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

A lengthy seven-minute featurette (via THR) goes behind the scenes and explores how screenwriter Ari Handel and Aronofsky approached the story of Noah, with religious experts also chiming in on the movie. "The story of Noah starts with this concept of strong justice, that the wickedness of man will soon be met with justice, and it ends when the rainbow comes and it says, even though the heart of man is filled with wickedness, I will never again destroy the world," Handel explains. "So it ends with this idea of mercy. So God somehow goes from this idea of judging the wickedness to mercy and grace. So we decided that was a powerful and emotional arc to go through, and we decided to give that arc to Noah."

But it won't just be God's wrath Noah will have to survive, but also more Earthly problems, such as the one presented by Ray Winstone in a new clip from the movie. Watch both below, "Noah" arrives on March 28th.

    Aronofsky should be reassured Noah existed and his sons and their descendants be traced through Chronicles in the Bible and archaeology to people and places today. Why are the 7 Noahide laws, for Jews and Gentiles alike, still the basis for law on earth? Is that part of your movie, Darren?

    After all. Where did Noah Live? How did Noah Build the Ark? What Happened After?” (4 min video) www .dailymotion. com/swf... . This depiction is accurate, logical and wise. It is so, and open source to the public.
