There is a lot of buzz around this movie already, as there has been rumors that Noah is over budget and the studio is nervous from test screenings. Regardless, Darren Aronofsky is an ambitious talent, so let’s not get our panties tied in a bunch here. Obviously, this is subject matter that is open to interpretation and no doubt will there be backlash to the validity to the story Aronofsky tells. We have to keep in mind this is a movie. It is an interpretation of a story and it will be told in an artistic fashion.
For me, Noah can’t come out soon enough. If it is anything like Aronofsky’s last two films – The Wrestler and Black Swan – it is sure to have representation on Oscar night.
Also, Russell Crowe’s hair/wig is amazing.
Noah is slated for release on March 28, 2014. Start building your ark.
