At long last, director Darren Aronofsky has revealed his biblical epic, Noah to the world. Premiering in Mexico City last night, Aronofsky along with several members of the cast (Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth and Jennifer Connelly) stopped by the Pepsi Centre to walk the red (well, it was actually blue) carpet and introduce their film.
Of course, full reviews are under embargo until release day, but several outlets (including We Got This Covered) were lucky enough to be in attendance at the premiere and now, a couple of reactions have hit the web.
You can check out a few select quotes below:

Noah is a divisive film (not from a religious perspective), akin to The Fountain, will have its fans & haters. Im in the former for both. — Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) March 11, 2014
Noah – Aronofsky’s take on biblical story is solid, with some amazing scenes + a focus on character above all. Loved most but not all of it. — Alex Billington (@firstshowing) March 11, 2014
Final NOAH thoughts: Aronofsky shows the whole history of the universe. Anthony Hopkins incinerates an army with a flaming sword.

#Noah is a complicated film, but strong overall. The studio seems lost, but they at least have a good product to figure out how to sell.

As you can see, the reactions are quite positive. It’s a good thing, too, as Noah is a film that has a lot of people on the fence right now. Having seen it, I can tell you that it will definitely divide people right down the middle and if nothing else, it will provide critics with a lot to talk about.
Unfortunately, we can’t say anything more as we’re under embargo, but be sure to stay tuned for our full review of Noah in the coming weeks. In the meantime, check out what people are saying on Twitter and let us know what you think. Does Aronofsky have another hit on his hands?
