LIFE IS THE MOST SPECTACULAR SHOW ON EARTH

Witness The Epic Tale of Forbidden Love Starring
Academy Award® Winner Reese Witherspoon and
Robert Pattinson On Blu-ray and DVD November 1


Take a journey back in time with the romantic tale based on Sara Gruen’s New York Times #1 Best-Seller novel of the same name, WATER FOR ELEPHANTS, coming to Blu-ray and DVD on November 1st from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Starring Academy Award®-winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk The Line), Robert Pattinson (Twilight series) and Oscar®-winner Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds), the film presents an epic tale of forbidden love in a magical place filled with adventure, wonder and great danger. Showcasing the decadence of a bohemian circus and the majesty of its animals against the backdrop and beauty of a bygone era, WATER FOR ELEPHANTS makes the ideal holiday gift idea for your favorite film buff, fashionista or book-lover!

Devastated by the sudden death of his parents at the height of The Depression, a young dreamer from the wrong side of the tracks, Jacob Jankowski (Pattinson), abandons his veterinary studies at
Cornell University. With no other family, no house, and no money, Jacob stows away on a train carrying the circus performers of The Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.  Hired as a veterinarian to care for the troupe’s animals, Jacob is temporarily filled with the promise of an exciting life that comes with a traveling circus troupe. However, as he builds a rapport and falls in love with the star of the show, Marlena (Witherspoon), they become prey to the circus’s owner, Marlena’s violent and abusive husband August (Waltz). As the circus begins to crumble from within and against all odds, Jacob and Marlena come together and fall in love through their compassion for a special elephant. With their love on the line, Jacob and Marlena come to a crossroads that will forever change their destiny. 
Directed by critically-acclaimed filmmaker Francis Lawrence (Constantine), WATER FOR ELEPHANTS features fantastic supporting performances from Paul Schneider (Lars and the Real Girl), Jim Norton (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), Mark Povinelli (The Polar Express), Richard Brake (Batman Begins), and Academy Award®-nominee Hal Holbrook (Into the Wild).

WATER FOR ELEPHANTS will be available on Blu-ray and DVD in the U.S. Pre-book is September 21st.

While I love the look and feel of the 30s, I'm going with modern only because of the regulations in place for the treatment of animals. The lion without teeth made me cry

Awesome contest! Thanks!

I love the acrobats/trapeze artists and the lion tamer acts. I also love the elephants! I do not, however, love the clowns. :/

I like the circus of today because some of the side show "freaks" of the old days are pretty creepy, and I'd like to think (or I hope) that the circus people of today treat their animals better than they did back in the day.

Thanks!

My favorite part of the circus would be the lion and elephant acts. Also the wardrobes of performers. Especially in the 30's! I would prefer the more modern circus because I'm hoping they are cleaner! LOL! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!!!!

My favorite part of the circus would be avoiding it all together! Bahahaha! Mindy I just had to comment on this to give you crap! I hate the circus and clowns as you know! Hahaha! <3

My favorite part of the circus is when the women ride on the horses. My least favorite part is the clowns. They are so creepy!

I love the elephants (I collect elephants, but no, I haven't read this book yet or seen the movie) and the acrobats, whether on the trapeze, tightrope or just in the ring. The costumes of the '30s were beautiful, but as others said, they didn't treat the animals well and then there are those freaky side shows that exploited people who should have been cared for.

Hi Mindy! Thanks for the great giveaway! I love the romance and elegance of 1930's performers, but I'll agree that the better treatment of the animals today and the feats they accomplish make the modern circus a bit more enjoyable. My favorite act? The flying trapeze is by far the best. I'm a big Cirque fan.

I am going to go with 1930's circus. There is just something nostalgic about it. The dim lights, the random makeshift seating and the ruggedness of the workers and performers are totally old school. I am an old school kinda gal.

Thanks for the giveaway..

I have never been to a circus myself...only what I have seen on tv...But I would enjoy the animals the most..even though my heart goes out to them having to do something that isn't natural for their nature.

I find historical circuses fascinating, 1930s era and beyond. My favorite part is seeing the animals come alive in their acts, watching talented people tame them and turn their connection with animals into an art form.
