First Look: Reese Witherspoon & Robert Pattinson's 'Water For Elephants' Poster

The poster for Francis Lawrence’s upcoming “Water for Elephants” has hit, and if the artwork is any indication as to how the movie was shot, audiences can expect a beautiful film.

The poster, released to Access Hollywood on Thursday, shows “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson in an embrace with a stunningly elegant Reese Witherspoon (who looks ravishing in a dark slim-fitting dress and glamorous soft curls) while “Inglorious Basterds” villain Christoph Waltz looks on from the background.

The drama/love story – based on the novel of the same name — tells the tale of a veterinary student who becomes a vet for a traveling circus after his parents are killed. He then falls in love with the head trainer’s wife.

Both Robert and Reese have multiple additional projects in the works, with R-Pattz starring in the upcoming “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn,” Parts 1 & 2, as well as “Cosmopolis” with (rumored) co-star Keira Knightley. Meanwhile, Reese recently wrapped production on “This Means War” with Chris Pine and “Inception” hunk Tom Hardy.

“Water for Elephants” is slated to hit theaters on April 22.
