"Water for Elephants" (April 22)
Stars: Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon, Christoph Waltz. Director: Francis Lawrence.
2010’s “Remember Me” was supposed to be Pattinson’s chance to prove his appeal beyond Edward Cullen, but that movie has pretty much been forgotten by all but his hardcore fans. Now he has another shot in this Great Depression-era circus-set love triangle between a veterinarian (Pattinson), an equestrian (Witherspoon) and her animal trainer husband (Waltz). And if this one doesn’t work either, Pattinson’s next historical romance, “Bel Ami,” is due later in the year.

"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part One)" (Nov. 18)
Stars: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner. Director: Bill Condon.
Sorry Bella/Jacob fans, our angsty heroine's heart has always been with cool vampire Edward. And “Breaking Dawn” is when the soulmates marry, get busy and have a little human-vamp über-baby. How much of these antics we'll see in part one of the two part finale is not yet clear. But fangirls are already quivering with anticipation at reports of torrid love scenes.
(No doubt still safely within the series' PG-13 limits.
