STARRING Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon, and Christoph Waltz
DIRECTED BY Francis Lawrence

“To have a costar who is this reliable, this sensitive and circumspect and intelligent — it’s just fabulous,” says Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds). He’s not talking about Reese Witherspoon or Robert Pattinson, who play the star performer and veterinary student in an adaptation of Sara Gruen’s best-seller about a traveling circus in the 1930s. He’s talking about Tai, a 9,000-pound Asian elephant. Though Waltz plays the sadistic ringmaster who beats the elephant, he promises, “I don’t really touch her — that’s added in later.” —Benjamin Svetkey
