Watch: Russell Crowe in ‘Noah’ trailer

And now, after a tidal wave of buzz, something that will really float your boat (and provide us with the opportunity to make lots of terrible puns): the trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah.”

The biblical film looks exactly as epic as you’d expect, sort of like “Braveheart” but wetter. There’s a ginormous ark, rainy battle scenes and Russell Crowe as a brooding, long-locked Noah.

Crowe’s not the only Oscar-winner on board. Jennifer Connelly plays his wife Naameh, and Anthony Hopkins is Methuselah. Emma Watson’s in there too.

Paramount will release the film in March.
