Changing the subject from How Do You Know to Water For Elephants for a few minutes, news has emerged that the first official teaser trailer for Water For Elephants will debut in cinemas this Friday before How Do You Know. Entertainment Tonight will show a teaser tonight, and last night showed a teaser of the teaser…
A new photo from Water For Elephants was published in a recent issue of German magazine ‘Bravo’, and a scan of it has now hit the web! In the still we see Jacob and Marlena in an embrace, with Marlena wearing an elegant black dress and Jacob in a scruffy shirt.
Actress marvels at the ‘fervor’ around her ‘Water for Elephants’ co-star.
Reese Witherspoon became a household name in the late ’90s with a string of scene-stealing turns in films like “Pleasantville” and “Election.” Around the same time, Leonardo DiCaprio was transforming from teen heartthrob to mature Hollywood A-lister, thanks to the nearly $2 billion success of “Titanic.”
Over a decade later, Witherspoon has been thinking back to that pop culture period. It’s the only way she can make sense of the overwhelming popularity of her “Water for Elephants” co-star Robert Pattinson.
“The only thing I can compare it to is when Leo was in ‘Titanic,’ ” she told MTV News while promoting her upcoming movie “How Do You Know.” “It was that kind of fervor about a person. The women lining up outside the set — it was just unbelievable — till 5 o’clock in the morning waiting to just glimpse him.”
The Tennessee set of “Water for Elephants” was basically no different than what happens when the “Twilight” vamp goes anywhere. As director Francis Lawrence told us in the fall, “[E]very day there would be, like, 50 people [staked out] … . [T]here would be people camped out in the hallways of our hotel. All day, all night long, it didn’t matter. People were there to try to catch a glimpse.”
Witherspoon, of course, got an up-close-and-personal glimpse of RPattz, and she was happy to report back to us: “He is extraordinarily attractive. I’m not gonna lie,” she said.
“Robert is such a great guy from a great family,” she explained. “That’s the thing that’s so funny. He’s not really this bad boy; he’s just a great guy and really worked hard on ‘Water for Elephants.’ He really worked long hours, long days. He looks totally different in the movie.”
As a circus performer in the 2011 drama Water for Elephants, Reese Witherspoon gets in the ring with her film paramour, movie veterinarian Robert Pattinson.
“I’m not gonna lie. He’s a very, very handsome man,” Witherspoon tells USA TODAY’s Donna Freydkin.
The two had co-starred in the 2004 costume drama Vanity Fair. And yes, times have changed for Pattinson, who’s now a reluctant heartthrob thanks to the blockbuster Twilight movie series.
“The fervor and madness and girls waiting at 5 a.m. on a set in the middle of nowhere just to see him,” recalls Witherspoon, of their shoot. “He’s sweet and loving and has the nicest family. Kristen (Stewart, Pattinson’s girlfriend) is really sweet, too. He’s a very sensitive soul. He worked really hard. He looks great in the movie, too.”
Her daughter Ava, 11, met Pattinson, but wasn’t smitten because she hasn’t read the books yet. Witherspoon thought she was too young. “I really liked them, me and all my 30-year-old friends! I love the books,” she says.
As for Witherspoon, does she have it written into her contracts that all her costars have to be hunky males?
“I do. How did you find that out? Someone’s gotta do it. It’s like America’s Test Kitchen, but for making out with hot co-stars. I do it for the girls. I love my job. They’re all really good guys. And I know all their girlfriends,” she smiles.
Reese will be receiving her Star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame later today, but before that event starts, I have a couple of other updates for you.
Last week the first official photo from Water For Elephants was released, and it shows all 3 main characters – Reese as Marlena, Robert Pattinson as Jacob, and Christoph Waltz as August. This image appears to be some kind of poster or flyer to announce the release of movie tie-in versions of the book, a paperback of which will be released at the beginning of March 2011. Read more further down this post below the image preview.
We also have an official synopsis for the film:
As a young man, Jacob Jankowski (Robert Pattinson) was tossed by fate onto a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. It was the early part of the great Depression, and for Jacob, now ninety, the circus world he remembers was both his salvation and a living hell. A veterinary student just shy of a degree, he was put in charge of caring for the circus menagerie.
It was there that he met Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), the beautiful equestrian star married to August (Christoph Waltz), the charismatic but twisted animal trainer. And he met Rosie, an un-trainable elephant who was the great gray hope for this third-rate traveling show. The bond that grew among this unlikely trio was one of love and trust, and, ultimately, it was their only hope for survival.
Water For Elephants is currently scheduled for release in the US on April 15th 2011, and in the UK a week later on April 22nd.
The online movie site Box Office Mojo has reported that the release date for the new movie “Water for Elephants” will be April 15, 2011. This is the initial release date and dates can sometimes change for competitive reasons and for film delays.
Channel 3 has learned actor Robert Pattinson will be in Chickamauga, GA and Chattanooga to film beginning and ending scenes for the film. According to mahalo.com, the story follows Jacob Jankowski (played by Pattinson) who was a veterinary student in his youth. In the movie, Jacob is an elderly man recalling the experiences of his youth working for the Benzini Brothers circus. As part of the traveling group, Jacob was put in charge of taking care of the animals. During his tenure he forms bonds with Marlena (played by Reese Witherspoon) and Rosie. Marlena was a performer who was married to a deranged animal trainer and Rosie was a troubled elephant that the circus was desperate to have trained. The three’s companionship proved a vital factor in surviving the hardships of life on the road with the immoral circus troop.
Based on information Channel 3 obtained from sources close to the film, Reese Witherspoon does not have any scenes planned for the area. Pattinson is expected to be in town Friday and possibly a part of Saturday.
Photos of Reese on the set of Water For Elephants on Friday have been added to the Gallery! Reese is looking stunning in another gorgeous gown, this time a white one. I’ve also added 19 more HQs from the July 2nd set photos. Enjoy!
Reese is still hard at work on the set of Water For Elephants in California, and this week has been looking completely stunning in a gorgeous red dress and a classic 1930’s hairstyle. It also looks like she’s filming a love scene with Robert Pattinson. HQs have been added to the Gallery!
Many news sources are reporting on Robert Pattinson having cut his hair (shocking!), and on a recent appearance on the Ellen Show, he confirmed it was for Water For Elephants. He also stated that work on the film starts today – May 20th – in Los Angeles, and photos can be seen at Celebrity-Gossip.net of him on the set today. No sign of Reese yet, but I will keep my eyes out and post the first set photos as soon as I find any! Feel free to post a comment here if you come across any.
‘It’s about a circus in the 1930s based on a book called Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon’. – Robert Pattinson on Water for Elephants
EDIT: I’ve been looking for more details, and come across a video of Reese talking about the project, and a further quote from Robert Pattinson.
“It’s set in the Depression era, when circuses traveled by train and this guy runs away and jumps on a train to be a hobo and by accident, he doesnt realize it’s a circus train. He becomes part of this world because he has no life to go back to and ends up falling in love with the ringmaster’s wife, played by Reese Witherspoon. The ringmaster just happens to be kind of a schizophrenic as well. He’s a most charismatic and terrifying person. He’s Christoph Waltz from Inglourious Basterds. I did a read through yesterday with him. He was sitting right next to me. It was a little terrifying.” – Robert Pattinson
