In the fresh sneak-peek, Damon is seen taking his little daughter to find a new house and setting his eyes on an old ranch, which is actually an abandoned zoo.
A new clip for "We Bought a Zoo" has been made available for viewing pleasure. Making its way out via Fandango, the short snippet gives a look at a scene where Matt Damon takes his pal and little daughter to find a new house. On his way, he sees an old house and finally decides to buy it. He's surprised when hearing a loud roar from outside the house before realizing that the house is actually a zoo.
Based on the true life of Benjamin Mee, the drama tells the story of a journalist who decides to move his family into an abandoned zoo, Rosemoor Wildlife Park, after his wife dies from brain cancer. He lives his days dealing with escaped tigers, raising endangered animals, working with an eclectic skeleton crew and readying the zoo for a reopening.
To open in U.S. theaters on December 23, "We Bought a Zoo" is directed, co-written and co-produced by Cameron Crowe. In addition to Damon, the drama stars Scarlett Johansson as zookeper Kelly Foster, Colin Ford and Maggie Elizabeth Jones as Damon's kids Dylan and Rosie, and Elle Fanning as a young girl named Lily.
