New Poster for Aronofsky's 'Noah' + Kronos Quarter Scoring Session
We're now only two months away from the long-awaited release of Darren Aronofsky's new movie, Noah, starring Russell Crowe as Noah of the biblical Noah's Ark story. Yahoo has debuted another new IMAX poster for Noah, featuring Crowe standing tall as the rain falls around. And that's about it. At least he has a hatchet in his hand. Is that Biblically accurate? It doesn't really matter. In related news, Aronofsky has been working on recording the score for Noah with his long-time collaborator Clint Mansell. The two have been sharing photos on their respective Twitter accounts of the work going into this, including a shot of them collaborating again with the Kronos Quartet from The Fountain score. Just another latest update for now.
Up first, here's the new poster for Aronofsky's Noah, originally from Yahoo. This is being released in IMAX.
Here are photos as tweeted by Aronofsky showing them recording the score for Noah with Clint Mansell, also working with the Kronos Quartet, a group of musicians that worked on the score for Aronofsky's The Fountain and Requiem for a Dream. I'm anxious to hear how this score sounds once it all comes together.
