Check out the creation of everything in clip from Darren Aronofsky's Noah

May. 12, 2014by:

NOAH's been out for almost two months now and has made some decent bank. Not PASSION OF THE CHRIST numbers, but it's crossed the 300 million mark worldwide. I've read good things about the film, but for those who may be on the fence, there's a pretty cool clip online of Russell Crowe narrating the very first story of the bible: the creation of everything.

See how it all began here:

Coming from someone who had little interest in the traditional story of Noah, I can tell you that this clip definitely reminds me that this film is "Aronofsky", through and through. The pseudo-stop-motion animation isn't too pleasing on my eyes, but the music and occasional visuals work well together, compliments of Aronofsky regular Clint Mansell.

NOAH, starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, and Emma Watson, is out in theaters now.

The always beautiful Jennifer Connelly is probably reason enough to catch this flick.

Extra Tidbit: Does this clip do anything to sway your opinion of the flick if you haven't seen it yet?

I HATED this movie, but this was beautiful compromise. It seamlessly blended evolution and creationism into a single story that could make everyone happy :-P

I agree. It's a presentation of creation that does not conflict with evolution or creationism.

This movie was beyond terrible. Next year it'll be in the bargain bin at Wal-Mart and still no one will buy it.

Didn't hate Noah

But it was definitely Aronofsky's weakest film to date. This "creation" sequence was easily the best sequence of the film and goes hand and hand with Malick's sequence from The Tree of Life. I don't know what some are saying about it perfectly blending evolution and creationism without offending either when it's clearly evolution being featured the entire segment with Noah's six day narrative in the background to make up for the billions of years all these events took to happen. I commend

I commend Aronofsky's for his courage and the studio staying true to his vision.

I did like this montage and the quick sequence in which silhouetted figures show mankind's propensity towards conflict. This film is very much a mixed bag though. Aronofsky aimed for different and different is what we ended up with, but certainly at the expense of staying true to the source material. The story of Noah in the Bible is a short one though, so a lot of that is due to expansion via adpaptation.

lol I understand wanting to stay true to the source material when adapting books. But any religious writing is up for "interpretation" by each individual. Hence why people are blowing themselves up because thats what they interpret their "religious writings" to be conveying.

Yeah, Aronofsky didn't intend to stay true to the source material.
He wanted to set it in a pseudo-apocalyptic world, feature animals that don't even exist, basically create a fantasy movie while borrowing some elements from the myths (not only the Bible, this story appears in other religious texts). I don't see this as a bad thing, I quite liked that he did.

Best scene of the movie...

Ya sure that one scene was probably the best part of the movie, the rest was convoluted garbage. I had pretty high expectations for this and was really let down, one of the biggest disappointments of the year so far.

It might be, since IMO this is the best sequence in the whole movie. You can tell there was a lot of work there.

I actually did very much enjoy the movie as I see it as just a story like any other. Top performances from the cast and a pretty epic scale.
