Water for Elephants Trailer

I don't know if I picked that circus, but something told me that circus picked me. Fox has debuted another full-length trailer in New Zealand for Francis Lawrence's Water for Elephants adaptation, but thanks to YouTube (via SlashFilm) we've got it for your viewing pleasure. This period drama stars Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon, Christoph Waltz, James Frain & Hal Holbrook. It's about a veterinarian who joins a circus and falls in love, with both a girl and the job. We featured the official US trailer for this back in December but I'm happy to feature more because it looks phenomenal, one of my most anticipated in spring.

Watch another new international trailer for Francis Lawrence's Water for Elephants:

A veterinary student abandons school after his parents are killed and joins a traveling circus as their vet.

Water for Elephants is directed by Austrian-born filmmaker Francis Lawrence, of action flicks Constantine and I Am Legend. The screenplay was written by Richard LaGravenese (Soderbergh's Liberace, P.S. I Love You, Freedom Writers, Beloved, The Horse Whisperer, The Bridges of Madison County, Little Princess, The Fisher King). It's based on Sara Gruen's highly acclaimed and beloved novel of the same name published in '06. Fox is bringing the highly anticipated Water for Elephants adaptation to theaters starting April 22nd.

    The additional footage does not give away too much and makes me even more excited for the film.

    I'm a little timid due to Francis Lawrence...but both trailers are wonderful and the story looks quite good.

    I think this proves how important music selection is for movies, this song "Please Don't Go" by Barcelona makes this trailer twice as good in my opinion and can have a huge effect on the quality of films. Music = underrated
    • while i agree with you on this point entirely, I do have to say that the recent development of relying heavily on a musical score to manipulate the emotions of the viewers says one of two things: general audiences are no longer able to be moved by visual action alone, or that its only the next inevitable step in entertainment tech

    Christoph has to find a role where he dosn't play a bastard one day. ^^
