So, you're sitting back watching the Big Game this Sunday, regretting how many nachos you've consumed and wondering when the Red Hot Chili Peppers are gonna finish, when at the commercial break some bearded dude is yelling and there's a lot of water. Don't be alarmed, it's the Super Bowl spot for "Noah."

Kronos Quartet
Despite the likes of Trent Reznor and Arcade Fire getting into the film scoring game, many film composers are often classically trained and more than a few have migrated from the contemporary/modern classical field. One of the most famous working in that field is Kronos Quartet and while they haven’t performed or composed a soundtrack in quite some time, it appears that they’ve heard the siren call of the silver screen.

The waters will rise, and God will unleash his furious vengeance next spring....at least at a multiplex near you. Darren Aronofsky is bringing "Noah" to the big screen and numerous (slightly varying) international trailers have surfaced in the past few weeks. And today, a few more images have washed ashore for the Biblical epic.

Noah trailer
While variations of the Noah myth can be found in a handful of faiths, we'd reckon that over in Japan it might not be as familiar as it might be in the West. But no matter, a movie about the end of the world is still a movie about the end of the world, and the waters still rise in this new international spot for "Noah."

The Pilgrims might have sailed over on the Mayflower, but that was nothing to compared to what Noah went through (if you really believe the Earth was flooded and a man, his family and a lot animals rode it out on an ark). Whether real or metaphor, the story is tailor-made for spectacle and Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" will attempt to tell it next spring.

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.

The last time we talked about Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic "Noah," the conversation was all about the battle that was/is going on behind the scenes over the final cut. The issues seem to surround the third act, with it being described as "a major challenge" and the studio worried about the reception from Christian audiences after a series of test screenings. And unlike the brouhaha surrounding "World War Z," Paramount and the filmmaker have both remained mum about whatever troubles are going on this time around. Why? Well, there's a $125 million movie to market.

Noah Darren Aronofsky
Darren Aronofsky is pushing himself in more ways than one with "Noah." It's his first big budget studio film ("The Fountain" for Fox cost a mere $35 million). And it's certainly the grandest production he's ever put together and arguably the most ambitious project of his career. With a $125 million price tag, the film is a fantastical retelling of the Biblical story, one that doesn't adhere to the story you were told in Sunday School, and has what has recently been described as the most complicated shot in the history of Industry Light & Magic, the company working on the extensive visual effects. And it seems Paramount is now getting nervous.

Noah Darren Aronofsky
With a spring release date slated, Darren Aronofsky's fantastical take on the Biblical story of "Noah" still remains intriguingly under wraps. Aside from some select early stills, not much has been shown from the movie yet, unless you were lucky enough to be in the faith-based audience that got a special preview a couple months back. But the director is beginning to open up about the film, and he's promising a visual feast, and likely the most digital effects he's ever used on a picture. Starting with the animals, all of which were digitally rendered, albeit with a twist.
