"Movies don't really build things like this anymore." While much of the talk about Noah after the film hits theaters will likely and pointlessly revolved around the film's accuracy to The Bible and various other religious qualms, some attention should be paid to its achievement in filmmaking. And one such impressive element is the constructions of the ark at the center of the film. The first featurette for Darren Aronofsky's epic focuses on how they made part of this giant ship a reality, taking one year to design and six months to build it. Visual effects complete the ark, but this practical set piece is awesome. Watch below!
Here's the first featurette from Darren Aronofsky's Noah from YouTube:

In Darren Aronofsky's take on the Biblical tale, Noah (Russell Crowe) suffers visions of an apocalyptic deluge, and takes measures to protect his family from the coming flood. Paramount/New Regency are behind the project, being produced by Aronofsky & Protozoa Pictures partner Scott Franklin with Mary Parent. Darren Aronofsky & Ari Handel wrote the script, with a revision by John Logan before production. The cast includes Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins. Paramount has Aronofsky's Noah scheduled to hit theaters everywhere starting March 28th this year. See the first trailers.

The fact that they're using specific details from the Bible shows this is a good sign and headed in the right direction. So far.
