mother! Header Image

Mother!
Written & Directed by Darren Aronofsky
Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer
Paramount Pictures
Release date: September 15, 2017

*** Note – no spoilers below for Mother!, but I also recommend that you DO NOT research the film or look it up on IMDb until after you see it. ***

With all the subtlety of a sledgehammer to the face, Darren Aronofsky brings you Mother! The film stars Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem as a married couple living and working out of a huge house in the middle of woods. He is a poet dealing with crippling writer’s block and she is working effortlessly to get the house in order. Soon they are visited by guests seemingly out of nowhere. A doctor arrives, followed by his wife and later their sons. Soon the whole house is full and while Bardem seems to revel in the attention and adulation, Lawrence grows quickly worried and fearful. And that’s pretty much all I can tell you about the plot of Mother! without spoiling anything. The plot is not what matters here. Instead, let me segue by telling you that about 100 minutes into this 2+ hour film, a man sitting way back in the theater threw a full soda at the screen, showering us as it flew by, before storming out with his female companion. Yep, Mother! is THAT kinda movie.

Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th

A major studio changing a scheduled release is common practice within the industry. But when it comes to pulling a major tentpole sequel off the schedule, that is something to worry about.

A new report confirms Paramount has pulled World War Z 2 and Friday the 13th of their scheduled release, with the latter later reported to be shut down completely. Both films were a part of Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes production company. However, they have announced a release date for Darren Aronofsky‘s mother!, starring Jennifer Lawrence. More on the story below.

Somehow, I managed to read Noah: The Official Movie Novelization, as well as the Young Adult adaptation Noah: Ila’s Story, and Noah, the graphic novel adaptation all before ever seeing Darren Aronofsky’s feature film, starring Russell Crowe as the title character.

Each of the adaptations has their merits and I found that I enjoyed all three versions. But, which edition is best? Well, that would depend on what type of reader you are.

Watch This ‘Noah’ Ark Featurette (Video)

Noah movie Ark featurette

This weekend saw the theatrical release of Noah, the biblical epic from director Darren Aronofsky, who co-wrote the screenplay. The story goes in preparation for the Great Flood, Noah and his family must build an ark and gather into it enough animals so that every species will survive the disaster in order to go on to repopulate the Earth.

When it came to making Noah, the filmmakers had to pay great attention to the ark itself. Paramount Pictures has released a 4 1/2-minute featurette that gives a behind-the-scenes look on the making of the ark and includes interview footage with Aronofsky, actor Russell Crowe (who stars as Noah), and others, along with scenes from the film.

Check out the featurette here below.

‘Noah’ Trailer: Darren Aronofsky Envisions The Great Flood

Darren Aronofsky's Noah Starring Russell Crowe

Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah. The film is based on the biblical story of Noah, who built a giant ark and saved two of every animal and his family, while the rest of the world was purged by the Great Flood. The difference is that Noah is seen more as a builder in the Bible and Aronofsky is depicting the Biblical figure as a warrior. While this is the first time that the general public has seen footage, the trailer features footage that was presented at various religious conferences throughout the country.

There has been some conflict with Aronofsky and Paramount about the final edit of the film though. Test screenings have not been favorable, but those who have seen the film at religious conferences would probably tell you differently. Paramount has invested a fair amount of cash into Noah, which could turn out to be an epic hit or an epic failure depending on who gets the final cut. Hit the jump to see the trailer.

Russell Crowe as Noah

We’ve already seen the first image of Russell Crowe as Noah in Darren Aronofsky‘s new movie version of the biblical tale, titled Noah. Now comes some new set photos of the actor in costume.

Unlike that first image of Crowe, Noah doesn’t have hair on his head in these set photos and he is also looking like quite the bad ass. Noah is said to have been 600 years old when the whole flood thing went down, but I surely wouldn’t mess with him.

Also recently released is the first image of the completed ark that Noah built, which doesn’t look at all like you’d expect it to. You can see all of the images below.

The Adjustment Bureau director George Nolfi is set to make XOXO, a tense social media thriller that is said to be in the vein of Fatal Attraction.

But that is just the tip of it all. Nolfi will be using a script written by Black Swan screenwriter Mark Heyman, and will receive some assistance from Darren Aronofsky, Michael London,, and Kelly Mullen. That’s quite the behind the scenes kind of team any filmmaker would love to have.

Check Out The First Image Of Russell Crowe From Darren Aronofsky’s ‘Noah’

Noah Header

The story of Noah is among one of the greatest Biblical stories ever told, and Darren Aronofsky will finally be able to bring his vision of a man who saved his family and many animals from an epic flood to the big screen after years of gestating. Of course his vision will have a slight twist, but it will also keep the spirit of the story. So after a couple of casting rumors and set photo reveals from the director himself, we are getting our first look at Russell Crowe as the titular hero. Check it out below.

Crowe looks rugged and his clothing is tattered, but other than that, there isn’t too much to describe about the image. But we’ve seen giant set photos of the ark in the past, which suggest that this is going to be one of Aronofsky’s biggest films. The director occasionally posts photos on his twitter account to update his fans on the progress of the film.
