Russell Crowe stands tall in the first 'Noah' poster, released ahead of the soon-to-be-dropped trailer. Though we've been keeping tabs on Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic for some time now, this new look at the film -- much like the story's events -- does not seem like a vision of good things to come.

Russell Crowe stars in the title role alongside Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone and Jennifer Connelly. Paramount has been circulating a version of the 'Noah' trailer around religious conferences and will soon release it to the public, but this teaser poster makes the film look more like a spinoff of 'Jack the Giant Slayer' than a Bible story.

From Paramount's official description:

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 Aronofsky and Ari Handel and revised by Academy Award®-nominated screenwriter John Logan (GLADIATOR, HUGO).

Aronofsky has reportedly been feuding with Paramount over which cut of the film will be the one screened in theaters, which makes us worry we might not get to see the 'Black Swan' director's original vision for 'Noah.' But before we make our final judgement, take a look at the first poster below, as well as a preview of the trailer coming soon.

'Noah' will hit theaters March 28, 2014.
