Box Office Mojo recently names Water For Elephants among their 2011 Preview: Ten Miscellaneous Contenders:
While sequels, remakes, comic book adaptations and animated movies will inevitably dominate 2011’s box office, there will still be a few hits that don’t fall in to any of these categories. In 2009, there was Avatar, The Hangover and The Blind Side, and in 2010 there was Inception. Here’s a look at ten of the contenders, including three high-profile book adaptations, a few alien invasion movies, a potential Twilight successor or two and some wholly original wild cards.
Water for Elephants (April 22): It’s easy to dismiss Robert Pattinson as just part of the Twilight craze thanks to the poor box office performance of Remember Me last March. However, his next movie Water for Elephants is poised to be much more successful: it’s helmed by blockbuster director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend), has interesting co-stars Reese Witherspoon and Christoph Waltz and is based on a reportedly popular book.
WFE is definitely poised for success. We are not dismissing anyone involved and can’t wait for this spectacular film. 82 more days!
