First trailer for Darren Aronofsky's Noah gets biblical


Forty days and nights of action

I'm not the most religious person. I have my beliefs and other folks have theirs, but there's no reason that I can't enjoy a film depicting one of the more famous stories from the Bible, Noah's Ark. This first trailer for Darren Aronofsky's take on the story (starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, and Anthony Hopkins) looks surprisingly gorgeous.

It's such a refreshing change of pace to get actual landscapes and sets rather than overt CG backgrounds. Sure each piece of animal fur is meticulously crafted and the budget is bloated, but when it looks this good, it's hard to care about that stuff. As for the actual content, I reeeeally like the trailer up until folks starting attacking the ship.

If it stays a story about a man who believes in some unseen force that leaves hints about the apocalypse, Noah could be very interesting. Keep it from becoming a generic action movie.  Noah rains action into theaters March 28th next year. You can watch the international trailer for the film after the jump too!
