20th Century Fox has released the trailer to Robert Pattinson’s next movie WATER FOR ELEPHANTS which also co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz! The film is adapted from a book of the same name by Sara Gruen who originally wrote the novel for National Novel Writing Month. Looks like a book I might be picking up very soon seems to me a pretty great story!
Based on the acclaimed bestseller, WATER FOR ELEPHANTS presents an unexpected romance in a uniquely compelling setting. Veterinary school student Jacob meets and falls in love with Marlena, a star performer in a circus of a bygone era. They discover beauty amidst the world of the Big Top, and come together through their compassion for a special elephant. Against all odds — including the wrath of Marlena’s charismatic but dangerous husband, August — Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love.
