Directed by Darren Aronofsky, “Noah,” an action/adventure/drama film, was inspired by the Bible story “Noah” from the “Book of Genesis.” Noah (Russell Crowe) — a descendant of Adam’s son Seth — his wife Naameh (Jennifer Connelly) and their three sons, Shem (Douglas Booth), Ham (Logan Lerman) and Japheth (Leo McHugh Carroll) live in a time where everyone had abandoned “The Creator.”
As a result, the people of the earth have turned wicked and evil towards one another and all the earth’s creatures. Noah has a dream that a massive flood destroys the world. To find out what the dream means, Noah and his family travel to see his grandfather, the very old but wise Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins).
On their journey, they come across young Ila (Skylar Burke), whose family was murdered by scavengers. Noah adopts Ila and she joins the family on their quest. While traveling they meet the “Watchers,” large rock-like creatures who are fallen angels, cast out of heaven.
The “Watchers” help Noah find Methuselah, who serves Noah a potion. Noah has a vision that tells him he must build an ark and load up all the animals into the ark, with one male and female of each kind.
