The first trailer for Noah
, the forthcoming
Paramount Picture biblical epic, is online. With a budget of $130 million, and slated for release in March/April 2014
, and with a cast of stars, this covers Chapter 6-9 of the Book of Genesis
. Filming took place mostly in Iceland, with some scenes in New York State.
Test screenings have produced mixed results, and some tension in final film editing
. The accuracy of the detail may be a focus for some:
'Producer Scott Franklin told Entertainment Weekly, "Noah is a very short section of the Bible with a lot of gaps, so we definitely had to take some creative expression in it. But I think we stayed very true to the story and didn't really deviate from the Bible, despite the six-armed angels."'
