'Water for Elephants' trailer: Greatest clip on Earth?

By Jen Chaney

A sneak peek at "Water for Elephants," the film adaptation of Sara Gruen's book club favorite about a Big Top love triangle and a major circus disaster, is now online. And if the clip is any indication, the movie will at least look gorgeous.

Featuring grand, hazy-with-nostalgia visuals and shots of Reese Witherspoon looking every inch the old movie star, it's a feast for the eyes. Of course, a number of people will think said feast is really all about Robert Pattinson, who definitely comes across (appropriately) as less broody and Edward Cullen-ish here.

Me? I was more focused on an enraged Christoph Waltz and the wonderful Hal Holbrook. Oh, and the elephant, who is clearly on track to win an Oscar in early 2012. Have a look.

This was a phenomenal book - I have high hopes for the film.

Agreed, KS8284. My expectations for film recreations of books are usually pretty low, but for this one, they're set VERY high.
