Dailies | ‘Noah’ Clip: Russell Crowe Ropes His Family Into Building a Boat ‘to Save the Innocent’ (Video)


The Darren Aronofksy film opens in theaters later this month

The first clip from Darren Aronofsky‘s Biblical epic, “Noah,” arrived this week, and it gives a peek at Russell Crowe breaking the news to his family that he's going to put them to work building a giant boat “to save the innocent.”

“Our family has been chosen for a great task: To save the innocent, the animals,” Crowe's Noah tells wife, Jennifer Connelly, and young children in the scene (above). “We need to save enough of them to start again.”

“We get to start again in a new and better world, but first, we have to build,” Crowe continues. “A great flood is coming. The waters of the heavens will meet the waters of the earths. We build a vessel to survive the storm. We build an arc.”

So next time your dad asks you to mow the lawn or take out the trash, remember, you don't have it as bad as Noah's kids.

Paramount is releasing the drama co-starring Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Anthony Hopkins, Douglas Booth and Ray Winstone on March 28.

    If this fiasco ever hits the theaters, it will be an even bigger bomb than “Carter on Mars”, “The Lone Ranger”, “Ishtar” and a slew of other disasters. Bill Cosby did the Ark and Noah schtick in the mid-60s. God to Noah: “Noah, how long can you tread water?” On critters on the plank: “Rats, rabbitts—only two, Noah, only two”.

    Ugh, what a mess. “save the innocent.” while the demon YHWH murders all the innocent babies and infants in the world. What a twisted evil story.

    All those white people with pretty teeth 3,000 years ago. Nope sorry, I will pass.

    Another fake liberal movie warping the bible. Funny how they cut down all those trees to build the ark.

    There are jobs in Texas and Florida
    and not in California or any other state ran by liberals. Why? It really is not
    that hard to figure out. High taxes and excessive regulations are job killers.
    If you care about prosperity or job creation, voting liberal does not make any
    sense. Societies with lower taxes, and this is proven throughout the ages, that
    levy lower taxes thrive; societies that levy high taxes and regulations kill
    jobs and opportunity for their people. This is why the Sarbanes Oxley, EPA
    rules, Dodd/Frank, our ridiculous tax code, Obamacare, all have to be curtailed
    or cut back. If not, you will have a pathetic economy like we do now. Good job
    Texas and other conservative states for leading the way. California, Illinois,
    New York, you deserve to crumble and you are because you continue to vote into
    office clueless job killing politicians.

    Why are conservative states such as
    Oklahoma, Texas, and Florida doing well?

    Why are liberal states such as
    California (where I am from), Illinois, and New York bankrupt? Mmmm….. (It is not a coincidence) (It is
    called created a business friendly environment which liberals not care to do,
    that is why even if Obama was president for 300 years, we would still have a
    jacked up economy)

    KKK could not think of a better way to hold black people down than Obama's
    economic policies, big government agenda, and nanny state interests. The KKK
    could not ever dream of a better way to keep black people uneducated than our
    Ted Kennedy and liberal educational curriculum. The funny thing is, or ironic,
    or frightening, is that blacks still mainly vote for liberals and support race
    mongers like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. The job creators and pushers are on
    the right, not the left. See broken California, not thriving Texas.

    The greatest thing America
    offers is that it guarantees that there are no guarantees. With socialism, it
    takes away your ability to fail. Putting a bottom on you, but with a bottom
    always comes a top, to a point where your limits are defined not by you but by
    the state and Never allowing you to define your worth and who you are. America
    offers no guarantees, allowing the opportunity to fail, but in doing so allows
    you the freedom to define who you are as a person, created by God, with
    unlimited potential and the opportunity to succeed beyond your wildest dreams.
