20th Century Fox has announced the Water for Elephants DVD and Blu-ray release date for November 1, 2011.

The movie, directed by Francis Lawrence, opened back in April to mixed/positive reviews, and it showed Robert Pattinson could bring some of his Twilight fans with him even if he doesn’t sparkle. Water for Elephants made $115 million worldwide which, on a budget of just $40 million, is a decent result.

Based on the acclaimed bestseller, Water for Elephants presents an unexpected romance in a uniquely compelling setting. Veterinary school student Jacob meets and falls in love with Marlena, a star performer in a circus of a bygone era. They discover beauty amidst the world of the Big Top, and come together through their compassion for a special elephant. Against all odds — including the wrath of Marlena’s charismatic but dangerous husband, August — Jacob and Marlena find lifelong love.
