Must-see movie: Water for Elephants

Today I stumbled upon these great stills from the film Water for Elephants and just had to share them.

Water for Elephants, a novel by Sara Gruen, was hands-down my favourite book of 2010 (see here). So last year when I heard it was being made into a film, starring Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson as the lead characters, I was ridiculously excited at the prospect of seeing the story come to life.

The movie is now finished and is due to be released in USA in April 2011 and I cannot wait to see it. If you have not read the book, you really should before the film comes out :)

Have you read the book yet? If yes, what did you think?

Note: you can watch the beautiful  trailer for this film over HERE


  1. I think I was on a research trip that had to change dates to accommodate them filming in the reserve that we were working in... now I HAVE to see it!

  2. I totally agree with you, hands down the best book I read in 2010...can't wait for the movie!

  3. No, I haven't read the book. You also recommended Eat, Pray, Love, so I'm not taking your advice any more.

  4. Haven't heard about this yet but loving these pics, looks like a goodie! Happy New Year to you!x

  5. I love elephants & Robert Pattinson & Reese Witherspoon so I'll definitely give this a whirl!! =) Happy New Year!! =)

  6. it's one of my all time favorite books. I even flip through it from time to time just to keep the details attached in place. I can't wait to watch the movie. It is one amazing book and would be disappointed if the movie wasn't as good.

  7. I definitely think I need to read this book before the movie comes out, it seems brilliant.

  8. Really loved this book! I'm excited to see the movie, too. (Though I'll have to get over my aversion to Robert Pattinson. Maybe this movie will accomplish that!)

  9. GREAT POST!!!!!

  11. Hello Brazen. Welcome back & Happy New Year to you!

    Wow, I just watched the trailer and this looks like an amazing movie! And how awesome does Rene look at a platinum blonde?! Stunning!
