Easiest way to describe “Noah”? Judging from its new - and not bootlegged - trailer, consider it a cross between the Old Testament and “Gladiator.” The new preview for writer-director Darren Aronofsky's cinematic retelling of the biblical flood features more battle scenes than you might have expected, as an army led by Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins) tries to storm Noah's vessel, as Hopkins yells, “Take the ark!” Looking a bit like the buff Maximus in “Gladiator,” Crowe basically tells Methuselah to find another boat - or die trying to take his. PHOTOS: Extreme celebrity weight transformations for roles The early peek at the film's visual effects are impressive, as all creatures great and small crowd into the ark as Noah warns, “A great flood is coming.” The cast includes Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson and Logan Lerman.

 In a very competitive Sunset League, Huntington Beach Edison (11-3, 3-0) might be considered an early season surprise under first-year Coach Cameron Chinn. But don't tell that to pitcher Noah Kronfly, who improved to 4-0 on Friday and outdueled UCLA-bound Jacob Nix in a 1-0 victory over Los Alamitos. Phillip Knapp drove in the game's only run with a second-inning RBI single. Kronfly allowed two hits. Fountain Valley defeated Newport Harbor, 10-0. Dylan Persinger hit a two-run home run. Brock Lundquist hit his fourth home run of the season.

NEW YORK - The ark in "Noah" should be the ultimate petting zoo, but a warning sign on the film's massive set here tells visitors to keep their hands to themselves: "Animals are fragile. Please do not touch. " There are fake mammals crowding one deck, artificial lambs lying with ersatz lions on another, mounds of rubber snakes and turtles and lizards in one corner, stuffed birds of all feathers molting somewhere else. "It's like jellybeans in a jar," producer Mary Parent said of the quantity of prop animals residing in the ark. "If you can guess the right number, you win a prize.

Making a big studio movie when you're the strong-willed independent sort can run you into a lot of sand traps. Filmmakers in that position think studio execs are a bunch of philistines and marketing-minded meddlers, while the execs thinks a director is a stubborn, out-of-touch mule who's never had to sell a ticket in his life. (Both may be slightly right.) Darren Aronofsky and Paramount appear to be enacting that time-honored saga anew. A Hollywood Reporter story says that the director is skirmishing with Paramount over "Noah," the new Russell Crowe-starring biblical epic set for March.

MEXICO CITY - A lot of people think they know what the real story of the movie "Noah" should be. They are likely some of the same people who think they know what the real story of the man Noah is.

Talk about a Holy War. Paramount has taken the unusual step of issuing a press release debunking a survey and a resultant Variety story about the faith-based community's skepticism for the studio's upcoming  tentpole “Noah.” In a fittingly biblical turn, the drama was upped when the group fired back. But neither side seems to be reading entirely from a good book. Here's the back story: On Monday a group called Faith Driven Consumers released a study about the March 28-opening Darren Aronofsky film starring Russell Crowe, noting that “Noah faces rough seas.
