Rotten Tomatoes: “Water for Elephants Best Opening Adult Drama This Year So Far”   1 comment

Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson drew a solid crowd for their romantic drama Water for Elephants which premiered in third place with an estimated $17.5M. Based on the best-selling novel, the PG-13 film averaged $6,212 from 2,817 locations and played heavily to female audiences, lovers of the book, and Twilight fans that follow Pattinson religiously. Critics had mixed feelings but the built-in audiences came out anyway giving Fox the best opening for an adult drama this year so far. Mature-skewing thrillers and comedies have done exceptionally well this year, but regular dramas have seen more modest numbers on the first weekend. An A- CinemaScore suggests a good run ahead as counter-programming to a steady diet of testosterone flicks about to attack multiplexes.

  1. I’m not surprised at all. I saw the movie twice, both time to full houses of older folks, men and women. There was applause at the end and very positive comments from the crowd. I hope that people will check this film out. It’s beautiful and wonderfully acted.For every negative review, there have been as many positive ones which are spot on in my opinion.
