Noah premieres in Berlin with Emma Watson and Douglas Booth

Report & Video by Laurie Blake

Floods of film fans gathered in Berlin to see the stars of Darren Aronofsky's latest movie Noah walk the red carpet at the European premiere.

The film stars Russell Crowe as the Biblical figure who built an ark to save his family and pairs of animals from a great flood.

While Crowe was not in attendence at the Berlin screening his co-stars, Emma Watson, Douglas Booth, Logan Lerman and Jennifer Connelly, took plenty of time to speak to fans, sign autographs and do interviews.

"It has just got so many layers," said Emma Watson. "It is really on the one hand this kind of this action film and then it is also this very intimate family drama that plays out. It is also weirdly kind of a road movie. It has kind of a little bit of everything in it, it is really beautifully crafted and really original. And I think, I hope people will love it."

While Emma hopes that people will love the film, it has already been banned in three Arab countries on religious grounds, as depicting holy figures in works of art is frowned upon in Islam.

"I don't think there really is that big of a controversy," said director Darren Aronofsky: "Most of the controversy is about the unknown. I think as soon as people start to see the film, tonight and in the following weeks, the controversy is going to disappear."

Noah opens in Europe on April 3.
