"We Bought a Zoo": In Theaters Now!

Posted Friday December 23, 2011 5:11 PM GMT

Unveiling its heart-warming tale just in time for the holiday, "We Bought a Zoo" made its theatrical debut today (December 23).

Based on a true story, the film boasts an all-star cast, including Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, Elle Fanning and Thomas Haden Church.

As for the movie itself, it centers on a single dad who decides his family needs a fresh start, so he and his two children move to the most unlikely of places: a zoo. With the help of a bizarre staff and many misadventures, the family works to rebuild the neglected zoo back to its original wonder.

While tending to "We Bought a Zoo" press duties, Miss Johansson told, “It is a true story based on Benjamin Mee. He wrote a book about his experience and there is also a documentary about his experience. I think the film is really about starting over. I think it's about a sort of human connectivity that allows us to kind of overcome obstacles that seem larger than life at times.”
