The latest trailer for Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo shows just a bit more of the plot and lets you know the characters a little bit more than the domestic trailer for the film.
Zoo is based on a memoir by Benjamin Mee. Mee used his life saving to buy Dartmoor Zoological Park. The park was falling apart and over 200 exotic animals were scheduled to be euthanized. With the help of his family, Mee revived the dying zoo. Mee’s story took place in England, however, Crowe moved the setting to California and cast Matt Damon in the role of Mee. Thomas Hayden Church and Scarlett Johannsson are also in the film.
We Bought a Zoo set to be released to theaters on December 23rd, 2011.
