After a whole bunch of behind the scenes drama between Darren Aronofksy and Paramount, it’s finally been settled that we’ll be getting Aronofsky’s own cut of biblical epic Noah, if for no other reason than that was the version that tested the highest with preview audiences. Go figure.
Now, the first scene from the film has been released, featuring Russell Crowe’s titular bearded figure telling his wife (Jennifer Connolly) and young children that they have to save the innocents – aka animals – in the face of am impending storm.
Now, remember, just because you see this happen in the movie, doesn’t mean it actually did in the Bible. Paramount want to be very clear about this.
