Robert Pattinson returns to the big screen with the release of Water for Elephants. MTV News reports that Twentieth Century Fox has moved the release of Water for Elephants back a week, so now it will be released on April 22, 2011.
The date change was apparently prompted by the release date change of Steve Carrell’s upcoming flick Crazy, Stupid, Love from April 22 to July 29, according to MTV News.
The word is that Water for Elephants is Rob’s finest movie yet, and the hunky Twilight star is paired with Reese Witherspoon star in the film adaptation of Sara Gruen’s bestselling novel.
In the trailer, Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon sizzle on-screen as Jacob (a vet) and Marlena (a circus performer) travel with the circus during the Depression-era. The love story is told in flashbacks by Jacob at age 93 (Hal Holbrook). Oscar winner Christoph Waltz costars as Witherspoon’s unbalanced husband, August. The film was scheduled to hit theaters on April 15, 2011.
