In Noah, director Darren Aronofsky’s Old Testament epic, Russell Crowe plays the titular biblical figure who must save his family from God’s impending wrath of natural disasters.
In the pair of trailers below, Crowe sports varying hair lengths and levels of distress as he “builds a vessel to hold the innocent.” This vessel — his Book of Genesis-worthy ark — is gargantuan, with special compartments for reptiles, mammals, and birds. After all, it has to withstand biblical plagues.
We also see Anthony Hopkins, looking a little like a worse-for-wear Gandalf, advising Crowe: “You must trust he speaks in a way that you can understand.” The cast includes Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Douglas Booth.
