Darren Aronofsky's highly anticipated epic “Noah” got off to a thunderous start over the weekend taking in $43.7 million at the box office. While critics gave the “it's sort of the biblical story it's sort of not” flick mostly positive reviews, Cinemascore says moviegoers gave it just a C. Considering how even an average movie will earn an A in Cinemascore's system that's not a great sign for the film's future prospects.
While HitFix's own Drew McWeeny was a fan, the rest of the staff was slightly more mixed on the opus. Sure, the Ark itself was a stunning set piece and there is something remarkable about Aronofsky finally getting a no. 1 movie at the box office, but Noah portrayed as a depressed drunk? Those strangely CG'd Watchers? Or, can we talk about Jennifer Connelly's performance?
