Robert Pattinson Breaks Circus Law In New ‘Water For Elephants’ Trailer

When you break a circus law, you pay the circus price. When yo break a circus law, you pay the circus price. And circus court is on a fast-moving circus train. Also: circuses. Here's another trailer for the Robert Pattinson / Reese Witherspoon romantic period drama Water For Elephants. In the trailer, we see that Pattinson's parents both die suddenly, so naturally my first reaction was, "does he become a Batman?" Sadly, no. The would-be doctor joins the circus, makes the wife of the circus boss (Witherspoon) a Team Edward die-hard and trouble ensues. Director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) helmed the adaptation of author Sara Gruen's book. Water For Elephants drives its clown car into theaters April 22nd. Will Twilight fans in theaters scream "Bella" every time Pattinson kisses Witherspoon? It's a risk I'm not interested in taking.

Robert Pattinson Rides Elephants, Reese Witherspoon

Do you like water? Do you like elephants? Do you like that pale dude from Twilight? Well, two out of three ain't bad, so watch this trailer for Water for Elephants, starring Robert Pattinson, Christoph Waltz and Reese Witherspoon. Do you like water? Do you like elephants? Do you like that pale dude from Twilight? Well, two out of three ain't bad, so watch this trailer for Water for Elephants, starring Robert Pattinson, Christoph Waltz and Reese Witherspoon. The film tells the story of an old-timey circus and some dude (Pattinson) who is in love with an elephant (Witherspoon). At least that's what I assume, since I didn't actually watch the trailer. I've been afraid of the circus ever since my parents sold me to one. Wait, a circus is a warehouse where you sew fake Prada handbags, right? Oh. Well just watch this trailer, anyway.


Cathartic News: Robert Pattinson Gets Beaten Up In ‘Water For Elephants’

If you've ever thought, "it'd be fun to beat the sh*t out of Robert Pattinson," you'll be jealous of a few lucky actors cast in 'Water For Elephants.' If you've ever thought, "it'd be fun to beat the shit out of Robert Pattinson," you'll be jealous of a few lucky actors cast in Water For Elephants. Directed by Francis Lawrence’s (I Am Legend), co-starring Reese Witherspoon, Pattinson tells an Entertainment Tonight reporter (ugh) that he's gonna get his sparkly vampire butt kicked in the film. Anytime there's any sort of love scene or anything, I always end up getting beaten up... Our most romantic moment [in the movie] is me getting beaten up by about ten guys. If you can withstand the full-on "glitz" of ET - I literally cringed all the way through - you can see the whole interview above. If you'd rather see Legally Blonde get into a cat fight, that may or may not happen to Pattinson's new love interest in the movie. However, in real life, hundreds of crazy Team Edward tweens are probably waiting for Witherspoon to let her guard down in a parking lot, where they will mercilessly pounce on her, attempt to suck her blood, then get tazed by her bodyguard, who was just in the Starbucks for, like, a second. Below is the synopsis for Water For Elephants, stampeding over Pattinson and into theaters soon. (Collider) Veterinary school student Jacob (Pattinson) meets and falls in love with Marlena (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 (Christopher Waltz) – Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love.


'The Rover' Trailer Takes Us Down Under With Robert Pattinson

It's a story of revenge in dysopian Australia. And no, it's not 'Mad Max'. Robert Pattinson, if for no other reasons than his Twilight involvement and relationship with noted twitchy sourpuss Kristen Stewart, should be a pretty hatable guy. Unfortunately, he seems kind of cool, and recently, he's been making some pretty damn good movies when he should just be coasting on more YA fare. In this trailer for The Rover, he plays half a duo (the other half being actual Aussie Guy Pearce) who set out on the men who wronged them in a very bleak and brown Australian countryside. That might be the same thing as the "outback," but I would feel really foolish if I used "outback" wrong, so we'll just say it's a non-urban Australian location to play it safe.


Trailer For ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ Has It All

Lookin' good, sexy vampires. [post-album postid="209989" item="2"]The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart (whew) is either a movie you have no interest in seeing, or the Second Coming of Christ. Or maybe somewhere in between? Anyway, here's the first trailer for the hotly anticipated sexy married vampires movie, and it's got all the sad eyes and violin music you could ask for. Here's an official plot synopsis, in case the trailer is not enough for your unquenchable thirst: "After their wedding, Bella and Edward travel to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon, where they finally give in to their passions. Bella soon discovers she is pregnant, and during a nearly fatal childbirth, Edward finally fulfills her wish to become immortal.  But the arrival of their remarkable daughter, Renesmee, sets in motion a perilous chain of events that pits the Cullens and their allies against the Volturi, the fearsome council of vampire leaders, setting the stage for an all-out battle." Huh. Here's hoping the fearsome council of vampire leaders forgot to bring their magic swords or whatever. The movie's coming out on November 18, so try not to run afoul of any sexy vampires and/or werewolves before then.


'Hot Pursuit' Takes Us Through Texas With Sofia Vergara, Reese Witherspoon, And A Convertible

Just like in my fantasy. It's not hard to buy Reese Witherspoon as an uptight cop nor is it hard to pull out some casual profiling and buy Sofia Vergara as a drug dealer's widow. So now that we won't have to suspend much disbelief in for the film, we can kick back and enjoy the trailer for Hot Pursuit, a Midnight Run-type action comedy that has Reese protecting Sofia as they're hunted by bad dudes. Reese Witherspoon hasn't made such an overt reach towards comedy that wasn't romantic in nature, so it could be interesting. I always thought she would make a good Joker, but that's mostly just because of her jawline. And Vergara is comedy gold, so let's hold out hope that this doesn't just tread familiar ground from the Feig-o-Verse.


Vampires And Werewolves Fight Colonial Ghosts Or Something In 'Breaking Dawn - Part II' Trailer

The long wait pays off. After this, no more 'Twilight'. A longer look at last week's trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part II is now available to view and fans shou-- WHAT?! Kristen Stewart just tackled a mountain lion in mid-air. Totally T-boned it, too!! I always thought these movies were about whispering and ab muscles. Had I known there would be big cat wrestling, I'd have made an effort to see them. Also of note, Robert Pattinson punches the ground and breaks it and it looks like there's heavy amounts of karate. All kidding aside, those things are normally very awesome. But here they just look super cheap. Don't these movies make all the money? Any chance they could invest more into the special effects and white powder make-up on Michael Sheen? He looks like a Scooby Doo villian.


Boot Knockin', Werewolf Fights, And Bad Burritos In 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 1' Trailer

Bella learns the consequences of buying hot meals at the gas station. It's every young husband's nightmare -- after getting your wife pregnant during the honeymoon, your super-genes cause the baby to grow at a rapid rate and it is born within a matter of days, thus killing the mom. C'mon guys, we've all thought about it. That's exactly what happens to Robert Pattinson in the new trailer for Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 1. Also, looks like we get a rumble between vampires and werewolves. If you're into the imagery of gaunt art school students suplexing over-sized wolves, you'd better get yourself a ticket, because this is the movie for you.
