The Improper : Robert Pattinson's Fierce Intensity Boils Water

>> 2011/03/06

Robert Pattinson’s upcoming 20th Century Fox film, “Water for Elephants” with Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz showcases his emotional intensity on screen unlike he was unable to do as Edward Cullen in “Twilight.” Just check out 20 screen captures from the new trailer.

The photos were culled from the 2:27 minute clip that focuses extensively on Rob from various scenes in the movie.

His piercing blue eyes are clearly evident; no more amber colored vampire contact lenses!

His eyes alone convey a lot of emotion, but framed in his angular face, he exudes passion, pain and delight as his character learns of the death of his parents and moves through the movie.

There has been some talk that Water could land Rob his first Oscar nomination.

It’s way too soon to speculate, but he looks fierce in the trailer, which can’t be fully appreciated without looking at the stills.

The story centers on a 90-year-old man (Hal Holbrook/Pattinson) who reminisces about his life during the Great Depression, the one in the 1930s, not the most recent economic downturn.

The man, a veterinary student at the time, tells of his experience finding work at a B-level circus taking care of the animals.

He sees the brutality of circus life while falling for the wife (Witherspoon) of the ringmaster, an abusive animal trainer (Waltz).

The movie is directed by Francis Lawrence (“I Am Legend,” “Constantine”) based on Sara Gruen’s best-selling book.

Lawrence gives the film a smoky and at times ethereal feel as Rob sets off in the world, discovers the circus’s cruelties an
d falls for the beautiful wife of its ringmaster.

“Water for Elephants” was shot in Ventura County, Calif. last summer.

The film is scheduled to hit theaters on April 22nd, in limited release.

Mann Theatres in Los Angeles has slated the “Water for Elephants” premiere on April 14 at Grauman’s Chinese, but the date isn’t set in stone.

Rob is still filming “Breaking Dawn” for Summit so the date is not locked it in, the studio said on its facebook page.

“We obviously want everyone there, so nothing is final at this time. We promise, as soon as we lock in a premiere we will let you know!” it added.

The London premiere is set for May 3, but no located has been picked yet, according to the site

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
