International Trailer



From Screen Rant

The combination of LaGravenese’s penchant for adapting melodramatic literature and Lawrence’s brand of visual flair looks to have yielded some nice results, judging by this new theatrical preview.

From MTV

Is it just me or did anyone else get chills when that little girl gasps at the 1:22 mark after Marlena shows off a magnificent horse trick? This is definitely a film we’re looking forward to.

From The Film Stage

I can’t wait to see this if only for the great experience it should deliver in a theater, as hinted at by the wonderful shots and use of color on display.

From Cinema Blend

This international trailer doesn’t show off too much new stuff, but it does expand on the beautiful cinematography we’ve seen accompanying this movie thus far.

From First Showing

We featured the official US trailer for this back in December but I’m happy to feature more because it looks phenomenal, one of my most anticipated in spring.

US Trailer

From Entertainment Weekly

Robert Pattinson looks like a man in the adaptation of Sara Gruen’s best-seller Water for Elephants, acting opposite Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz. The music lures you in, as does the always affecting Hal Holbrook, who plays Pattinson’s aged character recalling the story of “the most famous circus disaster of all time.” The finest compliment you can give a trailer for an adaptation is that it makes you want to read the book. This one does it for me.

From the Washington Post

Featuring grand, hazy-with-nostalgia visuals and shots of Reese Witherspoon looking every inch the old movie star, it’s a feast for the eyes. Of course, a number of people will think said feast is really all about Robert Pattinson, who definitely comes across (appropriately) as less broody and Edward Cullen-ish here.

From Hollywood.com

If we can’t believe in Reese Witherspoon and elephants, what can we believe in? And after listening to the Twilight commentary with Pattinson (yeah, yeah, shut up) that dude has a good head on his shoulder. I think this will be a worthy adaptation.

From Moviefone

Between the ‘Twilight’ ties and acting talent, one would imagine a pretty spectacular trailer sucking in a whole range of potential fans. Instead, the first trailer for ‘Water for Elephants’ manages to show a bunch of the film without showing very much at all of their three leads. It’s a bit of a surprising route to take for a new film. It’s a full trailer showing more than a teaser ever would, yet the only actor to get much of a chance to shine in the scenes captured is the great Hal Holbrook, who plays the older version of Pattinson’s character.

From New York Magazine

This will be the movie that attempts to make elephants sexy.

From People

Forget Bella! Robert Pattinson woos Reese Witherspoon in the new trailer for the film adaptation of Sara Gruen’s bestselling novel Water for Elephants.

From HitFix

The trailer for the screen adaptation of “Water for Elephants” is out, and the proportions of drama are, well, huge.

From MTV

The trailer for “Water for Elephants” has stampeded its way onto the Internet, giving movie fans a beautifully shot look at the adaptation of Sara Gruen’s bestselling novel and its beautiful stars, Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson.

From Eonline

Water for Elephants is awash in period detail, close-ups of Rob’s pretty eyes and Reese’s angelic skin, Big Top razzle-dazzle and, unavoidably, plenty of elephant dung.

From Marie Claire UK

Cue some dramatic sequences, beautifully set scenes, and some serious smouldering on the part of Robert Pattinson. Phew!

From Los Angeles Times

One definite bright spot in the trailer? Hal Holbrook, who plays an older version of Pattinson’s character. We loved the 85-year-old’s performance in “Into the Wild” a few years ago, and it seems his presence here will add weight to the film beyond the romance at its center.

From Daily Mail UK

Reese is glamorous as Marlena with 1930s pin curls and a dazzling array of stage costumes.

From Los Angeles Times (book blog)

Though there’s nothing wrong with watching it on a computer, it looks really fantastic projected in a movie theater (at least it did at the ArcLight, where I saw it this past weekend).

From Film.com

So far, Water for Elephants seems like a cinema circus worth buying a ticket to see.

From The Stir

Water for Elephants has all of the makings of an awesome film: An attractive Reese Witherspoon, a dashingly handsome Robert Pattinson, and an intriguing plot that leaves me wanting more.

From Screen Rant

If Pattinson’s involvement makes all you Twilight haters want to head for the doors, I highly recommend you at least check out the first trailer for Water for Elephants.

Biography

Robert Thomas-Pattinson was born on May 13, 1986, in Barnes, a suburb of London, the capital of England. His mother, Clare, worked for a modeling agency, and his father, Richard, imported vintage cars from the U.S. Robert is the youngest of three kids in the Pattinson family, and the only son. He has two older sisters. Elizabeth is three years older than he is, and Victoria is five years older. Pattinson became involved in amateur theatre through the Barnes Theatre Company. After some backstage experience there, he took on acting roles. He caught the attention of an acting agent in a production of Tess of the D'Urbervilles and began looking for professional roles. Since then he has performed in an amateur version of Macbeth at the Old Sorting Office Arts Centre, as well as trying his hand at modeling. more

Musical career

Pattinson plays guitar and piano, and composes his own music. He also appears as the singer of two songs on the Twilight soundtrack:
"Never Think", which he co-wrote with Sam Bradley,
and "Let Me Sign", which was written by Marcus Foster and Bobby Long.
The soundtrack for the film How To Be features three original songs performed by Pattinson and written by composer Joe Hastings.
