Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon seem like an odd pair, don’t they? I think because she’s usually associated with romantic comedies and he’s got that broody, dramatic, ‘Twilight’ thing going.

He plays a veterinary student who abandons his studies after his parents are killed and joins a traveling circus as their vet.

It’s directed by Francis Lawrence, who directed ‘I Am Legend’ and ‘Constantine,’ and has a slate of upcoming films, including ‘Marco Polo,’ ‘Samson,’ and an ‘I Am Legend’ prequel.

‘Water for Elephants’ is based on the novel by Sara Gruen and also stars Christoph Waltz, Hal Holbrook and Dan Lauria.

Looking forward to this movie? Have you read the book?

Check out the magical trailer after the jump…


  1. I read the book and I didn’t get what all the hoopla was about. I didn’t find it particularly fascinating or special. It was mildly entertaining, but I just didn’t see it as that great. So I probably won’t go see this.

  2. I read the book and really enjoyed it. I suggested it to my husband – who rarely reads anything other than Civil War books – and he loved it as well. Looking forward to this movie for sure.

  3. They are not who I pictured as I read the book, and I usually hate watching movies based on books that I’ve loved. But I just wanted the trailer and I got chills. So I’m thinking I have to see it now. I looks like they filmed it beautifully.

  4. They do seem like an odd pair. I never felt like he had the vampire vibe anyway. I’ll have to wait for your review to figure out whether it’s worth seeing it in the theatre or whether I should wait to see it on DVD.
