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.

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]
