Strangely enough, I am just about to head out the door to check out another Reese Witherspoon movie, How Do You Know, as Apple has debuted the trailer for Water for Elephants, her next movie opposite Robert Pattinson (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse).
Richard LaGravenese (The Horse Whisperer) adapted the script from Sara Gruen’s novel of the same name, which tells the Depression Era romance centering on a love triangle involving a veterinary medicine student (Pattinson) who joins a second-rate traveling circus and falls for the star performer (Witherspoon). Christoph Waltz co-stars and will play Witherspoon’s husband, a dangerous paranoid schizophrenic animal trainer who is as mean to his wife as he is to the circus creatures. Thanks to this trailer we also now know Hal Holbrook has a role in the film.
Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend, Constantine) is directing the feature, which 20th Century Fox will release on April 15.
Check out the trailer directly below.
