A teaser trailer/poster combo for Zookeeper is now available online. Starring live-action contributions from Kevin James, Rosario Dawson, and Leslie Bibb the film tells the story of a zoo caretaker (James) who decides that true love is only a new job away. While I can enjoy a good tease as much as the next guy/gal, judging solely from this teaser trailer, I can’t help but wonder if James has any lines in the film or if he simply screams, runs away from something, and eventually falls over various objects. If not, Sony Pictures may have a hit on their hands.
In addition to the previously mentioned cast, Zookeeper also features the voice talents of Sylvester Stallone, Adam Sandler, Judd Apatow, Jon Favreau, and Cher. The film is directed by Frank Coraci (Click) and is scheduled to hit theaters July 8th, 2011. Hit the jump to check out both the trailer and poster as well as a synopsis for the film.
Here’s the trailer [click over to Apple to watch in HD]:
In Zookeeper, the animals at the Franklin Park Zoo love their kindhearted caretaker, Griffin Keyes (Kevin James). Finding himself more comfortable with a lion than a lady, Griffin decides the only way to get a girl in his life is to leave the zoo and find a more glamorous job. The animals, in a panic, decide to break their time-honored code of silence and reveal their biggest secret: they can talk! To keep Griffin from leaving, they decide to teach him the rules of courtship – animal style. The film also stars Rosario Dawson and Leslie Bibb and features the voices of Cher, Nick Nolte, Adam Sandler, and Sylvester Stallone.
