About The Production
"Audiences can expect all the great moments of the Noah story...the Ark,
the animals, the Nephilim, the first rainbow, the dove. But hopefully they are
captured in new and unexpected ways. Instead of repeating what's been seen
before, we looked carefully at what is written in Genesis, and then created a
setting on screen where we felt these miracles could take place."
-- Darren Aronofsky
From the inspirational story of courage, sacrifice, hope and redemption,
Darren Aronofsky ("Black Swan," "The Wrestler," "The Fountain") brings to the
screen "Noah." Academy Award winner Russell Crowe portrays the man chosen by
God to undertake a momentous mission of rescue before an apocalyptic flood
destroys the world. Never before has the full story been brought to life on
screen in a vivid epic - inviting the audience to experience these spectacular
events through the eyes and emotions of Noah and his family, as they journey
through fear and faith, destruction and triumph, hardship and hope.
The production took the film's world-class cast and crew on their own
unexpected journey as they set out to intensively research Noah's world, honor
the text and board an authentic Ark, hand-built to biblically-detailed
specifications. In every aspect of the film's performances, action and
innovative special-effects, the creative team's aim was clear: to forge a
contemporary experience of "Noah" that is immediate, vibrant and personal. The
result is the first cinematic portrait of Noah as an imperfect man whose
awe-inspiring task grapples with the worst of humanity while affirming our faith
in its best.
