We Bought A Zoo (2011)
Saturday 23rd June 2012
Get lost in a real life journey of a man who did the unthinkable and brought a zoo back to life and his family together. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents We Bought A Zoo, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD on 16th July 2012. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire) and starring Matt Damon (Contagion, True Grit), Scarlett Johansson (Iron Man 2, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) and Thomas Haden Church (Easy A, Sideways), We Bought A Zoo is an amazing and uplifting story that's good for whole family.
Benjamin Mee (Damon) is a Los Angeles newspaper columnist and adventure writer who, as a single father, faces the challenges of raising his two young children. Hoping that a fresh start and a new life will restore their family spirit, Mee quits his job and buys an old rural house outside the city with a unique bonus feature: a zoo named the Rosemoor Animal Park, where dozens of animals reside under the care of head zookeeper Kelly Foster (Johansson) and her dedicated team. With no experience, limited time and a shoestring budget, Mee sets out with the support of his family and the local community to reopen the zoo. Now, Benjamin is no longer reporting an adventure story; he's living it in his own backyard.
Featuring an incredible musical score composed by Jónsi of the band Sigur Rós, the We Bought A Zoo Blu-ray is loaded with over 2½ hours of special features including 20 deleted and extended scenes, three behind-the-scenes featurettes, commentary with Director Cameron Crowe and more.
