Noah — the Japanese trailer is now online

Another day, another Noah trailer!

Today’s specimen comes from Japan and, while it’s mostly a 92-second remix of the other trailers that have come out over the last few weeks, it does feature a few new shots. Check ’em out below the jump.

A slightly different version of this sequence was used in the trailer that has been shown privately at various church conferences, but this marks the first time it has been used in one of the trailers released to the general public:

Apart from that, the trailer also gives us a new shot of ominous clouds with lightning flashes:
