Noah Aronofsky Ark

Looming large over the landscape, the ark that Noah (Russell Crowe) and his family will use to save themselves (and by proxy, humanity) was made of an old material called “wood” instead of the preferred material called “pixels.” Darren Aronofsky‘s decision to go big for the floating home is something to celebrate even if it exhausted those in charge of production, set, art and the local logging industry. The movie will no doubt involve some CGI, but this Herculean undertaking proves an odd kind of old school dedication to delivering something breathtaking in-camera.

Plus, if you open the lid, your face melts off.

The epic Noah is set for theaters March 28, 2014, so we have a ways to go before we see this beauty in all its sea-worthy glory, but even in still form, it inspires a bit of awe and the believability that it can hold two of every animal except unicorns.

Hyperbolic internet writers, it’s okay to use the phrase “awesome” in this instance. [Vulture]
