New Noah poster released two months before film’s release

Today is January 28. In exactly two months, on March 28, Darren Aronofsky’s Noah will finally be out in theatres. And so, today, the studio finally released a poster for exhibition in North American theatres.

The poster — a bigger version of which appears below the jump — comes courtesy of Yahoo! Movies, and it shows Noah wielding an axe in a way that suggests he isn’t just using it to chop down trees for his Ark.

An earlier poster, which was apparently intended for foreign audiences only, showed Noah from behind, wielding a spear. It also gave us a much better view of the global devastation caused by the Flood.

Yahoo! Movies says there will also be a new TV spot for the film this week, and that it will appear online before it airs during the Super Bowl this Sunday.

Here is a bigger version of the new poster:

And here is the poster that was released overseas two months ago:

    I wonder if this new film will get the “Rapture Ready” crowd to thinking how wrongly they’ve interpreted Matthew 24:37-41. Because Jesus was teaching you really do want to be Left Behind, just as Noah and his family were left and not swept away in the Flood. ;)
