The Water For Elephants trailer, starring Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz, has finally been released!
A couple of weeks ago we brought to your attention the first pictures from this highly anticipated flick, and now we can sit back and enjoy an entire trailer for what is certainly looking to be a promising film.
Water for Elephants is based on the historical novel of the same name by Sara Gruen. Our favourite vampire has branched out to play veterinary student Jacob Jankowski, who joins a travelling circus during the Great Depression.
He meets the beautiful equestrian performer, Marlena (played by Reese Witherspoon), who he begins to fall in love with, despite the fact that she is married to the abusive animal trainer, August (Christoph Waltz).
The story of the film is re-told from the perspective of a much older Jacob, played by Into the Wild‘s Hal Holbrook, who reminisces from a nursing home, where he now lives, about the time he spent with the circus.
Water For Elephants comes from film director Francis Lawrence, whose slightly surprising past credits include the likes of Constantine and I Am Legend, so it looks like this could be new territory for both him and the lovely R-Patz. Although whether the love-triangle scenario and significant amounts of sexy smouldering that we’ve seen so far will help distance Pattinson from his Edward Cullen character remains to be proven…
Water For Elephants hits UK cinemas on 22nd April – it’s fair to say we’re a little bit excited.
