There are some pretty big luxury yachts docked in South Florida, but none of them are arcs, which is just as well, cuz who wants a pair of lamas perpetuating the species on your $35 million boat? But bringing Noah's Arc to life was a modern day miracle.

He wasn't kidding. Forget the dazzling special effects, it's a real arc that brings "Noah" to life from the Bible to the big screen.

Louis: "They actually built this arc for you guys?"

Ray Winestone: "It was quite incredible."

Louis: "That's impressive."

Ray Winestone: "Its big and all."

Russell Crowe: "The first time I came around the fields over there for the exterior arc you see it lifting out of the ground and you see it in picture and all, but jeeze it was an experience."

Director Aronofsky wanted to keep it real so real he actually recreated the arc that God commanded Noah to build as described in the Book of Genesis.

This is how you are to build it: The arc is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. So make yourself a an arc of gopher wood.

Louis: "Where did you find gopher wood?"

Darren Aronofsky: "Well that was the one thing where we didn't know what gopher wood was there's a lot of interpretations of what that is."

In the movie, forrest of cypress trees provide the wood in real life, the crew went to Home Depot, wait, Home Depot has gopher wood?

Logan Lerman: "The arc was mind blowing."

Russel Crowe "Number one, I thought the exterior of the set was amazing and then I saw the interior, oh man."

Darren Aronofsky: "I wanted an arc that the actors could work with to understand the scale because there were so many miracles in the film that were digitally brought to life."

Louis: "That becomes a character in the film?"

Darren Aronofsky: "Yeah. Absolutely the arc does the arc is major character"

Jennifer Connelly: "The arc is not the arc we see most traditionally, but is the arc that we read about in the Bible and its pretty spectacular."

Logan Lerman: "We constantly have visitors coming. I'd be having friends over."

Louis: "Check this out this is so cool."

Logan Lerman: "Just to walk in was like an amusement park."

So get ready for a wild ride of Biblical proportions.

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.
