NOAH'S Ark is about to land on our shores with Russell Crowe on board.

The actor, who is no stranger to our country, is arriving in Dublin for the Irish premiere of biblical film, Noah.

However, it is a case of any port to publicise a film premiere as Crowe will be journeying to Edinburgh and Cardiff, also on Saturday, for the production.

The Irish premiere will take place at Dublin's Savoy Cinema around midday.

Once Crowe has signed a sufficient amount of movie posters and posed for photos with fans, he will jump aboard and fly across the Irish Sea where Scottish and Welsh fans await him.

Last week, Crowe suggested an Irish premiere was on the cards when he asked his Twitter followers to send messages to Paramount Pictures, requesting an Irish screening.

TWEETS

The non-stop tweets paid off and Paramount, who produced the €94m film, confirmed Crowe will be attending the Dublin premiere.

Crowe visited Limerick more than 10 years ago for a tribute to his late friend, the actor Richard Harris.

Noah is being billed as the world's "original disaster story" and is whipping up a storm of controversy.

It was banned by the Indonesian Film Censorship Board, who claimed they were responding to the values of a society "which highly respects religion and the value of unity".

BANNED

The movie has already been banned in the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Bahrain.
