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

Madea's Big Happy Family
Lionsgate

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, Mr. Moviefone’s Six Second Reviews and a list of movies still in theaters after the jump.

‘Water for Elephants’

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.

What It’s About: Madea is back! But this time, the family has some bad news about her niece, Shirley, and her health.
