Robert Pattinson, in an effort to shed his sparkly image, has decided to go the weird route for his career. He will play the carnival veterinarian. Also under the big top, we have Reese Witherspoon not playing someone’s girlfriend/wife/love interest. Ok, I take that back. She does play Pattinson’s love interest, but this time, she’s a carnie!
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 (Reese 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 (Christoph Waltz)– Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love.
Oh snap, Christoph Waltz is gonna be angry. He’s exceedingly good at that. I hope the elephant is worth your testicles, Pattinson. That’s the price you pay for taking his woman.
