It seems the seeds were planted a long time ago for Cameron Crowe's upcoming family drama, "We Bought a Zoo."

Think back to a 1996 favorite, "Jerry Maguire." Remember the little boy (who now is a beer-drinking adult), who said, adorably, "lets go to the zoo"? And while poor little Ray never did end up going because "the f*cking's zoo's closed," it seems, 15 years later, that dreams come true after all.

Based on the Benjamin Mee memoir, "We Bought a Zoo" starts off with a floundering family unit -- a father who struggles to parent his children and children who feel misunderstood. They need a change. The man then quits his job (boy, Crowe really likes to those grand I-quit-moments) and buys a house far away from his past life.

The only thing is, the house also happens to be a zoo.

And while their new life takes some getting used to, a beautiful Scarlett Johansson is there to help make the transition a bit easier.

Take a look at the newly released international trailer and let us know what you think!
