In "Noah," the story follows the title character (Russell Crowe) and his family in the Book of Genesis. Noah hears from God that there is too much wickedness on earth and that He plans to wipe out humanity with a massive flood. But with this news Noah also gets some pretty specific instructions to build an ark which can keep him, his family, (including wife Naameh (Jennifer Connelly), sons Ham (Logan Lerman), Shem (Douglas Booth) and Japeth (Leo McHugh) plus Shem's wife, Ila (Emma Watson)), and hundreds of animals, safe from the flood.
So, on the advice of his grandfather Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins), among others, Noah begins work on this massive ark. He does so however with some resistance, mainly from Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone), who vows to destroy Noah and take control of the ark. This creates quite the difficult situation for Noah who has a huge responsibility on his shoulders.
"Noah" joins theaters already buzzing with other films such as "Blood Ties," the "Veronica Mars" movie, "Need for Speed," "Mr. Peabody and Sherman," "300: Rise of an Empire," "The Grand Budapest Hotel," "Cheap Thrills," "Monuments Men," "Winter's Tale," "RoboCop (2014), "About Last Night," "Vampire Academy," "The Lego Movie," "Gimme Shelter," "I, Frankenstein," "Ride Along," "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," "The Wolf of Wall Street, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues," "Her," "American Hustle," "12 Years a Slave," and "Frozen".
Death by Water
Methuselah: "My father said that one day, if man continued in his ways, the creator would annihilate this world."
Noah: "It may not be averted."
Methuselah: "He speaks to you. You must trust that he speaks in a way that you can understand."
Noah: "I saw water, death by water. Then I saw new life."
Noah and grandfather Methuselah discuss what Noah was told and what he saw, mainly that an apocalypse is coming from a massive flood. As Methuselah urges, Noah believes this and takes it upon him to save his family from this destruction.
A Great Flood Is Coming
Noah: "A great flood is coming! We build a vessel to survive the fall! We build an ark."Noah expresses his intent to save his family and continue the existence of animals. To survive the flood, he will build an ark.

Noah: "We have to protect the innocent."
Tubal-cain: "If you really think you could protect yourself from me…"

The Choice Was Put in Your Hands for a Reason
Ila: "You saw the wickedness of man. I knew you would not look away. The choice was put in your hands for a reason."Ila gives Noah a pep talk and reminds him that he was given this vast responsibility for a reason and he cannot take it lightly.
