Recensioni positive per il primo trailer di water for elephant… compresa quella…di Sara Gruen

by on dic.17, 2010, under Interviste

il trailer di water for elephant è il terzo trailer più commentato in rete fonte box office e quello con la percentuale più bassa di commenti negativi (l’1 per cento circa)

E incredibile ma vero, le principali testate americane hanno già recensito a tempo di record il trailer con commenti assolutamente positivi, sia sul trailer stesso sia sugli attori, Pattinson compreso (source: Thinking of Rob )

Enter­tain­ment Weekly:

Robert Pat­tin­son looks like a man in the adap­ta­tion of Sara Gruen’s best-seller Water for Ele­phants, act­ing oppo­site Oscar win­ners Reese With­er­spoon (the beau­ti­ful per­former his char­ac­ter, a vet­eri­nary stu­dent in charge of car­ing for a trav­el­ing cir­cus’ ani­mals, falls for dur­ing the Depres­sion) and Christoph Waltz (Witherspoon’s hus­band, the troupe’s ani­mal trainer). Direc­tor Fran­cis Lawrence seems to be chan­nel­ing Tim Bur­ton, and it works. The music lures you in, as does the always affect­ing Hal Hol­brook, who plays Pattinson’s aged char­ac­ter recall­ing the story of “the most famous cir­cus dis­as­ter of all time.” The finest com­pli­ment you can give a trailer for an adap­ta­tion is that it makes you want to read the book. This one does it for me.

Peo­ple Mag­a­zine:

For­get Bella! Robert Pat­tin­son woos Reese With­er­spoon in the new trailer for the film adap­ta­tion of Sara Gruen’s best­selling novel Water for Ele­phants, which is due in the­aters in April 2011.  Pat­tin­son plays Jacob, a vet­eri­nary stu­dent who joins a trav­el­ing cir­cus dur­ing the Great Depres­sion. He falls for the show’s sul­try star Mar­lena (played by With­er­spoon), who’s involved with the Ring­leader, played by Christoph Waltz.  “You’re a beau­ti­ful woman, you deserve a beau­ti­ful life,” Jacob tells Mar­lena, but the Ring­leader seems deter­mined to keep them apart. Sounds like a love tri­an­gle of Twi­light pro­por­tions!

MTV Movies Blog:

The trailer for “Water for Ele­phants” has stam­peded its way onto the Inter­net, giv­ing movie fans a beau­ti­fully shot look at the adap­ta­tion of Sara Gruen’s best­selling novel and its beau­ti­ful stars, Reese With­er­spoon and Robert Pat­tin­son. (…) Depression-era set­ting? Check! Love tri­an­gle with beau­ti­ful woman, over­bear­ing older lover and baby-faced younger suitor? Check! Cli­mac­tic dis­as­ter pro­vid­ing the back­drop for the res­o­lu­tion of all things? Big-time check!


It really is a lik­able trailer: The pro­duc­tion design and cin­e­matog­ra­phy look great, the actors look great; hell, even that ele­phant looks pretty sharp. And with Sara Gruen’s much-loved best seller as the source mate­r­ial, it ini­tially seems like an an unstop­pable package.

Wash­ing­ton Post:

‘Water for Ele­phants’ trailer: Great­est clip on Earth? 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.

Wall Street Jour­nal:

Robert Pattinson’s non-”Twilight” resume gets another addi­tion with “Water For Ele­phants,” a film set in a Depression-era cir­cus and based on the best­selling novel by Sara Gruen. Pat­tin­son plays oppo­site cir­cus per­former Reese With­er­spoon, a cast­ing deci­sion that isn’t in the Oscar-winning actress’s favor, judg­ing by the trailer. Pat­tin­son is so baby-faced that he makes the still young and fetch­ing With­er­spoon look like she’s rob­bing the cra­dle. Oscar win­ner Christoph Waltz co-stars as Witherspoon’s unbal­anced hus­band August. The film will hit the­aters on April 15, 2011.

ma il commento più divertente è… della stessa Sara Gruen, autrice del libro Water for Elephant (Acqua agli elefanti, Neri Pozza editore) che in un messaggio twitter al regista del film ha scritto dopo avere visto il trailer, quello che criverebbe ognuna di noi: ovvero “non vedo l’ora!!!”

    non vedo l’ora, come tutte voi. spero tanto che questo film porti a robert il consolidamento della sua carriera al di fuori di twilight e che la critica, e gli spettatori, riescano ad andare oltre twilight e vedere la bravura di robert. il trailer promette molto bene, il film credo che non ci deluderà. che splendida immagine, mi sembra di essere tra le pagine del libro…
