Now Playing Synopsis: Darren Aronofsky brings the story of Noah's Ark to the big screen with this Paramount/New Regency production. "In the beginning, there was nothing." So starts this version of the story centered on Noah (Russell Crowe), the man entrusted by God to save the innocent animals of Earth as the rising floodwaters cleansed the planet of mankind's evil. As the telling continues, we learn how Adam and Eve's sins have passed down through generations through their sons Cain and Abel, and how the descendants of their righteous sibling Seth were entrusted with defending creation. One day, while foraging in the country, a descendant of Seth, Noah, sees his father slain by a descendant of Cain. In the process, Noah's birthright is stolen from him.

Decades later, as a father of three, Noah experiences a vision foretelling the great flood that will wash over the Earth, destroying every living thing that stands on the soil. That vision leads Noah to seek out his grandfather, Methuselah, in order to understand his mission. When a second vision reveals that Noah is to construct a massive ark designed to shelter every living animal during the great flood, Noah, his wife Naameh (Jennifer Connelly), their three sons Shem (Douglas Booth), Ham (Logan Lerman), and Japheth (Leo McHugh Carroll), and their adoptive sister Ila (Emma Watson) immediately begin construction on the vessel with the help of the Watchers, a race of angels created as beings of light, but encrusted in stone and mud and forsaken by God for their attempts to help man. Meanwhile, word of Noah's work soon reaches Tubal Cain (Ray Winstone), who gathers an army on a mission to overtake the ark, and survive the coming storm by any cost.

The Angriest Man in Brooklyn

Opens Friday, May 23, 2014 Synopsis: Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, Melissa Leo, Peter Dinklage, and Hamish Linklater headline this dark comedy directed by Phil Alden Robinson, and centering on a man who races through the streets of Brooklyn on a mission to make amends for his checkered past after being informed that he only has 90 minutes to live. In all of his years, Henry Altmann (Williams) has never had a good day. An embittered malcontent with a perpetual chip on his shoulder, Altmann's impatience is put to the test one morning in his doctor's waiting room. Little does Altmann realize that Dr. Gill (Kunis) is having a particularly rough morning as well. Particularly enraged after being informed that he has a brain aneurism, Altmann demands to know how long he has left to live. When the frustrated doctor vindictively gives Altmann a life-expectancy of 90 minutes, a sudden sense of regret washes over him, propelling him on a mission to seek forgiveness with the people he has hurt the most in life. Meanwhile, Dr. Gill, regretful of her callous and reckless diagnosis, races to track Altmann down, and get him on the operating table. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Robin Williams, Mila Kunis Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
