For a high-budgeted tentpole one thinks there would be more buzz for Noah, considering its release is merely a week away, but aside from a few fairly positive reactions from a handpicked selection, things have been quiet. Perhaps Paramount is keeping this one close to the chest as to not stir up controversy, but will all unveiled in a short matter of time. To gear up for the release, we have now have a handful of materials from the biblical epic.
First up is 11 minutes worth of footage featuring Darren Aronofsky crafting his latest feature, providing a great look at the many moving parts. Along with a new clip tracking the animals (almost) boarding the ark, we’ve also got our first listen at a track from Clint Mansell‘s soundtrack (out on March 25th), and according to Film Music Reporter‘s track list, it’s the closer of the film.

What dictated these labels […]
