This is clearly not what Darren Aronofsky or Paramount needed right now. A rough trailer for Aronofsky’s upcoming film Noah has leaked online just days after it was being reported that the director and studio were locked in a creative battle over final cut of the film. The video seems to have been shot on an iPhone and the trailer is longer than three minutes, leading many to believe that it was never intended for public consumption.
That being said, it’s hard not to feel a little bit worried about the film after watching this video. Although there are hints of some solid effects work, the whole thing feels pretty small scale… which is obviously not what you want for a Biblical epic. The acting is also somewhat questionable, as is the text that describes it as “the epic story of one man and the most remarkable event in our history.” The trailer has already been pulled off DailyMotion but for now you can still watch it over at Defamer. Check it out after the jump and let us know what you think.
