Everyone knows the story of Noah’s Ark. Today, the classic Biblical tale hits theaters in movie form with the Russell Crowe-helmed epic, Noah. One thing you can’t get around when it comes to this film is that there’s a lot of water in it. A LOT. And rightfully so. In the story that inspired the film, it rains for 40 days and 40 nights. We’re looking forward to seeing how it all plays out on screen, and so much of that has to be with how seriously Hollywood takes its floods. For the past few decades, a few flicks have stood above the rest in this department. Get familiar with them with our quick list of The Craziest Floods in Movie History. Then watch Noah star Emma Watson talk about being in set with all of that water in the video below.
