New Movies in Theaters: ‘Water for Elephants,’ ‘Madea’s Big Happy Family’


Two new movies are opening nationwide this this weekend.  One is a film adaptation of the bestselling novel ‘Water for Elephants,’ starring Robert Pattinson (in a non-vampire role) and Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon.

The other is a sequel in a long line of sequels in the ‘Madea’ franchise, called ‘Madea’s Big Happy Family.’ It’s hard to say which film will do better at the box office, as one looks to be aiming for Oscar consideration while the other is an ensemble comedy with a well-known leading character.

Take a look at their trailers after the jump.


Directed by: Francis Lawrence
What It’s About: Based on the bestselling novel by Sara Gruen, ‘Water For Elephants’ is set during the Great Depression and focuses on a former veterinary student (Robert Pattinson) who abandons his studies to join a traveling circus after his parents are killed in a car accident. Get Tickets & Showtimes

Six Second Review: ‘Water for Elephants’


Directed by: Tyler Perry
What It’s About: Madea is back! But this time, the family has some bad news about her niece, Shirley, and her health.  All Shirley wants to do is get the family together to share the news as a group, but everyone else is too involved in their own lives to let it happen.
