Now that the annual January dumping ground for movies is over, it is time to get excited about the months ahead, when Hollywood starts releasing some quality films. This year, movie lovers have a lot of treats to look forward to. Here are 10 of them.
Directed by Darren Aronofsky
Starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone and Emma Watson
Expected Release: March 28
A biblical epic may seem widely out of place for Darren Aronofsky, director of small-budget, gritty films like Pi, The Wrestler, and Black Swan. But his take on the immense tale of Noah seems to contain a sweeping and alluring grandeur. It takes a great actor to shoulder a role of this magnitude, but Russell Crowe is up to the challenge with his proven ability to carry huge films (Master and Commander, Gladiator) and Ray Winstone is a similarly strong choice for his foil. I’ll also be happy to see the enchanting Emma Watson as his daughter.
