The Darren Aronofsky directed movie has a budget of around $130m and an all-star cast so match that with what is a pretty big storyline and you can guess that expectations for the movie must be running high, not least amongst the Hollywood producers and financiers behind the movie.
Noah stars Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe in the title role and also has such other big names as Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connolly, Ray Winstone and Emma Watson in the cast.
The storyline it is no surprise is based on the tale of Noah and the Ark from the Old Testament so we are thinking that there are not going to be many shocks in the movie for most people. Having said that a movie is more about the quality of the production than just an original story, after all didn’t Titanic win 11 Academy Awards (tying Ben Hur for the most wins) and everyone knew that ship was going to sink didn’t they?
The movie trailer shows for the first time just how impressive the Ark looks and it looks like quite a bit of the huge budget for the movie has been spent on special effects and props.
You can see for yourself what the possible end of the world flood scenario might look like in the trailer below.
Noah is due for release on 28 March 2014.
