Russell Crowe Wields an Axe in New Poster for Darren Aronofsky’s NOAH

Ahead of its big Super Bowl spot on Sunday, Paramount Pictures has released a new poster for director Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical epic Noah.  The film is Aronofsky’s take on the Great Flood story from the Bible, and as we can see in this new poster, the filmmaker is going heavy on the “epic” portion of the tale.  Russell Crowe sports a pretty gnarly beard while holding a small axe in one hand, as if to suggest that the film will find Noah battling more than just heavy rain and flood waters.  Aronofsky has been passionate about bringing Noah to the screen for years, so I’m interested to see what his vision for the pic entails.  From what we’ve seen so far, Noah looks to be the filmmaker’s most “commercial” work yet, but time will tell if that’s just Paramount trying to appeal to the widest possible audience.  I’m hopeful for some Aronofsky weirdness.
