I should just make Fridays the official book-to-movie trailer day. It’s pretty much headed in that direction anyway.
Today’s trailer (for which I have the lovely Carley Ribet to thank) features Water for Elephants, originally a book by Sara Gruen. My mom loved this book. She loved it so much that I read it and I think my dad read it too. That would make it one of a rare handful of titles that the three of us all enjoyed.
The movie stars Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson, which has me torn. I do love a good Reese flick, but Robert Pattinson? As in Twilight? If he can prove he’s more than just a sparkly heartthrob with a taste for blood, I’ll be impressed. And while we’re talking impressive – look at the talent that elephant is displaying. Academy Awards, take note.
