Finally, new images from Darren Aronofsky’s Noah!
We’ve seen a few behind-the-scenes shots already — images of the Ark and pictures of the crew tweeted by the director and his cinematographer, plus any number of unofficial shots of actors wandering around in costume — but until now, there has been almost nothing in the way of images released by the studio. Indeed, I can think of only one: a photo of Russell Crowe in character that was released ten months ago.
But now, with the big-budgeted movie’s release only nine months away — it’s due to come out March 28 next year — Paramount Pictures is finally beginning to roll out some more publicity materials, starting with some footage that was shown at CineEurope in Barcelona yesterday.
I have not been able to find any description of what, exactly, was in that footage, but presumably it can’t be that long before a trailer is released to the public, right?
In the meantime, the Spanish website Fotogramas has posted some new pictures featuring five of the movie’s principal characters: Noah himself, his wife Naamah (Jennifer Connelly), his grandfather Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins), his son Ham (Logan Lerman) and the mysterious character Ila (Emma Watson).
Update: Whoops, I missed one. Fotogramas also has a picture of Tubal-Cain (Ray Winstone), who has been variously described as Noah’s brother-in-law and as his “nemesis”. And note: this is the only picture released today that features actual rain:
