Although its U.S. release is over two weeks away, Paramount will be releasing Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah a few days earlier in Mexico and the studio decided to kick things off there with the world premiere. After a flurry of reactions came from the many test screenings, it’s the first time the director’s version — which is the theatrical cut — has been seen by the public.

While full reviews are embargoed until close to release, we have a variety of reactions today and as a disclaimer, most of those quoted below were handpicked by Aronofsky and flown on Paramount’s dime to the premiere. Nonetheless, it’s nice to see a few comparisons to the director’s ambitious drama The Fountain, easily my favorite work from him. See the round-up of tweets below (which also include a few from an early NYC screening) and check back for our full review, and the first clip here.

Update: See a brief new trailer below.

Noah arrives on March 28th.

What do you think of the first reactions?
