Watch: First Super Bowl TV Spot for Aronofsky's 'Noah' Debuts Early

"The storm cannot be stopped, but it can be survived." Paramount has decided to reveal the first big game Super Bowl TV spot early, debuting the 30 second ad for Darren Aronofsky's Noah that's showing this weekend. We've already seen a couple of trailers for this epic Aronofsky take on the biblical story of Noah's Ark, starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone and, yes, Emma Watson. This spot features a few new shots, including one of some angels floating down over Earth (wha?), plus some extra epic music to sell the Super Bowl audiences. This does look like it might be good, and I'm glad they're finally pushing this out there for everyone to see. The end? No. "The beginning of everything…"
Here's the new Super Bowl TV spot for Darren Aronofsky's Noah, direct from Paramount's YouTube:
Before the flood it rained for 40 day and 40 nights. Fore more updates on Aronofsky's Noah, follow their official twitter @NoahMovie and tweet with #TheFloodisComing for a chance to win tickets to sports events.
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.

Untold story? The Bible is like only the best selling book ever..

Yeah except this isn't exactly that story. Warner Bros are definitely downplaying the Aronofsky weirdness with this marketing.

Does not inspire great confidence. Overt, in-your-face, Melodrama. Where is the Aronofksy nuance, subtlety, and elegance?

Aronofsky is many things but subtle isn't one of them.

Still getting Tropic Thunder fake trailer vibes...

Not a good trailer at all. Especially when you have a million+ audience watching it.

I don't understand how this movie even got made. I mean, why? It is clearly pandering to the religious audience in a shameless cash-grab. Movie studios don't make movies "because this story needs to be told" they make movies because they will make money. It seems really exploitative to take a legend that is thousands of years old and has been repurposed by many religions over the years, and add a bunch of reasons for splashy VFX shots that have been added to make it at all interesting, and then selling it to people hoping it will rake in cash like The Passion of The Christ did years ago. If I were religious, I would be insulted.

Im a HUGE fan of Aronofsky, but... this looks like a mess, looks like one of those filsm made only for money and not passion? his older films, yes were made for money but you could tell that wasn't the main reason for it... I don't know, just doesn't feel like Aronofsky :(... I will give the film a try as a trailers are always twisted to gain more audiences... fingers crossed.
