The new trailer shows how Pattinson's character of a veterinary school student loses his parents and lands a job in a traveling circus.
Amazon has exclusively debuted a new trailer for "Water for Elephants" on March 3. It has new scenes showing Robert Pattinson's Jacob who receives a bad news about his parents' death during his exam and how he ends up working with a traveling circus.
Access Hollywood has also gotten its hand on a new sneak peek video to the April 22 release. It mostly features scenes included in the trailer but also shows the making of Jacob and Reese Witherspoon's Marlena's dancing scene.
Based on bestseller book by Sara Gruen with the same title, "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.
Francis Lawrence serves as a director while Richard LaGravenese writes the script. Oscar-wnning actor Christoph Waltz joins the cast ensemble as August.
