Not to sound like a grouch, but I hate it when studios releasing dull, uninteresting images to promote their films. I want to see something exciting. In the case of this new photo from Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo, I would rather see star Matt Damon hanging out with a couple of elephants or monkeys rather than just stare unassumingly at nothing whilst standing next to Scarlett Johansson. The actors don’t even give the zebras room to smug up the joint. What are Damon and Johansson looking at exactly? Is it some sort of animal? A dinosaur? A mirror? Time will tell. At least this photo is more interesting than these early shots.
We Bought a Zoo also stars Thomas Haden Church, Elle Fanning and Patrick Fugit and concerns a father who relocates his family to a zoo as a way of mourning his recently deceased wife. The film opens December 23rd. Cheesy or not, I’m so there.
