Russell Crowe stars in a new Paramount Pictures film called Noah. The tale is a well-known one based on The Bible, and we can only presume will involve a lot of water and an Ark.

We did not see the film but we were on the red carpet when Russell Crowe arrived at The Filmhouse to attend the Fan Premiere of his latest epic billed as a story of courage, sacrifice and hope. He was having a busy day having started off in Dublin and has yet to stop off in Cardiff, but was charming to his fans, if a little less long-suffering with the press.

We got a little interview with him inside the cinema

Douglas Booth the 21 year-old actor who plays Crowe’s son in the movie had arrived at the cinema just ahead of the star.

Olympic medallist Katherine Grainger CBE was also attending the premiere along with her mother Liz.

The film is expected to gross $41m on this its opening weekend in the US.

Some religious groups have criticised the film before they have even seen it according to the star who told The Guardian of his meeting with Pope Francis which took place in spite of controversy spilling out around the movie.

Almost 600,000 people like the film’s Facebook page, which may or may not be a testament to its popularity, and this is one of several biblical films coming to the big screen this year.

  1. Noah a vegetarian? Really, Darren? God gave man dominion over flora and fauna. Humans are omnivores and need animal protein for proper brain development..

    Noah (a recorded toolmaker.) and family were farmers and built the ark to preserve and continue life. If anything, Noah should have killed sociopathic Ham, after the flood, not his unborn grandchild on an ark where nobody was pregnant.

    Aronofsky should be reassured Noah existed and his sons and their descendants be traced through Chronicles in the Bible and archaeology to people and places today. In 2002, Holocaust survivors asked an artist to “Find Noah”, and in three internet days, he found all the grandchildren and where they lived. Why are the 7 Noahide laws, for Jews and Gentiles alike, still the basis for law on earth? I don’t think Darren knows, but he WANTS to know.

    Please experience…. , a four part interactive essay where Noah’s descendants are traced through architecture, art history and the 3 style of hats, each son of Noah’s families wore (each had their own head covering style), the meteor that struck earth in 3123 bce and “messed things up” until this day…and more

  2. Jacob, reread your Bible.Mankind were vegetarian before the Flood. It was not until after he Ark landed that God gave dominion over flora and fauna to man.
    And no, we do NOT need animal protein for brain development.Millions of vegetarian Hindus with universtity degrees will beg to differ.
