20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for Water for Elephants, the adaptation of the Sara Gruen novel of the same name directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend). Robert Pattinson stars “a penniless and recently-orphaned veterinary school student [who] parlays his expertise with animals into a job with a second-rate traveling circus.” He falls in love with one the star performers (Reese Witherspoon), who unfortunately happens to be married to an unbalanced ringleader (Christoph Waltz). Watch the new trailer after the jump.
The new trailer showcases a lot of new footage not seen in the first trailer or this international trailer. I really like the look of the production design. Water for Elephants has the potential to be a nice surprise when it opens April 22.
“You do right by me, I’ll show you a life most suckers can’t even dream of.”
During the Great Depression, Jacob, a penniless and recently-orphaned veterinary school student, parlays his expertise with animals into a job with a second-rate traveling circus. He falls in love with Marlena, one of the show’s star performers, but their romance is complicated by Marlena’s husband, the charismatic but unbalanced circus boss.
