Russell Crowe is Ready for the Flood in the Final 'Noah' PosterDamon Houx |
One of this spring's biggest question marks is Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah,' which has Russell Crowe playing the titular hero, the biblical figure who saved his family and all the animals with his giant ark. Now the film has a final poster that suggests Noah is ready for action.
Here's the poster in full:
So, water and an axe-wielding Crowe? I guess that's an easier sell than animals marching up to the ark, and it's good that Jennifer Connelly and Emma Watson weren't given the floating head treatment. We're curious how the film will turn out as it isn't being released with the hype of Mel Gibson's 'The Passion of the Christ,' which became appointment viewing for many believers who might not normally go to the theater. Will that audience turn out? And how do you sell this film to an audience who might be adverse to seeing a story from the bible? Perhaps that's why they're selling it here as an action film.
It seems that other studios have sensed the film might not find an audience as the Arnold Schwarzenegger film 'Sabotage' is going to go head to head with 'Noah' on March 28. Still, this is Darren Aronofsky, and it should be fascinating -- if nothing else.
