually about, is about a guy that builds a more benign can you get?
Priest - 12/20/2013, 5:10 PM
@ leftcoastpunk,

You are assuming things. For example, you assume to know the motive behind my comments. I commented just to write what I thought about Noah. Are you going to tell me that non-believers can't say what they think about a religious figure?

It's not about thinking that I am smarter than others, it was just expressing my point of view. If my lack of belief offends anyone, well, too bad. I am not going to keep quiet about what I think.

Not many people nowadays condone rape and slavery...but if according to christian dogma, the bible is the word of god, and the bible condones such things, then why in the world would people worship a god that condones such things?!

If you don't believe me, please read:

"However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. (Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)"

Oh, but that's the old testament, it doesn't really count unless we are talking about gays, right? But wait! Here's a passage from the new testament!:

"Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)"

"Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them. (1 Timothy 6:1-2 NLT"

If you are a christian, you must believe the bible is the word of god. You can't pick and choose what to believe of the bible. That would be against christian dogma and heresy.

And that's just about slavery, there's plenty more horrible stuff in the bible.

And regarding Noah, it's a fairy tale that some people think it's fact. It's absurd and it makes them think in a way that's anti-science and progress.
leftcoastpunk - 12/20/2013, 6:50 PM
What do you mean your not going to keep quiet...nobody asked you, or did any sort of preaching before you typed what you thought was clever.

I grew up in a christian environment. I wasn't beat over the head with anything, it was just around. As I got older I kept the positive things about it, the family values, charity, and all around don't treat people like shit.
And rejected all the other narcissistic pains in the ass I noticed. By your logic I'm not allowed to think for myself about how to make the world around me better, based on the positives of the bible, because there's just to much negative in there. Ya I pick and choose, the bible was written by men, and a lot of them, could an asshole sneak his own agenda in there somewhere...i dont know, i wasnt there.

again not my point...this isn't a marvel/dc thing, this is a topic people feel strongly about on a very personal level. If a movie was being made about Joseph Smith being told about the golden tablets, or Muhammad's journey and ascension into heaven, I'm not going to butt in and express how I think its nonsense. Why would I? So I can laugh behind my screen and see how many I can piss off on a spiritual level?

So.........there's going to be rain in this movie?
