'Noah' Tops Weekend Box Office

March 31st, 2014 8:21am EDT
'Noah' Tops Weekend Box Office
Despite the controversy surrounding the film, "Noah" easily topped the weekend box office with $44 million in ticket sales. Many have been skeptical of the Bible film, starring Russell Crowe as the titular character, due to director Darren Aronofsky's loose interpretation of the religious tale.

Religious conservatives have blasted the movie, while Crowe has stood by his work, calling them "absolutely stupid" for making judgments about a film they haven't seen.

Crowe said on "Good Morning America" last week, "We've had probably over a year now of very harsh criticism from a bunch of people...

Review 'Noah': Hollywood Takes A Crack At This Biblical Tale

Review 'Noah': Hollywood Takes A Crack At This Biblical Tale
'Noah' written and directed By Darren Aronosfsky ('Black Swan' and 'The Wrestler') is the story of a man named, Noah.

In case you don't know who he is...Here are the cliff notes:

God, aka the Creator, was extremely pissed off at mankind. So God chose Noah (Russell Crow) to build an Arc and rescue two of every species of animal, before he sent an apocalyptic flood to destroy the world.

Can you imagine what the Creator would do now, if he saw what us humans have done to his beautiful planet? But that's another discussion.

Noah, who appears only in a few pages in the Book of Genesis, belie...

Russell Crowe Says Premature Criticism Of 'Noah' Is 'Absolute Stupidity'

March 26th, 2014 2:03pm EDT
Noah
Russell Crowe is a staunch defender of his upcoming film Noah, and he had some pointed words for critics attacking the movie before even watching it.

While talking with Good Morning America this morning, Crowe said, "We've had probably over a year now of very harsh criticism from a bunch of people who have put their name and stamp on an opinion that's not even based on the movie or seeing the movie, just an assumption of what it could be or how bad it could be or how wrong it could be in their eyes, which I think quite frankly is bordering on absolute stupidity, because now, I think, peopl...

Indonesia Is Latest Nation To Ban Biblical Epic 'Noah'
Indonesia is the latest country to ban Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic "Noah," which stars Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly.

The nation is the latest in a growing list of Muslim countries refusing to show the film on the grounds that Noah was a prophet, and Islamic culture forbids the depiction of prophets in film and imagery.

Numerous Middle Eastern countries have already banned the film, including Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

Indonesia's censorship board voted unanimously to ban the film, which tells the story of the Great Flood and hits theaters on Friday.

Noah
Paramount Studios is clarifying how its upcoming film “Noah,” starring Russell Crowe, relates to the story told in the Bible.

FDC didn’t specifically mention “Noah” in its survey, but it was clear which film they were referring to.

Paramount said in a disclaimer: "The film is inspired by the story of Noah. While art...

2014 Super Bowl Commercials & Movie Trailers: Watch Them All Here!

February 3rd, 2014 12:28am EST
CELEBNAME
Like most of America, we thought that this year's Super Bowl between the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos would have been a much closer game.

Seattle's dominance on both sides of the ball led to a very one-sided 43-8 victory, and unless you're a member of the Seahawks' "12th Man," the game itself was a bit boring at times.

Naturally, we expected some pick-me-ups during this year's commercials, but while Bruno Mars, whose halftime show with the Red Hot Chili Peppers was on par with the the dominance of Seattle (chalk it up as one of the best), the commercials were as lame as the Broncos...

Dumb and Dumber
No more new films will be released in 2013 - but there's no need to fret! Check out why we're hyped (and why we're worried) for these highly-anticipated 2014 films:

Dumb And Dumber To

Why We’re Hyped: The Farrelly Brothers, Jim Carey, and Jeff Daniels would only do the film if everyone was involved.

Why We’re Worried: When’s the last time the Farrelly Brothers made a good movie? Will Jim Carrey alienate half of his audience on Twitter – again?

The First Trailer For Darren Aronofsky's Biblical Epic 'Noah' Has Arrived

Noah
The first trailer for Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic Noah has arrived.

The film, based on the story of the Great Flood from the Book of Genesis in the Old Testament, stars Russell Crowe in the lead role. Noah is told by God to build an Ark big enough to hold two of each animal in the world -- even snakes as co-star Jennifer Connelly points out in the trailer. But some locals aren't too happy with what Noah is doing, and a confrontation ensues.

Ironically, the Oyster Bay, Long Island, set, which includes a full size Ark measuring 450 feet long, 45 feet wide and 75 feet tall and took thre...

Actor Russel Crowe admits he struggled with harsh weather conditions in Iceland while shooting the antedeluvian movie 'Noah' revealing that high winds swept his gym equipment away. The Gladiator star was floored by the country's beauty while filming Darren Aronofsky's upcoming biblical epic there last year, though he admits he found it difficult to live there.

He tells TV host Jay Leno,

"Iceland is a tough place. When they have a good summer, that means that there's been more than ten sunny days. And it can turn at the drop of a hat, the weather. It was pretty extreme. We were shootin...
