I first published the following post back in November when the trailer to the new Noah movie came out. With the film now out in the US and slated to hit UK screens on 4 April, I thought it was worth a repost.
If I were writing this post now, I think I would approach it rather differently. (Funny how much our thinking can change in a relatively short time.) I still have some concerns, but I think I was somewhat more uptight and dogmatic when I wrote this than I needed to be. What do you think?
In the past couple of days, a new trailer has been released for the forthcoming movie Noah, slated for release in March 2014. With a budget of $125 million, special effects galore and an all-star cast that includes Russell Crowe, Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly and Emma Watson, it’s sure to receive plenty of media attention over the coming months.
Here’s the trailer:
The only reason I know of this movie is that a number of friends have shared the trailer on social media, accompanied by comments to the effect that it looks great and they can’t wait to see it. At the risk of being dismissed as a killjoy, I don’t share their enthusiasm.
