Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic Noah doesn’t hit theaters until Spring of 2014, but its filming in Iceland provided us with quite a few looks at the A-list cast in character. Today, we’ve got even better shots than we’ve seen before, with images highlighting Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins, and more.
These new images (which we’ve collected and put in a gallery for you at the bottom of the page) are in an aspect ratio usually reserved for posters, and honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if these same pictures will be hanging in your local theater sometime later this year. All the images are of poster quality and would make for great promotional pieces, especially the image of Russell Crowe as Noah.
In addition to Crowe, Watson, and Hopkins, the other actors featured in these images are Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone and Logan Lerman. That ensemble makes up the main cast, while Douglas Booth, Barry Sloane, Kevin Durand, Marton Csokas, Dakota Goyo, Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, Mark Margolis and Arnar Dan also star in the film.
This film seems like it is certainly going to be darker than your typical Sunday school story. It tells the tale of Noah, a man who loves Earth and its animal inhabitants, but has become disgusted with the way humans are treating the planet. There’s also word that part of the film focuses on the titular character’s alcoholic tendencies. Still, the film isn’t likely to go to the full depths of Aronofsky’s trademark dark style, as Paramount should want a PG-13 rating for this one in order to maximize the box-office return on such a big-budget project.
Noah hits theaters March 28, 2014. Are you excited to see it? Check out these new images below and then head down to the comments section to share your thoughts with us.
