Unlike most people, we don’t want to pigeon-hold Pattinson in his Edward Cullen role. He’s obviously trying to branch out and do more serious films that don’t leech off his teen heartthrob persona, unfortunately his acting in this trailer doesn’t help him. All the sulking, all the stares, all the sighs, it’s so — emo.

Official Synopsis:

Based on the acclaimed bestseller, WATER FOR ELEPHANTS presents an unexpected romance in a uniquely compelling setting. Veterinary school student Jacob meets and falls in love with Marlena, a star performer in a circus of a bygone era. They discover beauty amidst the world of the Big Top, and come together through their compassion for a special elephant. Against all odds — including the wrath of Marlena’s charismatic but dangerous husband, August — Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love.

Water for Elephants opens in theaters on April 22, 2011.
