Gone is the much-lampooned headline declaring the story of Noah's Ark as "the most remarkable event in our history;" instead proclaiming it as "more than you imagined." There are also a few more environmental nods in this version - something Aronofsky was drawn to as a central theme from the beginning.
"It's the end of the world and it’s the second most famous ship after the Titanic. So I’m not sure why any studio won’t want to make it,” Aronofsky told Slash Film
in 2008. “I think it’s really timely because it’s about environmental apocalypse which is the biggest theme, for me, right now for what’s going on on this planet. So I think it’s got these big, big themes that connect with us. Noah was the first environmentalist."
Check it out below. "Noah" arrives in theaters next March.
