VIDEO: See Russell Crowe in First ‘Noah’ Trailer

Hollywood gets Biblical with Darren Aronofsky's upcoming Russell Crowe vehicle Noah, and all I can say is that they seem to have gone overboard with the CGI.

From the looks of the trailer - which sees Crowe sporting a lumberjack beard and an ark that looks more like a wooden shipping container than an actual ship - Aronofsky has basically made a Passion of the Christ version of The Day After Tomorrow. Perhaps this is why Christian and Jewish audiences haven't received the film well at early test screenings - one Christian writer, Brian Godawa, got a hold of the script and went so far as to brand it dissapointing, "manipulative narcissistic nonsense." The director - whose last film Black Swan earned one Oscar and four other Oscar nods - has been unsurprisingly dismissive of the studio's concerns over the test screenings.

Box Office Breakdown: Portman Scores with Kutcher and Kunis

No Strings Attached

Pair with a star from That 70’s Show and what do you get? A Top Ten film.

No Strings Attached – last weekend’s only new wide release – topped the box office with a $19.6 million bow. The film, which features Portman and Ashton Kutcher, gave Natalie – someone who has avoided romantic comedies -- her best debut since 2006’s V for Vendetta.

As for Black Swan, Portman’s film with 70’s Show actress – that film slipped one notch down to sixth place over the weekend. You can expect a possible boost for the thriller after Oscar nominations are announced Tuesday morning.

Box Office Breakdown: No Dilemma for The Green Hornet

Green Hornet

, starring Seth Rogen and Jay Chou, brought in a lot green for Sony this weekend. Although the film came nowhere near its $110 million budget, Hornet did earn enough ($33.5 million) to make it the second-best grosser ever during the MLK Jr. holiday frame. (Cloverfield earned $40.1 million over its first three days in 2008.)

Despite the combined comedic forces of Vince Vaughn and Kevin James, turned out to be more of a non-issue. The Universal entry -- which cost $70 million to produce -- failed to even crack the $20 million mark. That's the worst debut for Vaughn since 2007's Fred Claus and the worst open for James ever (if you don't count the films he only voiced).

Box Office Breakdown: Meatballs Rolls to Another Victory

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

was no substitute for meatballs.

Despite competition from a Bruce Willis film, a music-based remake and a sci-fi horror entry, remained the theatergoers’ order of choice for the second week in a row. The children’s book adaptation had Sony dining to the tune of $25 million—over $10 million more than the second place finisher.

Many thought Willis, who hasn’t had a major role since 2007’s Live Free or Die Hard, was on track to take first this weekend. Unfortunately, his

hair

movie was considered a big letdown given its $15 million gross and $80 million budget. Meanwhile, , a remake of the 1980 hit, had no one feeling like they wanted to live forever. The MGM feature only rung up $10 million for third place.
