Now, here’s a curious little thing. The two tiny snippets of Darren Aronofsky’s Noah I shared earlier have now been posted to the Paramount Australia YouTube channel. One has been flagged as an “action” version, the other as “female.”
Okay, action. I can see that. It has action in it. Action things. Explosive stuff and Russell Crowe. He’s a man of action. With an action close-shaved hair cut.
And then there’s that “female” version. Here it is.
Well, this time Emma Watson got to speak. I guess females like Emma Watsons. Jennifer Connelly got a shot of her own. There was a shot of what appears to be hot raining meteors of death, but with the family in silhouette, it looks kinda nice, doesn’t it?
In this version, Crowe has flowing locks. Do “females” like that more?
And, of course, the last shot was of some hand holding.
So, there you go. That’s how you sell a Noah to females.
