Noah director Darren Aronofsky just tweeted this morning that he has “watched and listened to the final mix” of the trailer for his film — and he asked his followers to “call/email your local theater and ask 4 it on #hungergames!” The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens November 22, which is less than two weeks away — so it looks like we won’t have to wait much longer to see some studio-approved footage of Aronofsky’s film, which opens four months from now on March 28. Incidentally, the church-conference trailer that leaked online a few weeks ago (and which I briefly mentioned in my post on “biblical accuracy”) is still viewable at Gawker. It will be interesting to see how the mainstream trailer compares to that other one; presumably it won’t have the worship song or the bit that refers to the Flood as “the most remarkable event in our history”, but who knows?
Is the Noah trailer almost here…?
