Paramount released a massive collection of images taken by a professional photographer on the set of Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. The film, which has entered the post-production phase, is nearly complete so, hopefully we’ll be seeing [at the very least]a teaser trailer soon! These images show the cast, director and crew hard at work in Iceland, where the bulk of the film was shot.
Aronofsky has written and directed this adaptation of Ari Handel’s graphic novel about the story of Biblical Noah, who suffers from visions of an apocalyptic flood and takes measures to protect his family from the coming flood. When no one listens to his warnings, Noah and his family are cast out to fend for themselves in the wilderness. Noah approaches a race of giant six-armed angels known as the “Watchers” to rally them to his cause.
Aronofsky’s last big budget outing, The Fountain was a complete commercial failure, despite being well liked by those audiences and critics who saw it. Not sure why it bombed so hard, but a “less accessible story” (read: non-formulaic blockbuster) without the support of proper marketing may have had something to do with it.
In these images you can get a look at some of the film’s stars Russell Crowe, Ray Winstone, Jennifer Connelly, and Anthony Hopkins. The rest of the images document the challenges of shooting in remote parts of Iceland, which seems to be no easy task.
Noah opens in theatres on March 28th, 2014.
