Overview

  • From acclaimed filmmaker Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The
    Wrestler
    ) and artist Niko Henrichon (Pride of Baghdad), Noah
    is a fresh take on the biblical epic for the 21st Century. A fantastical world is about to be destroyed and one man is chosen to start a new one. As wicked forces try to take his Ark, Noah must hold his family together while they watch the annihilation of all they know. Intermixing fantasy and sci-fi with
    Genesis, Noah both reinvents the elements of the Flood story everyone knows and simultaneously takes the reader beyond them and into the unexpected.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
03/10/2014
Aronofsky and Handel adapt their script for the motion picture of the same name, coming in late March, to comics format. This Noah encapsulates elements of the cinematic samurai legend: a deeply conflicted man and warrior, vigorous but aging, wishing only for peace with his beloved family, but drawn into a conflict greater than himself. Henrichon (Barnum!, Pride of Baghdad) applies his beautiful and lush artwork to the tale, infusing vigorous energy into the people, flora, and especially fauna of the age, and adeptly pacing the Ark’s departure against the ticking clock of a warrior invasion. Following the line of the movie, the book reinvents the Bible story as an action epic, complete with PG-rated sex scenes, attempts to symbolize Creationism with depictions of DNA, and a subplot involving a family mutiny against Noah. While it may displease fundamentalists, Aronofsky and company’s work makes for a pretty good comic-book yarn. (Mar.)

Academy Award Nominated Director DARREN ARONOFSKY was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. His upcoming film NOAH will be released on March 28th, 2014, and will star Russell Crowe, Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth in an adaptation of the biblical story of Noah's ark.

His most recent film, BLACK SWAN, won Natalie Portman the Academy Award for Best Actress and received four other nominations, including one for Best Picture. The film received scores of other accolades, appeared on over 200 critical Top Ten lists, and swept the 2011 Independent Spirit Award with wins for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Cinematography. The film was also a box office phenomenon grossing $328M worldwide.

Prior to BLACK SAWN, Aronofsky directed THE WRESTLER. The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival where it won the esteemed Golden Lion making it only the third American film in history to win this grand prize. One day later it was acquired by Fox Searchlight hours after its gala screening at the Toronto Film Festival. THE WRESTLER won Best Feature at the Independent Spirit Awards and garnered Academy Award nominations for both Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei. Golden Globes were given to Mickey for his iconic performance and to Bruce Springsteen for his original track "The Wrestler."

Aronofsky also wrote and directed THE FOUNTAIN, a science-fiction romance starring Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz. MTV's Kurt Loder called the film "a classic; dazzling and visually intoxicating" and Glenn Kenny from Premiere stated that THE FOUNTAIN, "may well restore your faith in the idea that a movie can take you out of the mundane and into a place of wonderment."

In 2000, Aronofsky premiered REQUIEM FOR A DREAM at the Cannes Film Festival. The film was named to over 150 Top Ten lists including the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and the American Film Institute. The accolades continued with five Independent Spirit Award nominations, including one for Best Director and a win for Best Actress Ellen Burstyn. Burstyn also received Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations for her unforgettable performance.
Aronofsky's first feature, p, won the Director's Award at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival and an Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay.

Among his honors, the American Film Institute gave Aronofsky the prestigious Franklin J. Schaffner Alumni Medal, the Stockholm Film Festival presented him the Golden Horse Visionary Award, and he has won three Independent Spirit Awards.
