Sneak Peek: Matt Damon Buys a Zoo (and More) in ‘We Bought a Zoo’ Clips

This Friday, Cameron Crowe’s life-affirming We Bought a Zoo starring the lovable Matt Damon, will reach theaters. Damon stars as the good-hearted, outsmarted Benjamin Mee, a man who, having no place else to turn, buys a zoo for him and his family. The film also stars Scarlett Johansson as a begrudging zookeeper, Thomas Haden Church as Ben’s cynical brother, Patrick Fugit as zoo employee Robin and a whole bunch of animals ready to teach Ben how to live.

Below is a collection of We Bought a Zoo clips, filled with all of the energy and whimsy you’d expect from a film centered around a man’s financial reception of a menagerie.

When Ben and his young daughter Rosie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones) are escorted to their new property, they don’t expect to find too many surprises. Fresh air, a quiet environment…maybe a lion or two. When they arrive, their real estate agent (J.B. Smoove) informs them of something a little disconcerting: they bought a zoo.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
