Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo (in theaters Christmas) has a trailer, the gist of which is “Don’t Come Around Here No More, civilization.” It’s got Matt Damon dramatically quitting his job and uprooting his family, at Thomas Haden Church’s suggestion, to a place with sunshine. Curb Your Enthusiasm marvel J.B. Smoove shows Matt Damon a lovely house for sale, then informs him, “It’s a zoo.” What? That’s almost never the case!
Then suddenly Scarlett Johansson, who already lives at the zoo with Elle Fanning, is yelling at him to “take charge of this place or else we and all these animals are gone.” So Matt Damon gets super into it, spouting motivational lines like “All you need is 20 seconds and insane courage, and I promise you something great will come of it.” And then the tiger kills him after all. (No, it doesn’t.)
“Do something crazy” and “embrace your wild side” by watching the trailer:
Are you roaring?
