More Robert Pattinson for you all today, and this is our first real look at his leading role in Francis Lawrence’s adaptation of Sara Gruen’s novel Water for Elephants via Apple.

Literally running away to join the circus Pattinson finds himself drawn to life on the road and then into the middle of a marriage at the heart of the circus between Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz.

I wasn’t sure about this one before today but there’s a Tim Burtonesque touch to this trailer, I’m thinking specifically of Big Fish, and I’m a fan of the visuals on show, and Christoph Waltz? Come on, this is an easy one to like.

Synopsis fans will never forget this one,

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, 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 — Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love.
