The new snippet from the Cameron Crowe-directed drama offers a peek at the scene in which Damon introduces himself and his family to the zookeeper team led by Scarlett Johansson.
20th Century Fox has revealed a fresh clip for "We Bought a Zoo". The snippet sees how Matt Damon and his kids first meet Scarlett Johansson and her zookeeper team in the movie. Despite his attempt to be friendly, Damon seems to leave an awkward first impression after declaring that their introduction marks his "modern day adventures" in the zoo.
In the film, Damon plays Benjamin Mee as he decides to move his family into an abandoned zoo, Rosemoor Wildlife Park, after his wife dies from brain cancer. There, he lives his days dealing with escaped tigers, raising endangered animals, working with an eclectic skeleton crew and readying the zoo for a reopening.
"We Bought a Zoo" also stars Johansson as zookeper Kelly Foster, Elle Fanning as Foster's cousin Lily, Colin Ford and Maggie Elizabeth Jones as Damon's kids Dylan and Rosie, and Thomas Haden Church as Duncan Mee. Directed by Cameron Crowe, the drama film is slated for a December 23 release in theaters across the U.S.
