The Noah trailers (yes, more than one!) are now online!

Paramount may have spent the past few months showing a quasi-secret trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah to church conferences and the like, but until this week they had never released any footage from the film to the general public. That changed today, with the release of at least two official trailers, one designed for North American audiences and another designed for international audiences. I’ll post a more detailed analysis when I get a chance, but for now, you can watch both trailers below the jump. (And may I say, the shots of water shooting out of the ground — as per the verse that describes how “all the springs of the great deep burst forth” — ought to give the Red Sea parting in Ridley Scott’s Exodus a run for its money.)

Here is the North American trailer:

And here is the international trailer:

    May I offer just a small correction, Peter . . . you mention “the shots of water shooting out of the ground” and then tell us this is “as per the verse that describes how ‘all the springs of the great deep burst forth’.”

    But it seems to me “the ground” and “the great deep” are two different things. The great deep refers to ocean(s), so I suggest Aronofsky (if he wanted to be biblical at this point) should have depicted waterspouts shooting out of the ocean.

      That may be a more accurate reading of the text, sure. Though it’s my understanding that the ancient Hebrews believed there was water underneath the earth as well. See here for an example.
