Eagerly ready for Christmas, We Bought A Zoo has wrapped us up a zebra in a big green bow in a new poster for Cameron Crowe‘s exotic animal-filled drama this week.
From the director of Jerry Maguire, We Bought A Zoo is based on a memoir by Benjamin Mee about how he and his family – played by Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson and Elle Fanning – used their life savings to buy Dartmoor Zoological Park in the English countryside.
From seeing Matt Damon as a father figure in last month’s Contagion, I think we can expect something really moving from his portrayal in this heart-warming story. But We Bought A Zoo is also a comedy, so it will be interesting to see how he and Johanson work that in too.
