Amazon.com debuts trailers now? Is this old news and are we just catching on? The super site has premiered a new trailer for the Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson drama Water for Elephants. The film takes place during the Great Depression and features all the things we love: romance, betrayal, poverty, and who even the circus! Check out the new trailer…

Water for Elephants is an adaptation of the novel of the same name. The feature is directed by Francis Lawrence and stars Pattinson as a poor drifter named Jacob, who finds family and love at a circus. He becomes involved with the main attraction, Marlena, who happens to be married to the ruthless ringmaster August (Christoph Waltz). Despite the danger surrounding their relationship Jacob and Marlena continue to fight for each other and their love.

Even though we’re happy to see Pattinson outside of the Twilight universe, why does he always have such crappy relationships with women in all his movies? We understand problems keep things interesting, but jeez! How many times does he have to get his butt beat for a girl?

Water for Elephants opens in theaters on April 22.
