The first image from Darren Arnofsky’s Noah has been revealed over at USA Today. As you can see above, it’s not particularly revelatory, although does suggest Russell Crowe’s Noah isn’t going to be the serene Biblical patriarch he’s often painted as.
The film follows Noah, who lives on a vast plain of volcanic ash in the lee of a volcanic glacier (the movie’s being shot in Iceland) and has to trek up a mountain every day to get to work. He is told by God to build an enormous vessel to house both his family and the animals of the world to preserve them from a flood that promises to wipe out a sin-filled world. It’s currently due for released on March 28th, 2014.
