Audiences didn't exactly flood into theaters to see Darren Aronofsky's latest offering, Noah, but the much discussed Biblical adaptation made a solid opening, snagging a clear number on with $44 million.

The Pope And Darren Aronofsky's Noah Aren't On The Same Biblical Page
It all started with Variety running a story with the now-changed headline “Pope Cancels Noah Meeting With Russell Crowe” - with the magic word “Tentatively” put in later. Feeling slighted, Paramount voiced their concern by saying this wasn’t exactly true, as their initial request for a meeting was cancelled immediately, not “tentatively on the calendar for 8:30 a.m. Wednesday” as Variety claimed.

Noah Has Already Been Banned In A Bunch Of Countries
A certain segment of Christians might be upset about Noah’s message allegedly straying a bit from the holy source material, but that outrage is apparently nothing compared to the pushback so far in the Middle East. Prior to its release date, the movie has already been banned in several countries and analysts are predicting it will suffer the same censored fate in much of the region.

Paramount Significantly Alters Noah's Marketing Without Consulting Darren Aronofsky
Early on, Paramount and Aronofsky agreed to market to those of Christian faith without pandering or making excuses, urging them to open their minds to an unusual interpretation to a beloved story. Instead, Paramount did not consult with the director and honored the wishes of the National Religious Broadcasters by labeling ads and promotional material with this message.

Noah Set Visit: Building An Ark With Russell Crowe and Darren Aronofsky
Many of the exteriors in Noah were filmed in Iceland, which gives the film the unmistakable look immediately familiar in all of the trailers. But in September of 2012-- just a few weeks before Hurricane Sandy blew through--Aronofsky had come home, erecting a giant version of the ark in a park in Long Island, an hour outside New York City.

This Hilariously Biased Poll Claims A Stupid Number Of Christians Are Mad At Hollywood
We’re a little more than a month away from Noah hitting theaters, and at this point, no one has any idea whether it’ll be a massive flop, a massive hit or something in between. The truth is it probably depends on how many of the 100 million or so Evangelicals who live in the United States show up, and a new poll would have you believe they want no part of Noah.

Darren Aronofsky Gets Final Say Over Noah's Theatrical Cut
Aronofsky’s movies have always been powerful and confrontational, though it was only a matter of time before he surrendered to the threat of test screenings. Separate versions of the film were shown to audiences, with incomplete effects and music that he felt, and while Aronofsky felt he and the studio hit a “rough patch,” Paramount fully supports his vision.

Russell Crowe Prepares For A Flood In Noah's Super Bowl Trailer
Noah is based on a script co-written by Aronofsky and Ari Handel and retells the classic biblical tale of how the titular ordinary man (Russell Crowe) was instructed by god to build an ark in preparation for an apocalyptic flood.

Russell Crowe Stands Alone In Final Poster For Darren Aronofsky's Noah
Based on a script by Aronofsky and John Logan, the film will recount the fantastic tale of how Noah (played by Russell Crowe) built a massive ark to house two of every animal on Earth before an apocalyptic flood. As you can probably tell from the tone of this poster, it's a fairly dark tale and the image of the hero makes it look like he's had to go through some really rough shit in order to finish the work commanded of him by god.

Darren Aronofsky And Paramount Butting Heads Over Noah?
While the trade doesn't have any first person reactions from the screenings in New York, Arizona and Orange County, California, sources have told them that the showings "generated troubling reactions" (though its not exactly clear what that means). When reached for comment Aronofsky and his camp did not respond, but Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore told THR that the movie is undergoing a "normal review process" that they hope will produce "one version of the movie that Darren is overseeing."

Darren Aronofsky Says Noah's Animals Are 'Slightly Tweaked' And Not Exactly Recognizable
“There are fantastical creatures, fantastical events,” Aronofsky said in a recent interview. “There’s a huge deluge. What you’re photographing is often not the thing that will appear on screen—that’s the underpinning. There will be a huge amount of visual architecture placed on top of that, and that sort of makes it a different job. Sometimes only the actor’s face will be in the final image.”

Take A First Look Inside Darren Aronofsky's Noah
One of the most fascinating questions surrounding Darren Aronofsky's Noah is how the director plans on dealing with all of the animals. In the biblical story, God has the titular character gather up two of every creature on Earth in order to save them from the great flood. Obviously in order to accomplish this the director will need to use a big of digital trickery and CGI, but judging by a new photo from the set they will be using practical animals as well.

Breaking Bad's Mark Margolis Joins Darren Aronofsky's Noah
While Mark Margolis' recent acclaim includes a much-deserved Emmy nomination, before he was playing the wheelchair bound Tio Salamanca on Breaking Bad, he appeared in numerous Darren Aronofsky films. That's putting it mildly as Margolis' acting credits include every feature-length film Aronofsky is credited for directing. And it looks like the upcoming epic biblical drama Noah will be no exception to that.

Darren Aronofsky's Noah Adds Cain and Abel
The biblical story of Noah is pretty damn big all by itself. You have to cover all of the evil deeds of mankind, God making a deal with Noah to rescue two of every animal on earth, the building of the ark, the worldwide flood, and, eventually, the covenant that that said God would never flood the Earth again. But apparently that's not the only biblical story that director Darren Aronofsky wants to explore in his next film.

Jennifer Connelly In Talks To Join Russell Crowe In Darren Aronofsky's Noah
For as long as Darren Aronofsky's Noah has been in the casting stage, which began when Russell Crowe signed on to star, we've heard whispers about the Oscar-nominated director wanting Jennifer Connelly to play his female lead. While performers such as Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth have signed on to the movie since, Connelly has remained a question mark in connection to the film. Today the fog has begun to clear.

It is unknown at this time how a human antagonist will play a role in the story, but details should be revealed as the project heads closer to production.
