Six new images from Darren Aronofsky’s Noah (updated)

Finally, new images from Darren Aronofsky’s Noah!

We’ve seen a few behind-the-scenes shots already — images of the Ark and pictures of the crew tweeted by the director and his cinematographer, plus any number of unofficial shots of actors wandering around in costume — but until now, there has been almost nothing in the way of images released by the studio.
