There’s been a lot of buzz about the new Russell Crowe / Hermione vehicle “Noah” that opens this week. Some of that buzz, unfortunately, has been negative, with accusations of liberal bias. The movie has also been banned in several (mostly predominantly Muslim) countries, and a competing film depicting the same story has been promoted on YouTube since January and is now available for download or DVD order.
Among all this news, controversy, and excitement comes news of a previously unseen trailer for an early-edition cut of the movie. Apparently the movie was originally written to have a more lighthearted bent, but for some reason changes were made to the script. Attempts to reach out to director Darren Aronofsky for comment have so far been unsuccessful.
