Over Thanksgiving weekend, 20th Century Fox held preview screenings of director Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo. While the film doesn’t open until late December, the studio has decided to host another round of preview screenings this coming Saturday. I saw the movie over Thanksgiving and as I’ve said before, I was caught off guard by just how much I ended up loving it. What looks to be a sappy, quirky pic about a ragtag group of individuals fixin’ up a zoo is actually an incredibly emotional, character-centric drama that will have you smiling and crying in equal measure. The Almost Famous director has crafted an endlessly charming and undeniably “Cameron Crowe” flick, and I highly recommend you check it out this weekend if you have the chance. If you do, you’ll also hear one of the best scores of the year by Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi.

The pic stars Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, Elle Fanning, and Thomas Haden Church. We Bought a Zoo opens nationwide on Decmber 23rd.
