Noah's Ark

"Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?" There's an interesting first look, or rather just a first peek, set photo straight from the film's cinematographer that is a must see. Oscar nominated DP Matthew Libatique (as @MattyLibatique via The Film Stage) tweeted this photo from the set of Darren Aronofsky's Noah earlier today (Tuesday). He only says: "Pre lighting on the holiest day of the year." We've seen a first look at Russell Crowe as Noah, but with this inside look at all the snakes and alligators, it's a hint at the more gritty, real version of this story we may be getting. I'm intrigued, can't wait to see more from it! View his photo below.

Darren Aronofsky's Noah

In Darren Aronofsky's take on the Biblical tale, Noah (Crowe) is a man who loves Earth and all of its animal inhabitants, but has become disillusioned with the way humans have treated their planet. Paramount/New Regency are behind the project, being produced by Aronofsky & Protozoa Pictures partner Scott Franklin with Mary Parent. Aronofsky & Ari Handel wrote the script, with a rewrite by John Logan. The cast includes Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins. At this moment, Paramount has Noah scheduled for release on March 28th, 2014 still a few years out. We'll continue to keep you updated.

why would anything that can survive in water need to be on the Ark?

Brad White on Sep 25, 2012

2

Because God will destroy everything, except the Ark.

Even fish?

Yes, even fish. I'm no scientist, but if something like that happened it would probably kill most (if not all) living organisms.

So Noah is gonna need salt & fresh water aquariums on the Ark...

I'm actually curious myself to see how they "solve" that in the film or if they show it at all.

Ballasts.

Fish evolved after the flood maybe? I dunno, we're dealing with a story based in magic here. Be more open minded

but no room on the arc for bacteria and plants? Also, good luck fitting all the whales on the arc.

Then wonder where'd he put the octopus ?

That is a lot of the snakes !!!

How much environmental damage could a pre-flood civilization do? Or is Atlantis Steam Punk Coal Burning Powered?

Brad White on Sep 25, 2012

13

Geothermal. Duh.

DAVIDPD on Sep 25, 2012

lol agreed. In the real story, God uses the flood to destroy everything because the world became extremely violent and corrupt...IMO that would've made a much more entertaining storyline....but I'm just excited to see another Aronofsky film on the way.

yes it would, since you'd have to paint a picture of a society that is on par with the Cenobites to justify the genocide.

Thanks a lot for saying it. Its just ridicolous: "Noah has become disillusioned with the way humans have treated their planet, so he asks a psycho-killer god to kill everybody and everything, and God says, "Why Not?"

That is a bigger boat.

March 2014?! That is a very long wait!

I find it entertaining that people are already debating the validity of the story because it's based on something written in the Bible; yet, the same questions are not presented for other films portraying events that are thought of to be true. I know, I know: it's because many believe it to be true and fashion their entire religious systems around it. That doesn't make this any less of a movie. It's a movie, being directed by an amazing director, who got writer John Logan to help write the script (Who's written some pretty good stuff mind you). I'm certain it will be entertaining and fascinating to watch the character dynamics whether you believe in Noah's arc or not. I say enjoy it. It's just a movie.

That's what you get when the readership is primarily men of science... :'(

Yuppers.

I thought it was 2 of each kind. That is a ton of snakes.

There a lot of snake species out there, I guess 🙂
