    Sweet Trailer…Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah'

    How does Russell Crowe top playing Maximus, Robin Hood and even the Father of the Man of Steel? Well there’s really only one way. He’s gotta go back, way back, like old testament. After lots of anticipation and some news of production woes (what HUGE feature doesn’t have them?) we’re finally getting to see the epic vision for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah starring Crowe as the Biblical hero.

Darren Aronofsky sure makes some emotional and philosophical films, and while I think some of them (mostly Pi and The Fountain) went over my head, I found this film struck a chord with me. In my opinion, I think you can only “get” sports movies if you actually played the sport they’re…
