Lemme see here.....
Actors that don't look remotely Hebrew, hmmmm....

Aronofsky is a terrific filmmaker, but this is one of the most underwhelming trailers of recent memory.

How in the heck did all these great actors keep a straight face for that? That trailer really looks likes some sort of spoof. This is going to be 2014's Lone Ranger.

Something like this begs to be watched in IMAX. Problem is, I'm not much compelled to go see it. For one, it's another retread and two, it has Russell Crowe...

Weird that Darren Aronofsky would direct a sequel to a crappy Roland Emmerich movie. This is "2012... B.C.", right?

OR going for Cecil B. DeMille. Bad trailers don't make bad movies and that's about all there is to go on. Despite the religious aspect, and the coolness to hate it, the story/myth is still cool and could be fun to watch and no more loony than The Avengers or any Disney song and dance.

The trailer touched on something Sunday School glosses over and that's the "fact" that other people had to line up and be told by Noah "No, you can't get on my boat."

What Noah tells Gonzo in Muppets from Space is hilarious. And yeah, people always try to get in only after it's too late.

I won't judge by the trailer but I am hopeful that it will be a good and accurate portrayal.

Alternatively, Bill Cosby's spot has always been a classic! One of his best ever!

I actually think it's a decent trailer, but having studied the good book and specifically Noah and what happened after the floor I am disappointed (but not surprised) to see they have completely ignored the accepted belief that Noah's sons all were married to women of different races. Not to mention his son, Ham, was of a different mother vs his other two sons and naturally a different race. Nor was Noah's wife of the same race.

So I guess all of that is just too complicated and uncomfortable deal with, so let's make 'em all white. Oh well.

Early buzz is bad, but you never know if that is due to crap being shoveled out by rival studios.

Guys, keep your personal religious beliefs off of AVS. If you're not specifically discussing the film, move along. Remember to be respectful of others.

Weird how my post about biblical films was yanked and neither professed or denied any belief for myself or anyone. It was merely a chronological list of movies highlighting when the big epic bible stuff was being done. Surely didn't intend any offense.

Agreed. I actually think it has potential given the cast. Crowe almost stole the show in MOS and I think he could really deliver in this role. Most important thing to me is to keep it relatively close to the true story, if that can be done wile delivering solid performances I can accept the subpar CG.

Religious or not, the trailer looks kinda horrible. I love the people involved, but it doesn't look too good. I'm hoping it's epic and awesome, but I'm doubting it.

I LOVE MOVIES!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a true story? Or do you mean a story true to its source?

What impressed me about the trailer was how nothing changed from before the flood to our world after the flood. A missed opportunity to be sure.

I had a similar thought, but didn't want to go there, and I took it to mean preserving the story as it is true to its source.

I really do hope this movie is a good one.

The trailer played in IMAX at Catching Fire/HungerGames a couple weeks ago when we say that on opening night in IMAX. The trailer looked good. Both my wife and mother both exclaimed they wanted to see it. (NOAH)

I don´t know why, whatching this trailer regards me of the "2012" movie...rolleyes.gif It seems to be a mix of a " catastrophe-movie" and "epic action", as the movie would be based on a Aronofsky´s own Comic and not literaly on the biblical story...

Still, as some of you mentioned, I also do not expect much of it.

Well, the first reviews from the religious leaders are in from private screenings and.... it looks like most of them hate it. Shocking, eh? tongue.gif

Muslims hate it because the story of Moses is mentioned in the Koran "and therefore not suitable for artistic depiction". One Egyptian cleric has already targeted it with a fatwa. Aronofsky better hire a bodyguard.

One conservative Christian organization, the National Religious Broadcasters, threatened to boycott the film unless Paramount put out a marketing disclaimer. Without telling Aronofsky, the studio decided to modify advertising materials by saying the movie was "inspired by" the story of Noah rather than be seen as literal scripture.

The handful of religious critics who saw the film before Monday's premiere have singled out several of the film's creations for particular condemnation. Jerry Johnson, the president of the NRB, said in part he was put off by a "Noah" montage suggesting that evolution and creationism are not mutually exclusive and that Noah wasn't "righteous" enough.

Like other early naysayers, Johnson was also bothered by the film's suggestion that stewardship of the earth - Noah and his family are vegetarians, and the antediluvian planet (the film shot in barren landscapes in Iceland) has been ravaged by misuse - is somehow inconsistent with the Bible and is thus "phony."

So it looks like the biggest audience for this film is going to be.... atheists! biggrin.gif
