"Noah" is an upcoming film by acclaimed filmmaker Darren Arronofsky ("Requiem for a Dream", "Black Swan"), starring Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Kevin Durand, Martin Csokas, and Mark Margolis.

This film has made headlines because of it's huge budget, heavy reliance on special effects, and "troublesome" test screenings that caused a highly mixed reaction. The Hollywood Reporter reported in an article ( that Paramount, who is producing and distributing the film, has been worried about the final cut of the film due to three test screenings that received mixed results in New York (largely Jewish audience), Arizona (Christian), and "general public" movie goers in Orange County, California.

However, Arronofsky has final cut privilege and has been resistant to Paramount's "suggestions". This being a 125 million dollar epic, you could see why Paramount is nervous but I think Arronofsky has earned the right to make any kind of film he wants at any budget. The film comes out March 28, 2014.

Here are three very brief snippets of the trailer. Although one is only 18 seconds long and the other two are both seven seconds long you can get a sense of Arronofsky's grand sweeping style. This is surely a film that will be highly publicized the closer it comes to it's release date.
