Matt Damon and Luciana Barroso Pictures: Matt Damon and wife Luciana Barroso attend the "We Bought a Zoo" movie premiere at Ziegfeld Theater on December 12, 2011 in New York City.

Based on a true story, Benjamin Mee is a recently-widowed father who moves his family to a beautiful estate miles outside the city. The only catch is that the estate is also a dilapidated zoo replete with 200 animals, and the purchase of the home is conditional on the new owner keeping the zoo and its entire staff. The Mee family subsequently sets out to rebuild and refurbish the zoo to its former glory, making new friends along the way.

"We Bought a Zoo" opens in theaters nationwide on December 23.
