Point Break Ray Winstone
"I've been lucky to work on a lot of films that I consider good scripts, me personally. I've also worked on films that I've had to do because I've had to pay the rent," Ray Winstone recently told The Belfast Telegraph. "But that's part of the game and then you work on them and try and make them better films, with help from the director and the people you're working with. But it doesn't always work out that way." So we'll see where his next gig ends up on his list: paying rent or good script.

Noah, Russell Crowe
Only a few pages long and with the barest of details, the Genesis tale of Noah’s Ark is one the original peaks of brevity. A succinct story of an apocalypse and its aftermath, one can easily see why the themes of death and rebirth attracted Darren Aronofsky to a film adaptation. But “Noah” is no mere second attempt at “The Fountain." It is instead a grounded journey outwards on ideas of regret, mercy, and revenge, and at 139 minutes the film makes every attempt, coherent or not, to thoroughly address each one.

Noah, Russell Crowe,
It might not be the size of the ark, but Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" is his biggest undertaking to date, a big-budget studio movie telling the story of the man who rode out the destruction of humanity of God's command. And that sounds like a darker way to summarize the story of Noah's ark, that's just the starting point on this take of the Bible story, which is rolling into theatres soon and already proving somewhat divisive.

As Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" prepares to ride the multiplex seas in a few short weeks, Paramount is still figuring out how to market the movie, in particular to religious groups. They want the all important Christian audiences to spend their money on the Biblical tale, but they also don't want to offend them with Aronofsky's take that doesn't stick to the scrubbed clean Sunday School version. And all of this has to led to rather curious amendment to the trailers for the the upcoming movie.

Noah, Aronofsky
When it rains, it pours, except if you're "Noah" when rain means the imminent destruction of the planet, and that your only hope for survival is an ark you built yourself and populated with a pair of every animal on Earth. Was "Noah" the first hoarding story?

Though he’s never been a superstar, after four decades of making music there is no question that Nick Cave is a legend. Singer, songwriter and occasional composer, Cave has been playing in bands since he was in his teens, from his post-punk group The Birthday Party, to his back-to-basics side project Grinderman, to his solo work to his band for over 30 years, The Bad Seeds. Though his music has only ever crossed over into the mainstream a few times (the soundtrack staple “Red Right Hand” and Kylie Minogue duet “Where The Wild Roses Grow”), he has nevertheless amassed an army of dedicated fans all over the world. The new documentary “20,000 Days On Earth” is neither the career retrospective or concert film you might, but rather a snapshot of the musician, now 57, still trying to connect with his muse.

Noah, trailer
"In the Bible the story is only a couple of pages, and the perception we have of it in the West is more as a children’s toy—an old man with a long beard and animals two by two on the boat. And there’s so much more to the story than that…there’s a lot of clues there about what the story means. So it was about trying to create a world where the story of Noah could be truthful and could take place, and make it something that could connect to a modern audience," director Darren Aronofsky told us last year, just two weeks after he had wrapped filming. With the time since spent working on the extensive special effects and whatever issues might be happening behind-the-scenes, reportedly battling the studio over final cut (it's still test screening), it looks like everyone involved is satisfied that all will be resolved as the first trailer has washed ashore.

Have you ever wanted to hang out with eternal badass Nick Cave? Well, frankly, who wouldn't? But most of us won't ever get the chance to sit down and break bread with the musician/writer/raconteur, so this project may just be the next best thing. It turns out Cave has been hard at work on a secretive docu-drama entitled "20,000 Days On Earth," and the first details of the project are now coming to light.

A flood is coming, but not to worry, because Darren Aronofsky is building the boat, cinematically speaking. Next spring, the director brings his snake-filled, crazy demon angel version of "Noah" to the big screen, and now a few more images have arrived to hold us over, as we buy supplies for the trip.
