The first official trailer for Cameron Crowe's We Bought a Zoo has landed online, complete with all the inspirational, tear-jerking vibes we've come to expect from the filmmaker who brought us films like Jerry Maguire, Almost Famous and Elizabethtown. Crowe looks to be up to his old tricks here yet again, as this film even features a Jerry Maguire-esque "I quit" speech -- this time doled out by Matt Damon instead of Tom Cruise, who stars as a guy who quits his job to start his life over. When he's offered a piece of property that just happens to also be a zoo, Damon (and kids ... and love interest played by Scarlett Jonansson) band together to reinvent themselves and each other ... and maybe you too.
We Bought a Zoo lands in theaters on December 23rd, right in time for you to ask your loved one to buy you a zoo for Christmas. Watch the trailer below (or in HD over at Apple).
