20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for Water for Elephants, which offers more of a glimpse of the story and what the lovers must go through to be together.
The movie is based on the 2006 book by Sara Gruen which reached #1 New York Times Best Sellers list, penned for the big screen by Richard LaGravenese (The Horse Whisperer).
Veterinary school student Jacob (Robert Pattinson) meets and falls in love with Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), a star performer in a circus of a bygone era. They discover beauty amidst the world of the Big Top, and come together through their compassion for a special elephant. Against all odds – including the wrath of Marlena’s charismatic but dangerous husband, August (Christoph Waltz) – Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love.
Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend, Constantine) is directing the feature, which 20th Century Fox will release on April 15, 2011.
