Matt Damon contemplates why he Bought a Zoo in a new trailer

Sep. 14, 2011by:

Matt Damon appears to be shifting into family mode when it comes to his film choices as of late, and WE BOUGHT A ZOO is probably his most heartwarming attempt yet. The Cameron Crowe film follows to "true events" tale of a man who buys a dilapidated zoo and fixes it up with his children.

Also starring are Thomas Hayden Church, JB Smoove and the recently topless (and mostly bottomless) Scarlett Johansson. If you haven't heard that news item yet today, I am happy to be your be your bearer of good news.

If you haven't clicked that link, check out the WE BOUGHT A ZOO trailer below.

Extra Tidbit: This looks like it could have easily starred Jim Carrey and gone a whole different direction.

Cameron Crowe's got the Cameron Crow goin on, Matt Damon's got the Jerry Maguire goin on, I love this! Been waiting for a Crowe film since Elizabethtown. The Tom Petty and Sigur Ros make this trailer great too.

Okay, let me think.

Crowe. Damon. Sigur Ros. See you at X-Mas.

Plus: I can now see everything that Scarjo does from now on in naked form.

This looks absolutely awful. Overly used movie trailer songs, cringe-worthy lines like "Am I doing anything right," annoyingly cute movie kids, a job-quitting speech right out of Jerry Maguire, and forced emotional uplift. Looks way beneath Cameron Crowe, like a Marley and Me wannabe. Hopefully the trailer is not indicative of movie's quality.

Looks really sweet and nice. Crowe is a favorite of mine, although I don't like Elizabethtown that much.

I'm in. Love Crowe, Damon, Scarlett (especially today). The Sigur Ros in the trailer was a nice touch...Was a little hesitant about this film but I think it could be a nice return to form for Crowe.

And not to be nitpicky, but as far as I know this is the only Damon film to be remotely 'family-ish' (Contagion, True Grit, Adjustment Bureau, Green Zone, Hereafter)

I woulda preferred had it been called "We Bought a Zoo, Fuck You" - but I'm mostly down with this. The only question is will the animals break their vow of silence to help skinny Kevin James bang ScarJo?

Looks great. Cameron Crowe film are always fun to watch, and Matt Damon is great in pretty much everything. I also have a feeling it will be a little deeper than the trailer leads it on to be.

Looks more Elizabethtown than Almost Famous or Jerry MaGuire (even with the big "quitting my job" grandstanding)
