I wonder if this movie will attract the audience it wasn’t meant to attract due to one of the movies main stars but if your a fan of the Sara Gruen book and name of this movie WATER FOR ELEPHANTS do you want to really sit for about 2 hours with Screaming Twihards looking for a glimpse of Edward Cullen? Movies of all adaptations do want to attract new fans simply because if they enjoy the movie it’ll get them to buy the book (s) but with actors of very popular movie franchises they do tend have a hardcore following of fans who go to everything he or she is in. A few years ago when the first Twilight movie came out I worked at a cinema and every week we got some free passess so I decided to see what all the fuss was about and check out all the Twilight movie. Apart from the parents I was probably one of the oldest in the screen (then I was only 31!) and every time R Pattz or Taylor Lautner on the screen these teeny girls scream liked they were at a pop concert for Westlife or some other manufactured band, it was crazy.
Fingers crossed the true fans of the book or movie fans curious to watch this movie wont be scared away from going. Fox Pictures have sent us this new third international (uk) trailer which shows more of the intense, emotional side of the movie and if Robert Pattison is trying his best to get rid of the Twilight connection and move on Water For Elephants could the movie to help him move on. Also check out the new images from the movie too which show a little more of Pattison character’s animal side .
Based on the acclaimed bestseller, WATER FOR ELEPHANTS presents an unexpected romance in a uniquely compelling setting. Veterinary school student Jacob meets and falls in love with Marlena, 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 — Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love.
