Uncovering the back story of Jacob Jankowski, this brand new trailer for Francis Lawrence's drama film presents a much darker tone as it unleashes the tension and conflict.
Another trailer for "Water for Elephants" has been made available. Courtesy of Amazon, this brand new promo video offers a sneak peek at the back story of Robert Pattinson's Jacob Jankowski as it opens with scenes wherein the veterinary student learns about the tragic fate of his parents.
This fresh trailer reels in a much darker tone if compared to ones released earlier. Its focus is to give out more of the tension and conflict that come about when the main characters find themselves getting entangled in a love triangle. Though so, it still manages to slip in some romantic moments between Jacob and Marlena.
In addition to the new trailer, a behind-the-scenes video for the drama movie has been shared by Access Hollywood. While most of the scenes featured are similar to those shown in the trailer, this video takes viewers to take a peek at the filming of the scene that sees Jacob and Marlena dancing together.
Directed by Francis Lawrence, "Water for Elephants" follows Jacob Jankowski during the Great Depression. Penniless and recently-orphaned, he parlays his expertise with animals into a job with a second-rate traveling circus, and falls in love with Marlena, one of the show's star performers. But, their romance is complicated by Marlena's charismatic but twisted husband.
Based on Sara Gruen's novel of the same name, this drama film has been set to open wide in theaters across the United States on April 22. It is supported by a cast ensemble that include Reese Witherspoon, Christoph Waltz and Hal Holbrook. Reese plays Marlena, Christoph stars as August and Hal takes the role of the older Jacob.
