The fervor about "Noah" isn't just limited to religious leaders, cultural watchdogs and film critics. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wife Brittany were so excited about seeing the film that they showed up to an advance screening of the Darren Aronofsky film this weekend in full costume.
While Brees sported a foil-covered axe on his belt, Brittany had a baby doll, possibly the youngest survivor of the Flood, tucked into her shawl.
The Super Bowl champion, who talks about his faith in Jesus in the FCA video below, is so beloved in New Orleans for his on-field play and service to the community that fans nicknamed him "Breesus."
Brees eschewed Scriptural debate and reviewed the Biblical epic as "Very intense!"
