December 29, 2010 ~ Water for Elephants film promotion is in high gear! A new trailer surfaced today (Finnish?) and RPLife posted the link to a HQ Youtube Version… It’s stunning and has added scenes! Screen captures are located in Image Gallery 4!
December 26, 2010 ~ Just wanted to let everyone know that 20th Century Fox has changed the US opening date for Water for Elephants to April 22, 2010… The Hollywood Reporter gave this explanation: “Twentieth Century Fox is taking advantage of a sudden opening on the 2011 Easter calendar, pushing back the release of its animated 3D film Rio from April 5 to April 15, and Water For Elephants from April 15 to April 22. The shifts were prompted after Warner Bros. moved Steve Carell’s Crazy, Stupid, Love from April 22 to July 29. Easter Sunday falls on April 24 in 2011. Rio and Water for Elephants, toplining Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson and Christoph Waltz, are now positioned closer to the holiday.”… I have to say that this makes really good sense and will give WFE a stronger opening weekend…
**Updated** December 15, 2010 ~ It looks like we’ll get to see the full Water for Elephants trailer later today on Apple Trailers!! @20thFoxCC tweeted: “Water for Elephants teaser scheduled to debut on Apple 12/15 end of day” Also yesterday Entertainment Tonight featured a short blurb about WFE… Here are both the video captures via StrictlyRobPattinson.There are also some lovely screen captures over at RobPattinsonLife… Cannot wait for later today!

December 13, 2010 ~ According to an article that Popsugar published today on their website a Water for Elephants preview/teaser/trailer will debut ahead of Reese Witherspoon’s new film, “How Do You Know”, which opens this Friday (12/17/10) ~ Here is an excerpt from the article:
“The movie marks Reese’s return to the big screen for the first time in two years and she has another exciting upcoming release, Water for Elephants, out this Spring. She gushed about working with Robert Pattinson on that project and their first preview will debut ahead of How Do You Know in theaters.” (source)
I hope that we will be able to see it online as well, I will keep you updated!
December 12, 2010 ~ Christmas came early for the Water for Elephants Film Blog via WFE Director, Francis Lawrence: Read all about it here! Also on 12/8/2010 @20thFoxCC (Chris Petrikin) tweeted: “Ok here is some news: #WFE trailer teaser coming next week…will keep you posted… We don’t know how or where the trailer will be presented, hopefully online somewhere?! Will update when I know!
December 7, 2010 ~ The BEST Water for Elephants NEWS yet!! Director Francis Lawrence, @Hibbits, just tweeted “WFE trailer coming very soon…” Hopefully that means in the next few weeks… We’ll post as soon as we know!
December 6, 2010 ~ Reese Witherspoon has had a busy week news-wise. On December 1st she was honored with the 2,425th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. (Click here for video) Reese has been acting for over 20 years and is an Academy Award winning actress for her role as June Carter Cash in the 2005 film “Walk the Line.” Here is a video featuring part of Reese’s speech on December 1st in which she ‘mentions’ Water for Elephants… Congratulations Reese!!
December 1, 2010 ~ The first official Water for Elephants film photo/promo has been revealed in the German magazine, Bravo! (source RobPattzNews) Here is the translation: “New Film Highlights! – Robert Pattinson as the young man in a circus and Selena Gomez as magical princess with a crush. Finally there’s the very first images from the next two movies of the Hollywood stars. The releases, however, are still a long way away: Rob’s lover-story ‘Water for Elephants’ occurs in April 2011 and Sel’s romantic comedy ‘Monte Carlo’ in June. Anticipation!“
November 16, 2010 ~ At long last WFE Director, Francis Lawrence, tweeted this message today: @Hibbits “Back under the big top… Filming animals for the stampede. Good to be back in the circus again.” Apparently he is filming some pick-up shots/re-shoots of this very intense scene… It’s been so long since he’s tweeted anything related to the film, so this is exciting news! This also means that they’re still in the post production/editing phase and that it will probably be a few months (at least) until there is any sort of teaser trailer for the film. On another related note, Algonquin Books tweeted: “Today we’re getting the star-approved photos from FOX for the WATER FOR ELEPHANTS movie tie-in edition”. This means that there will be a film tie-in version of Water for Elephants novel for the film’s release in April 2011… Hopefully there will be more news forthcoming!
