With the recent news that Sigur Rós frontman Jónsi will be providing the soundtrack for Cameron Crowe‘s We Bought a Zoo (his first feature since Elizabethtown) we now have some new photos from the film. From The Playlist, they show off our first real look at Scarlett Johansson and can be seen above and below with more at the source.
Scripted by Aline Brosh McKenna, the film stars Matt Damon, Thomas Haden Church, Colin Ford, Angus MacFadyen, and John Michael Higgins. Based on a memoir by Benjamin Mee, the film “tells the true account of how the author and his family used their life savings to buy a dilapidated zoo, replete with 200 exotic animals facing destruction.”
In related news, the Harvard-educated actor Matt Damon took a stand that has been making the rounds this morning. Sporting his bald style for Neill Blomkamp‘s upcoming sci-fi film Elysium where he plays a convict, he spoke to a reporter at the Save Our Schools Million Teacher March in Washington DC. Standing next to his mother, he lets out a worthy expletive after an impressive defense of teachers, in what could be a deleted Good Will Hunting scene. Check it out below in today’s Daily Distraction.
Update: An unedited version of the video has appeared. Check it out below.
