NOAH now out on Blu-ray & DVD


Russell Crowe stars as Noah in the film inspired by the epic story of courage, sacrifice and hope. Directed by visionary filmmaker Darren Aronofsky.

The film is inspired by the story of Noah. While artistic license has been taken, we believe that this film is true to the essence, values and integrity of a story that is a cornerstone of faith for millions of people worldwide. The biblical story of Noah can be found in the book of Genesis.




Below is a short interview with Russell Crowe

QUESTION: Mr. Crowe, how familiar were you with the story of Noah?
CROWE: I was very aware of the story. I had read the Noah story in the bible and had researched several interpretations of the Noah story.

QUESTION: How challenging was it to shoot this film?
CROWE: It was very challenging because I was wet most of the time. And it was very, very cold in Iceland.
QUESTION: Is it true that you got sick a lot on the set due to the constant rain?
CROWE: No, I didn’t get sick. But the rain certainly was an ordeal. We had a rainmaking machine on set, and it could flood several football fields within seconds . We stood in the cold rain for 36 days straight. 

QUESTION: Were you surprised then that your new movie is being banned in a lot of Muslim countries?
CROWE: No, I was not surprised. Even though Noah is in the Koran as well. But we knew going into this project that you can’t make stories or render images about the Prophet. But I do believe people are missing out if they don’t have the choice to see this film. 

QUESTION: On the other hand, Pope Francis invited you and some crew members to come to the Vatican. That must have been quite an experience.
CROWE: It was. It truly was. This Pope is a very special man. And it was an absolute privilege to be invited. 

QUESTION: Noah saved animals from the great flood. Do you think the flood really happened, or is it fiction?
CROWE: I never looked at Noah as an animal collector. I always thought of him as an apocalyptic character. I read everything I found about it and was surprised to find that in all religions there is the story of the flood, and that one "hero" saved the world. This proved that Noah and his Ark were not a religious myth,
and evidence that humanity really went through the flood. 

QUESTION: Do you believe in destiny?
CROWE: Yes, in my life there were times when dreams have nothing to do with reality, but obviously it was prophetic dreams. And I know that if I look closely and listen carefully, you can see the supernatural signs that determine our future. We all meet with various everyday difficulties and overcoming them, we grow and develop. 

QUESTION: You’ve been in show business for many years now. What is your secret for longevity?
CROWE: You need to learn to live with your mistakes. And you need to be in a position to say No once in a while. It’s important in life, and it’s important for any career that you want to pursue.
QUESTION: You are about to celebrate your 50th birthday. Are you excited?
CROWE: Thanks for reminding me about my age. Thankfully, I don’t worry so much about my age. It’s the one thing I can’t really influence. I usually don’t celebrate much on my birthday. And it looks as if I will be spending the next one on a set again. It’s just the way I like it. 

QUESTION: Every year we see several films about the end of the world. What do you think will happen after the world ends?
CROWE: I have two kids, so I would not even think about the end of the world and the Apocalypse. I like to think of a happy future of my children. And what lies ahead and what lies ahead of us all.
