Reactions from the media to the Water for Elephants Trailer

I found some reviews and expectations to the WFE trailer. I´ll also add pictures from How Do You Know Premiere and new Official Wallpapers of WFE soon.

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 (the beau­ti­ful per­former his char­ac­ter, a vet­eri­nary stu­dent in charge of car­ing for a trav­el­ing cir­cus’ ani­mals, falls for dur­ing the Depres­sion) and Christoph Waltz (Witherspoon’s hus­band, the troupe’s ani­mal trainer). Direc­tor Fran­cis Lawrence seems to be chan­nel­ing Tim Bur­ton, and it works. 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.

People Magazine

For­get Bella! Robert Pat­tin­son woos Reese With­er­spoon in the new trailer for the film adap­ta­tion of Sara Gruen’s best­selling novel Water for Ele­phants, which is due in the­aters in April 2011. Pat­tin­son plays Jacob, a vet­eri­nary stu­dent who joins a trav­el­ing cir­cus dur­ing the Great Depres­sion. He falls for the show’s sul­try star Mar­lena (played by With­er­spoon), who’s involved with the Ring­leader, played by Christoph Waltz. “You’re a beau­ti­ful woman, you deserve a beau­ti­ful life,” Jacob tells Mar­lena, but the Ring­leader seems deter­mined to keep them apart. Sounds like a love tri­an­gle of Twi­light pro­por­tions!

Water For Elephants Trailer: Like ‘Titanic,’ but with Robert and Reese

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.

The first thing that occurs to us watching this trailer is that it’s a whole lot like Titanic.. except that the events unfold amid a traveling circus rather than upon a giant ocean liner. Depression-era setting? Check! Love triangle with beautiful woman, overbearing older lover and baby-faced younger suitor? Check! Climactic disaster providing the backdrop for the resolution of all things? Big-time check!

Water for Elephants is told in flashback by the 90-year-old version of Pattinson’s Jacob Janowski, who is taking stock of the experiences of his youthful travels with a Depression-era circus called The Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. Witherspoon plays the object of Jacob’s desire Marlena Rosenbluth, an angelic circus performer with a strange talent for captivating horses — and, as it turns out, men. The only thing standing in the way of these two crazy kids getting together is, well, Marlena’s husband August (Christoph Waltz), a violent animal trainer and one hell of an inglorious bastard.

As in Titanic, R.Patz and R.With’s characters go ahead and get together anyway, with explosive results. And just when you think you know where the story is going, along comes the epic, catastrophic finale to throw you for a loop. But don’t worry — it has nothing to do with an iceberg, an ocean liner, a gargantuan diamond or a girl named Rose.

Water for Elephants is directed by Francis Lawrence of I Am Legend fame and hits theaters April 15.


How Do You Know new TV Spot

The official Twitter of How Do You Know film has just posted another TV Spot and it´s so funny! Check out!

Even an All-Star Cast can’t save How Do You Know

Review in a Hurry: Writer-director-producer extraordinaire James L. Brooks (Terms of Endearment, Broadcast News) knows more about smart comedy than almost anyone on Earth. Lately, however, he seems to have wandered off (Spanglish).

In the horribly titled How Do You Know, Brooks is still wandering despite the great casting of Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson and, for a few scenes, Jack Nicholson.

The Bigger Picture: Washington, D.C. dweller, George (Rudd) is in a downward spiral. He’s being indicted by the federal government for fraud. He’s got a sneaky suspicion that the real culprit is the owner of the company, who is also his father (Nicholson). And his girlfriend just dumped him.

Freaked out and confused, he meets the lovely Lisa, played by Witherspoon, who seems just as confused as him.

Lisa’s a professional softball overachiever and has been cut from the team. As an actress, Witherspoon’s best with roles like this—slowly losing control (Election) and surviving embarrassing situations in a hilarious fashion.

The 180—a Second Opinion: Fans of Reese will still delight; she’s just as good as ever, really shining in the role. And with the cinematography by Stephen Spielberg’s main cinematographer, Januz Kaminski, Reese and Washington, D.C. look gorgeous.

Robert and Reese are magical

Whether you’re a Twihard with a life-sized Edward Cullen cut-out in your bedroom watching you sleep, or all things Twilight make you roll your eyes and stomp your feet, Water for Elephants will probably sway you over to Team Rob Pattinson pretty quick.

In the brand new trailer, Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon sparkle as Jacob (yeah, yeah, have a laugh) and Marlena, a vet and a performer traveling with the circus in the early 20th century. Their love story, told in flashbacks by Jacob at age 93 (Hal Holbrook), is complicated by her husband August (Christoph Waltz).

We’re already a little bit in love with the movie, just from the magical, cinematic feel of the trailer. The colors and the music are delightful, and we’re already looking forward to the performances.

Water for Elephants is set for release on April 15, 2011. Will you be in line at the theater on opening night?
