Robert Pattinson in steamy new “Water for Elephants” trailer

By Sean O’Connell posted the newest trailer for Frances Lawrence’s upcoming “Water for Elephants” Thursday night.

We have a link to the clip, as well as a YouTube version at the bottom of this post.

The handsome teaser shows “Twilight” heartthrob hopping a circus train toward his destiny, where he meets and falls in love with Reese Witherspoon (much to her husband, Christoph Waltz’s, chagrin).

The trailer, which looks fantastic, sets the stage for a face off between Pattinson and Waltz for Witherspoon’s heart. It’s gorgeously mounted, with a classic “Old Hollywood” feel. The concept of forbidden romance might not be a stretch for Pattinson, coming off of his “Twilight” gig, but this one has moved near the top of our anxious-to-see list.

Here’s hoping Lawrence and his cast can convey the emotions needed to make “Elephants” fly.

The film opens everywhere April 22.
