New ‘Noah’ Trailer Introduced by a Quirky Emma Watson, Plus First Clip Debuts
Darren Aronofsky‘s ‘Noah‘ released a new trailer hosted by Emma Watson that plays up the film’s love story and gives a pretty epic look at the film. From all evidence it’s going to be a divisive movie, as the film just hosted its world premiere and got a mixed reaction.
The film, which stars Russell Crowe as Noah, has already made a point (as does this trailer) that’s it’s not meant to be a literal recreation of the events from the Bible, which is odd considering that most films about the Bible don’t worry about that. The recent modest hit ‘Son of God’ didn’t have to make any apologies about whatever liberties it may have taken with the text.
In addition to the new trailer, here’s the first clip from the film:
The movie premiered Monday night, and Devin Faraci from Badass Digest had this to say, which seems to sum up most of the early reviews:
I think NOAH is going to be one I end up defending a bunch. It's odd and it's flawed but it's ambitious and thoughtful in ways I loved.

He seems mostly positive, though word from The Hollywood Reporter was much more mixed, as everyone seems to have some issues with it, and a number of the people who were interviewed suggest the movie’s a little too slow. We’ll know for sure when the movie opens on March 28.
