The ‘Noah’ Movie Has Been Delayed Until Summer [Updated]

Darren Aronofsky’s Noah epic is like an increasingly odd, but still very exciting, foray into biblical epics. Aronofsky has made it clear that this is more of an “inspired by” than a “based on” type of movie, so don’t go looking to see your childhood flannelgraph writ large. Instead, this is looking like a wonky, spooky, prehistoric, post-apocalyptic epic—complete with Russell Crowe’s Noah character being based on Mad Max, an ark that looks like more of a tank and some scary-looking Nephalim. But Paramount clearly has faith in the movie—so much so that they’ve moved it from its unassuming March release date to make it a full-fledged summer blockbuster. This means you’ll have to wait a little longer to see what a Mad Max Noah looks like, but it also means the people who are seeing it are liking what they’re seeing …

Update: Never mind. Paramount Pictures has reached out to us and, evidently, the report that the movie would be pushed back was incorrect. March 28 remains the release date.
