‘Noah’ Pre-Game Super Bowl Spot Comes Up Snake Eyes

NOAH (Paramount Pictures)The good news is director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Wrestler) has only helmed superior work, and his most ambitious effort, the life affirming tale The Fountain, is ridiculously underrated.

But will Aronofsky’s cerebral approach fit into Noah, a film of biblical (literally) proportions? Russell Crowe stars as Noah, the man who’s called by God to build an ark to save his family and a plethora of animals from an epic flood. Jennifer Connelly, who worked with Aronofsky in Requiem for a Dream and Crowe in A Beautiful Mind, stars as Noah’s wife Naameh, with Emma Watson co-starring as Noah’s adopted daughter Ila.

The movie comes out March 28, and my “snake eyes” headline refers to the lovely reptiles that are briefly featured in the spot. Considering Aronofsky’s track record, Noah should be worth the game.

Check out the trailer, which will also air during the Super Bowl, below:
