Here’s a great new batch of images released by 20th Century Fox for Cameron Crowe’s new movie, We Bought a Zoo. They come via USA Today and really give us a sense of what we can expect from this family movie which is set to hit cinemas in both the US and UK around Christmas.

It stars Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, Elle Fanning, Carla Gallo, Thomas Haden Church, Angus Macfadyen and is based on the true story of a father (Damon) who moves his young family to the countryside in in Southern California to renovate and re-open a struggling zoo.

Head over to USA Today for a full set of interviews with the main cast and Crowe himself. I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m a sucker for these animal related movies and I have a feeling I’m going to like this one!
