That’s the best word to describe an undertaking to re-create such a classic story as big as Noah and his ark. But if anyone can make it work, it would be Russell Crowe. If Cecil B. deMille could realize a believable parting of the Red Sea in The Ten Commandments then why not try to portray an event where two of every animal gathers aboard an enormous boat? And George Clooney’s The Perfect Storm? That would be a breeze compared to a flood that ravages the Earth, destroying nearly everything across the planet.
Darren Aronofsky’s (Black Swan) Noah co-stars Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, and Ray Winstone.
Here is the first preview released for Noah:
