I am not sure yet if director Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming Biblical epic Noah is going to appeal to certain sectors of the religious community that normally go to movies or not. I know that Warner Brothers is and has been actively courting that audience, but they also tried the same thing with their Superman film Man Of Steel, though the results aren’t very clear. (They accentuated the Christ imagery in the film, though I do remember Jesus snapping anyone’s neck in the Gospels.) Will this targeted audience embrace or reject Aronofsky’s expanded version of the Biblical tale. We’ll find out when the film opens on March 28th. In the meantime, here’s a new trailer for the film starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Emma Watson from Universal Pictures’ Swiss You Tube account (via Bleeding Cool).
