A new trailer for the forthcoming biblical epic Noah has been released – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch.

Russell Crowe stars in the title role and his Noah is described in Paramount Picture’s official synopsis as “a man chosen by God for a great task before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world”.

Crowe is joined by an impressive supporting cast that includes Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Douglas Booth and Logan Lerman.

Director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, The Fighter) directed from a script he co-wrote with his regular collaborator Ari Handel and Skyfall scribe John Logan. Shooting took place in Iceland and New York State in mid-to-late 2012 and production was put on hold briefly during October of that year when Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast of the US.

Noah will open in cinemas in the UK and US on March 28, 2014.
