Trailer for Biblical Adventure ‘Noah’ Premieres [VIDEO]
Biblical dramas, people! Biblical dramas. They're huge money-makers and I've been surprised that more haven't been made. The Passion of the Christ and The Ten Commandments were big box office smashes. And The History Channel's The Bible mini-series scored big ratings.
So, it comes as no surprise that someone, finally, has adapted the story of Noah and the flood--perhaps the Bible's most famous story--for the big screen.
That someone is writer/director Darren Aronofsky. Now, what's interesting here is that Aronofsky is more known for unusual independent films like Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, and The Wrestler. If you've seen any of those, then you're probably just as surprised as I am that he'd tackle a big-budget Hollywood epic.
But, maybe that's what increases the anticipation. What will a director with his eye do with this epic tale?
We'll find out when Noah, which stars Russell Crowe, hits theatres March 28th, 2014.
