Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson Star in We Bought a Zoo

Posted on September 14, 2011

Here is the trailer for We Bought a Zoo starring Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and Thomas Haden Church. The family-friendly movie will be released on December 23rd. Inexplicably directed by Cameron Crowe, the film is loosely based on the book, We Bought a Zoo: The Amazing True Story of a Young Family, a Broken Down Zoo, and the 200 Wild Animals that Changed Their Lives Forever by Benjamin Mee.

The movie stars Damon as a single dad who quits his job and moves to the country. The property he buys is actually a zoo full of animals that need constant care. Take a look:
