Darren Aronofsky’s new film, Noah, opens in theaters and IMAX across North America and elsewhere today. Russell Crowe stars as Noah in the film inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice, and hope. The cast stars Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Anthony Hopkins. Aronofsky "creates a challenging, enthralling, very modern parable," says TIME. "Movies aren’t supposed to be this good this early in the year." "Clint Mansell’s music for Noah," writes the Wall Street Journal, "is appropriately stirring, threatening, terrifying and majestic."
