'Noah' Trailer Does More Than Tread Water

Noah

Feast thine eyes, sinners! Shortly after surfacing via some sneaky theatergoer's hand-held pirate video, the official trailer for Darren Aronofsky's Noah is here in all its HD glory.

If you watched the bootleg version before it was scrubbed off the web, you know what to expect -- this is Aronofsky in epic mode, starring Russell Crowe as the titular Biblical prophet and Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, and Jennifer Connelly as members of his ark-bound clan. Yea verily, many portentous-sounding lines of dialogue hath been spoken during this 145-second clip, and lo, the Lord hath bestowed upon us more CGI animals than any seen since Evan Almighty.

There's definitely room for seeing this as the first few drops of silliness in a monsoon of unintentional hilarity, but on the other hand, it's quite clear that Noah will try very hard to be the sort of movie that sweeps you up and carries you away -- and with a cast stocked with Oscar winners, it seems like a good bet that Aronofsky will manage to make a pretty good run at the grand, sweeping vision he's aiming for here. Take a look below, and mark your calendars for Noah's theatrical debut on March 28, 2014.
