Water for Elephants Movie News

The Water for Elephants movie–starring Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon, and Christoph Waltz–won’t be in theaters until 2011, but ever since filming began on May 20, photos from the set have been popping up everywhere.  The stars clearly have been hard at work; Pattinson is even missing promotional appearances for Twilight Eclipse . Talk about dedication! You can follow the Water for Elephants Film blog for daily updates and new photos.

And behold! We’re giving away three copies of Water for Elephants, along with some choice Twilight paraphernalia (because c’mon, who doesn’t love RPatz?). Want to win? Just post a comment below and on Friday, June 18, we’ll choose three lucky winners at random.

Robert Pattinson and Christoph Waltz

Looking forward to seeing this book on the movie screen! With the people that have been cast, I’m sure it will be an amazing movie and possibly, Oscar nominated.. keeping fingers crossed! Hopefully Rob will continue his winning streak this year and get nominated for an Oscar. Can’t wait for Water for Elephants to hit the big screen!

I read my daughter’s copy of the book a couple years ago and just loved the story. I re-read it again when I heard it was going to be made into a movie – I think the casting is brilliant and I know the movie will be everything I imagine, despite the changes they have to make for the script. I would love a copy of this book – I have given it away as a gift but never bought one for myself!

I loved Water for Elephants and I think Rob is utterly perfect for the role as Jacob. He is the only character that as I was reading I could actually see Rob in my head playing the role. All the others, although I’m sure they will be great in the film, I just made up the images of them in my head. I can’t wait for this film and judging by the pictures it’s going to be one of his very best productions.

Water for Elephants is an awesome story and the movie is going to be brilliant! Top notch cast and crew – the enthusiasm for this project is incredible! I can’t imagine an actor better suited to play Jacob – Robert is perfect! This is the role that will define his career, I can feel it!

I already have the book, but would happily donate it to someone who doesn’t have it already because it is FANTASTIC. I especially love it because my grandmother was a “kinker” during the 1930s, although in New England and having all of her pictures and hearing all of her stories it is so great to see it coming to life with this movie!

Hi! I just want to say ,how much I am looking forward to WFE coming to the big screen. I have read the book and it is amazing. The actors are perfect for their parts. RPattz will be an amazing Jacob, Hall Holbrook is perfect as old Jacob. Then there’s Reese you couldn’t act for a better actrees to play Marlena. I haven’t seen Christoph@ work but I’m sure just by looking at him in his costume, he will be perfect. I love Twilight and would love nothing more to be picked to win this contest! Thank you so much!

Being from Denmark I doubt I’m able to win anything, but one good reason why I should win if I am eligable is, that no contest like this is ever open to anyone but U.S. residents. We always miss out on the cool stuff. And recently I picked up reading again, actually mainly because of Twilight, and I would absolutely love to get my hands on what seems to be an incredible story

I’ve always loved Reese. She’s a great actress. Of course Rob is eye candy but offers to us much more than just his gorgeous face. He’s turned out to be an awesome actor! I really didn’t think I would like his hair cut at first for this movie, but once the pictures started hitting the net, my opinion has greatly changed. I love movies that are made today to portray a setting from the older years, and this one has certainly caught my interest. Not only for the characters, but the animals as well. It will be a hit for sure. I borrowed the book “Water for Elephants” and read it all in one day so I naturally seriously can’t wait for the movie to come out! The book is definitely a keeper and would love to have one for my own and so this is the perfect contest for me to enter! Thanks for having it and crossing my fingers for the win. :)

I fell in love with “Water for Elephants” when I read it, and I think the casting of Rob, Reese, and Christoph was brilliant. I have a very strong feeling that this is going to be a break-out role for Rob, which will catapult him to even more acclaim and popularity! I CANNOT WAIT to see this movie!

I would love to win a book, or any prize.

Ooh! Ooh! Over here! I need a WFE Book! I have been TRYING to get my sister to get it ’cause she loves to read and it is ALL her fault that I am obsessed with Twilight/RPattz ANYWAY!! I avoided it like the plague for over a year, but, although I am late for the party… I am MAKIN’ UP FOR LOST TIME, BABY! So, now it is MY turn to ‘turn her on’ to the awesomeness that IS “Water For Elephants” and the exquisite Mr. Robowski …..

I read this book as soon as it came out and have been recommending it to others ever since. I live near Sarasota, Florida where Ringling’s home and circus museum are. Therefore, we have a lot of circus history here and old buildings, artwork, etc. that remind us of those days gone by. Looking forward to the movie….we all are! :-)

I bought this book and finished it in just a little over a week!! I absolutely loved it and the more photos from the set that get released the more excited I get for this movie! Although, I am a HUGE RPatz fan this story was so amazing and I can’t wait to see it come to life on the big screen. I think Rob, Reese, Chris and the rest of the cast are just the people to do it!!

I would give the books to friends so they can pass it along and so on. I am excited to see Rob in a different role and working with animals. I just adore Rosie and elephants in general.

The movie is going to be brilliant!! Just from the pictures I’ve seen- the colors, scenery, costumes, and casting Rob, Reese, Hal and Christph are going to do this book justice. Can’t wait to see the story brought to life on the big screen. I’ve read the script, all the blogs- as many as I can find and then some. I read the book in a week-end – and what a wonderful story to be told.!! I’ve since been lending out my book :( ….sure would like to read it again…and again. :0…..I’m just like that!!

I am so excited to see the Water for Elephants movie! The book was an amazing read and I am so looking forward to seeing it brought to the life on the big screen. The casting for the movie has been perfect and I am a big fan of RPatz as well as twilight. I wish I lived closer so I could go see the movie set as they are filiming. But Ontario, Canada is a long piece away. Thanks to everyone who has been posting the pics and to the Water for Elephants Kinkers for maintaining such a wonderful site. It brings the set to those of us who can’t be there. Bravo!!!!!

bwen says...

The coverage from the WFE set has been amazing and, I look forward everyday to opening my web browser and discovering what new treats and images have been posted.

I have watched Rob Pattinson with a keen interest in his career since first seeing him in Harry Potter, after which I tried to get DVD’s of anything his has been in as well as any music of his that may have been recorded and found on the internet. The man is truly multi talented and I believe there will be an Oscar in his future.

The fact that to date he chooses roles based on how the characters speak to him and that many are pulled from beautiful pieces of 19th, 20th and 21st century literature some that are well known and others that are not, shows his commitment to quality and not potential box office returns.

He seems very dedicated to honing his craft to satisfy not only the fans but his own high standards, and yet amazingly appears to be unchanged in his view of who he is, what he wants, and how he at least would like to conduct his life.

Water for Elephants is an amazing book full of pathos, and poignant love in the inspirational setting of a circus, which could be looked at as a sad commentary on life in general at the time and yet is still relevant today.

The book is very good, once you start you can not stop reading. The photos come from the set are amazing, Rob is perfect in the role of Jacob. His beautiful smile, her sweetness and simplicity are creating a character that I never thought to see on the big screen.

This movie looks like it’s going to be very good. I’m happy to see Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon working together again.

I’ve never read the book, Water For Elephants but it’s definitely something I will have to pick up next time I’m in a bookstore.

I read the book and loved it!! One of the best books I have read this year! I checked it out of a public library here in Savannah,GA. I wanted to read it again but I had to take it back because there was a waiting list (VERY LONG WAITING LIST)! I would LOVE to win this book so I could read it over and over and pass it on to friends and family!! They picked the right actor to play Jacob because He is so good looking!! I also like Rob because he likes to read!! I am a teacher and love when young people still read after high school!!

When I first heard that Robert, Reese & Christopher (who is an amazing actor) were cast in this movie, I went straight to the library to get the book. It was out & my name has been on the waiting list since. Rob seems the perfect choice to play Jacob J. since he seems to be such a kind soul himself I can only imagine the depth of feelings that he will bring to this character. Thank you for having this contest & I wish us all luck. Even if I’m not selected a winner, I still win – seeing Rob playing a role like this is a Beautiful thing!

Hi.
I read the bbok and fell in love with Jacob.
He is such a sweet and wonderful character.
No sides, just sweet.
He reminds me of my Dad who is a care home resident, but unlike Jacob’s family, we visit every day.
Just wonderful.
I am so looking forward to seeing how this will come onto screen and can see ALL the characters now I know who is playing them. Classic cast.

I have read this book twice and was thrilled when Rob was cast as Jacob and thought ‘OMG’ he IS Jacob this part was made for him he fits the character so well, his youth, good looks, winning smile and personality what woman or ‘elephant’ would’nt or could’nt love him?
He obviously loves making this film because he is absolutely beaming in every picture that i have seen of him – well done to all involved you have hit on a winning formula here with all the main actors and no doubt all the animals too as everyone at any age loves the circus – i can’t wait for it to hit the big screen. Thank You

It’s amazing to see Robert outside of the Twilight madness. He is very talented and it will finally come out with this movie. The book was very moving and quite sad. I have no doubt Robert will play the character of Jacob right to the ‘t’!!

Oh my oh my! I just finished this book and let me tell you I was so blown away by it! The entire time I was reading I invisioned Robert in the part and lets say I could see it really see it. I believe if this movie is done right that this could really do some important things for him, one it could show everyone just how talented he is and how he is not just a vampire (which I loved him as by the way), and second I think this could really be a award part. I am so excited to see this movie…… I can’t wait

I cannot wait for this movie! I check websites daily for updated information on the filming and any photos of the cast. Rob, Reese, Mark and Chris seem perfect for the roles. I read the book quickly the first time because I could not wait to see what happened – could not put it down. Then I re-read a second and third time and picked up on a lot of details that I missed. I love the story, love the characters and if I win, I will share my copy of the book with someone else! Pick me!

Margot says...

A lovely, page-turning book rich in depression-era mood and detail, hopefully lending itself to a film heavier on character than art direction and CG from Director Francis Lawrence. The casting of Reese Witherspoon and Christolph Waltz in their respective roles is nearly too perfect, and Rob Pattinson will likely stretch his acting skills as well as his fan base as our protagonist hero. This film should pop off the screen with ease but it’s my hope that it will stay in our hearts long after our current depression-era ends.

I had to go to the libary to find it fixed income couldn’t get my own copy. So I barrowed it five times and now that the pics are coming out of the movie I need to go back and get it again so I can compare with the book. I have a good memory but if I can read and look at the pictures I can almost see the movie. I would like to win a copy of my own I would read it over and over

Just about finished reading the Twilight series (read all four in less than 4 weeks) – about 200 pp to go in Breaking Dawn – and have become an instant fan of RPatz, so I am very interested in reading anything he’s working on. Since I had my kids, I haven’t been able to read as much as I like, so I forced myself to find time to read all four Twilight books and love reading again! I will definitely read Water for Elephants and look forward to seeing the movie next year. Pick me! :-) Lora S. (Plaistow, NH)

Alexandria says...

I read WFE even before I knew Robert was going to be in it…and believe me, I cast him right away for the role of Jacob…and what a surprise when he was chosen!!!!. Of course, no surprise there: I had already chosen him for Jarred in The Host; for Marco Polo in The Journeyer and whatever movie might come along calling for a devil/angel-ravishing-looking, super nice guy on it; and the photos of the making of the movie: Robert, the kinkers, the choo choo, Rosie…ohhh boy, they could not be more true to the story.
The story was beautiful, different (had read very little about the circus life), so touching, with all those longing feelings of old Jacob.
Being an animal lover, I was suffering as Jacob was, about Rossie, the cats, Queeny, the chimps and orangs; but on top of everything, I was heartbroken with the beautiful love story between those two souls that found each other among such terrible and sad conditions, and during a time when the cost of humane and human life and feelings were so cheap…and at the end, WHAT A WONDERFUL ENDING!!! I cannot wait a minute longer for the movie!!!

WFE is one of those very rare books that our entire book club agreed was a beautiful, magical tale. I literally cannot wait to see it come to life on the big screen. And the casting director(s) nailed it… Christophe as August? Chills! Reese as Marlena? Of course! Hal Holbrook? Perfection! And Robert is becoming one of my favorite young actor along the lines of Ryan Gosling (Half Nelson, Lars and the Real Girl, etc). Really excited to see his portrayal of Jacob.

This was without a doubt, the most wonderful book I have read in a long time. When a gentleman at the book store tried to describe it, he said he would not be able to do it justice, but it was about a man who joins the circus. Well, no, you can’t describe this book. But when I finished reading it, I only wanted more. I had so hoped a movie could be made of this book and I am more that just a little thrilled to see that Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon, and Christoph Waltz will be the stars. This will be an Oscar Movie not to miss. I love the book and can’t wait to love the movie, so pick me. Please.

I must admit, I procrastinated in reading this book a friend had given me. So when I finally picked it up, I was like WOW I love this story! Then low and behold, it’s gonna be a film, and with my favorite Vampire Sweetie and the wonderful Reece Witherspoon as Marlena – even better! Thank you for the great read Sara Gruen!!!!!

I have only gotten to read the book available on Amazon.com due to the fact my work schedule is so hectic, $$ are very tight and I haven’t had an opportunity to see if my small library can order it. Amazon is great to offer a sneek peak, but they skip multiple pages so it really was just a tease. What I did read made me want more. If I am lucky enough to win a copy, I will read it and definitely pass it on for my little book group, as I did all of the Twilight books.

I am trying to find out if filming has finished. If filming only started on May 20, that would be a pretty quick shoot, wouldn’t it? Or, are they giving RPattz time off to publicize Eclipse and they’ll resume filming in July or something. This is an intense story with a lot of action and I can’t believe they could film it in less than a month. Please, will someone enlighten me. I just discovered this site and I, too, believe that RPattz is going to blow us away long after Twilight is just a memory (although I am Team Edward all the way).

CARLY HUDSON says...

I recently read “Water for Elephants” and was blown away by what a beautiful story it is. It is easily one of the best books I have ever read. I read it via e-book so it would be awesome if I could win a hardcopy of the book for the inevitable re-read!

I am a huge fan of Robert Pattinson’s and the entire Twilight saga. I have been eyeing the “Water for Elephants for about a year now and I am so glad that I heard about Robert Pattinson being in the movie and finally decided to pick it up and give it a read. I have been recommending it to all of my friends ever since I finished it, because it is just one of those stories you cannot help but be touched by.

Sarah Gruen is an amazing author– the first two novels of hers that I read were “Flying Changes” and “Riding Lessons.” As incredible as they are, “Water for Elephants” blew me away. Rob Pattinson will do an amazing job in this film. Cannot wait for its release.

The book caught my attention because of the circus and the era where it takes place. My parents were children during the depression and they both spoke lovingly of the circus and what it meant to them.

My father said that there was very little entertainment in those days, radio was very new and movies were mainly geared toward adults. But kids had the circus to look forward to. His sisters liked to tell the tale of my father coming home after seeing the circus doing acrobatics and once, even rode two horses one foot on each while standing up. He told me that he secretly wanted to join the circus.
My mother came from a poor family and she was one of those that tried to peek under the canvas, trying to catch a glimpse of the menagerie.

I loved the story and I love it even more now after seeing who has been cast to play the roles. I for one cannot wait until this film comes out. Everything about the era looks to be authentic. For me it will be like watching the circus through my parents eyes. Wish there were more books like this one!

I am so excited to see this wonderful book come to the big screen, and to have both Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon bring it to life is even better. It’s fun to follow the photos that come out each day and remember the scenes from the book. So far it looks like they are following it quite closely, which is good because it’s a wonderful story about the circus (I learned a lot) and a great love story. Can’t wait to see it on the big screen. I think I’ll go reread it again…

Was at my parents’ during vacations and found the book. didn’t know my father got it ! of course, he didn’t buy it because of Rob lol so, i thought it was my chance to read it ;) maybe that sounds quite ridiculous to read a book because an actor is doing a movie but i don’t care. without this filming, i would never have seen it in my father library. and i’m glad i read it ! it was a great, emotional book. Love the way it is written. can’t wait to see what come up with the movie.

Naturally I’m delighted that Rob is making yet another movie. I’d pay to just watch him sit reading his script of ‘Water for Elephants’!

I would love to read the book especially as I now have visuals for the characters. I’ve been an advocate for the Twilight Saga books and Bel Ami, I’d like to add Water For Elephants to that list too.

Thanks for teasing us all with your competition. *grinning*

When I heard Robert Pattinson was going to be in another movie I was so excited. I started looking for set pictures, etc. While going on several websites I heard that the movie was based on the book by the same name. I was immediately intrigued because I have read wonderful reviews of the book and it is on many peoples reading lists. I purchased the book the other day and I cannot put it down. It is wonderfully written and very desciptive. I feel like I am there with Jacob on his journey. Its starts of with a very sad event and you are immediately emotionally attached to the character Jacob. I am so glad that Robert Pattinson is doing this movie otherwise I might have missed out on this wonderful book. It is a must read.
