Russell Crowe: First look as ‘Noah’

Russell Crowe: First look as 'Noah'

USA Today has unveiled the first photo of Russell Crowe as the title character in Darren Aronofsky‘s big-budget biblical epic “Noah,” which is currently in production in Iceland. Check out the photo below.

The story follows the biblical tale of a man (Crowe) who is given the mission to build a giant vessel that can house two of every animal from the earth to save them from a giant flood that will wipe all life for a new beginning.

Aronofsky has been tweeting updates about his upcoming film, including several last month. “I dreamt about this since I was 13. And now it’s a reality. Genesis 6:14,” he said on July 11.

“Noah” won’t be your average Biblical epic though. Aronofsky plans to feature wingless angel demons and giants–based on his tweets, a creature named Og. Og was the King of Bahan, a race of giants, and part of the Rephaim in the Bible.

“According to Jewish folklore, Noah built a special compartment in the Ark for him and/or he rode out the flood by sitting on the top. Either way, we’ll see how Og will make an appearance, but it’s another interesting note to a movie that is playing as much with myth and legend as it is with the elements of the standard story we know,” writes Kevin Jagernauth.

The film is being made in Iceland, amidst inclement weather. Crowe has taken to his Twitter to talk about the cold and the wind during filming.

The new movie co-sars Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Ray Winstone, Douglas Booth, Emma Watson and Logan Lerman. It’s set to hit theaters on March 28th, 2014.

Sparkle: Whitney’s last film

Sparkle: Whitney's last film

Before her sudden death at age 48, the legendary singer Whitney Houston made her last film – Sparkle. The film has an official release date for August 17, 2012 and sure to be now one of the most anticipated films of the year. Not much is known about Whitney’s character except she will play a single mother whose daughter has high aspirations of becoming a music superstar.

‘Sparkle’, is loosely based on the 1976 musical film that tells the story of Sparkle (Jordin Sparks) a girl who strives to become a music star, while trying to overcome the problems that are destroying her family. She comes from a wealthy neighborhood in Detroit, where she lives with her single mother (Whitney Houston). In the midst of her personal difficulties, Sparkle tries to balance a new romance with music manager, Stix (Derek Luke), while she and her two sisters (Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter) face unexpected challenges in trying to become a dynamic group of singers during the golden era of Motown.

The only photo that exists so far of Houston in the movie is the one below. In it we see a Whitney holding her daughter in the film, Jordin Sparks, with a glamorous dress. She looks young, healthy and beautiful.

At the time of this publication, it is unknown when exactly the official premiere of the trailer of ‘Sparkle’ will be released or how much screen time Houston will have. So remember, August 17 we will see on the silver screen the last picture of one of the most unique voices of the 20th century.
