This week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly has a “First Look” at 20th Century Fox’s Water for Elephants, starring Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz and directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend). Based on Sara Grue’s novel, Witherspoon plays horse trainer and former circus performer Marlena, while Pattinson plays a veterinarian named Jacob who falls in love with her.
Most of EW’s “First Look” is taken up by a large picture of Pattison snuggling with the film’s true star, the 4.5 ton elephant Rosie, which you can see below. (Click on it for a larger version.) The other two smaller pictures feature Reese Witherspoon and Pattinson in embrace, and another one with Reese and Waltz, who plays her husband August. Hopefully we’ll have good quality versions of those other pictures soon.
Water for Elephants is scheduled for release on April 22, 2011.
