Based on Sara Gruen's best-selling novel, Water for Elephants tells the story of a young man Jacob (Robert Pattinson) wanting to be a veterinarian instead gets involved in a circus and falls in love with the head trainer's (Christoph Waltz) wife Marlena played by Reese Witherspoon. I liked the tone of this trailer, hope it doesn't end up too fanciful. Twilight fans, are you confused that Edward is playing Jacob? It's only a role.
Up next, is the very delayed film, Tree of Life, due to be out for this awards season but instead will release sometime May 2011. From director Terrence Malick, the film stars Sean Penn, Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain. I have no idea what the story or plot looks like, it seems to be about disappointments and expectations or something like that or else I could be totally wrong. A very dreamlike trailer.
Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp are reunited in this out-there animated flick, Rango, and the only traces of the Pirates series character Jack Sparrow that you'll find is Rango's knack of getting into sticky situations just like Sparrow. This is so different that most animated films in the market that its already eagerly awaiting. The more variety the better for animation, I say. The film also has the voice talents of Abigail Breslin, Timothy Olyphant, Isla Fisher, Bill Nighy, Alfred Molina and Ray Winstone.
AND, finally, we do get to see the Jack Sparrow back in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides where this time the quest is for the lost Fountain of Youth! Or is it? Joining him on this quest is a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), an old frenemy Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and a new captain of the Queen Anne's Revenge, Blackbeard (Ian McShane). Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) will be missed for sure but I have a sneaky feeling that they are adding some new younger characters in the film for further movies. Let us see. Meanwhile, enjoy the trailer below!
