Watch: International Trailer for 'We Bought a Zoo' Starring Matt Damon

November 2, 2011

We Bought a Zoo Trailer

After being absent from narrative feature films since Elizabethtown hit theaters in 2005, writer/director Cameron Crowe is looking to make a charming return to the big screen this year with Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson in his adaptation of We Bought a Zoo, based on Benjamin Mee's book of the same name. This new trailer seems to have the same mix of drama and romance as Jerry Maguire mixed with a bit of Elizabethtown. If there's one guarantee with a movie from Crowe, it's that the soundtrack will be phenomenal, mainly because aside from any actual songs, Sigur Ros is composing the score. Watch below!

Watch the new international trailer for Cameron Crowe's We Bought a Zoo, via YouTube:

A father moves his family to the countryside to renovate and re-open a small zoo in Southern California.

We Bought a Zoo, adapted from Benjamin Mee's book, is set in Southern California, and about a father who moves his family to the countryside to renovate and re-open a struggling zoo. 20th Century Fox is producing the film, directed by Oscar winner Cameron Crowe (of Say Anything, Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky, Elizabethtown), from a screenplay written by Crowe & Aline Brosh McKenna (Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses, Morning Glory). Fox is bringing We Bought a Zoo to theaters starting December 23rd.

Hmm... Not sure if this is going to be great but it is a Cameron Crowe film so anything is possible... I liked the "All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage..."

I was in tears at that trailer, who'd have thought they'd make a film about the new caretakers at the Neverland Ranch? Looks Awesome, I hope MJ comes back as a gHost.

I'm glad my blackened, cynical heart still has enough red in it to think this sentimental movie looks worth watching. It's OK to tear up once in a while everyone. It won't make you completely vulnerable.

Well said Mr Quanah.

Nitpicking a little but - Frontman, Jonsi is responsible for the score. Not Sigur Ros, the full band.

The final song in that trailer sounded like it could be from Jónsi's score.  That definitely sounded like him.
