20th Century Fox New Zealand has released a new international trailer for Water For Elephants. Robert Pattison fans everywhere rejoice! Everyone else rejoice too, it actually look very good.

Based on the novel by Sara Gruen  the movie is set during the Great Depression and follows the story of a veterinary student who looks after the animals of a travelling circus.

Pattison plays the vet to be, with Reese Witherspoon a woman he meets called Marlena, and the always brilliant Christopher Waltz her rather bizarre husband.  The whole show is directed by I Am Legend helmer Francis Lawrence.

Water For Elephants is released April 22nd, 2011.


Veterinary school student Jacob (Pattinson) meets and falls in love with Marlena (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 (Christopher Waltz) – Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love.
