Noah video round-up: a new clip, a new music video, and soundbites from faith leaders and filmmakers alike

The movie officially comes out in North America on Friday, but plenty of theatres will be showing it Thursday night. So with three days to go until the film comes out, the studio has released another clip from Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. You can check it out below the jump, along with a new (and possibly unauthorized) music video for the theme song that Patti Smith wrote for the film, as well as some interview clips with the filmmakers and with “faith leaders” who have endorsed the film.

First, the new clip, which is an abbreviated version of the scene where Russell Crowe’s Noah and Ray Winstone’s Tubal-Cain meet for the first time:

Second, the music video, which consists of a slideshow set to the song — and many of the photos here are utterly new to me:

Third, a new video produced by Phil Cooke, featuring interviews with “faith leaders” who have seen the film and are at least somewhat positive about it:

And now, the EPK (electronic press kit) stuff, starting with these soundbites from director Darren Aronofsky:

Russell Crowe, who plays Noah:

Jennifer Connelly, who plays Noah’s wife Naameh (note how she says she took some inspiration for the part from Proverbs 31):

Emma Watson, who plays Noah’s adopted daughter-in-law Ila (I’ve posted another version of this before, but I might as well keep this here for completism’s sake):

Anthony Hopkins, who plays Noah’s grandfather Methuselah:

Ray Winstone, who plays Noah’s nemesis Tubal-Cain:

Logan Lerman, who plays Noah’s son Ham:

Douglas Booth, who plays Noah’s son Shem:

Production designer Mark Friedberg:

Special effects supervisor Burt Dalton:

And finally, the B-roll footage, versions of which I have posted before:
