Watch: First Footage & Poster For Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah,' Test Screenings Still Underway

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.

It looks like the first trailer for the movie is right around the corner, as Entertainment Tonight has dropped a first look at the footage that will be coming in the spot. And unlike the bootleg trailer that floated a couple weeks ago, this is obviously much crisper and cleaner, and more effectively sells the epic scope of the endeavor by the simple fact that you can see what's going on. Interestingly, the movie is still being tinkered with even as the promo machine starts rolling with The Los Angeles Film Critics Association tweeting that another test screening went down last night. 

But it looks like cylinders are firing to hit the spring release date of March 28, 2014. Watch below and check out the first poster too. [Bleeding Cool/HeyUGuys]

    If it's a fraction as funny as 2012 this'll be the bad movie of the year

    First THE WOLVERINE's marketing campaign had the first "tweaser." Now this film has "teases of teases." I trust Aronofsky to fight the Fight to the end, so I can wait for a full trailer in the theaters.

    But please tell me that tagline on the poster is also just a mock-up. I mean, didn't every Roland Emmerich movie have the same line?

    For everyday since early 2008, Ive been following your blogspot and then on indiewire.

    First you sell out to a corporate, thus slowly one by one taking away that journalistic integrity you had. You start forgetting what made you successful in the first place.

    Now you start writing posts according to the studios.
    Sad, Kevin, it's sad.

    Gabe: you guys often get basic facts wrong. There are often spelling mistakes in your articles. You frequently misuse grammar. Stones. Glass houses.

    This is hilarious. The studio asked for this? LOL.
