    March 16th for the UK – seriously? How annoying. I know it’s out of your control, but theres no reason for such a delay especially when no changes are needed to the release as its in English already! And studios wonder why people download movies :(

      In terms of marketing, I think the English-language version had to work kind of hard against its title. I mean, it just sounds kind of… dorky. Nothing against the real-life Benjamin Mee and his book title, but a movie title has its own cruel logic. Speaking from experience, I think anyone trying to give the movie the word-of-mouth it deserves has had to deal with the issue: “Yeah, I know its sort of a silly title, but trust me; it’s a better movie than you’re thinking.”

      I think a case can be made that it was a courageous decision to name it “We Bought a Zoo”, and I’m not sure “A Place to Dream” would have worked better as an English title. But “Un Lugar para Soñar” does sound nice, at least in Spanish.

      Per boxofficemojo.com, domestic box office as of yesterday was $44,490,999. I guess the continuing ad campaign is working. As Rosie would say, “Yay!” Here’s hoping the Scarlett Johansson obsessives in the rest of the world do their part during the international run.

        well said john… it’s an interesting parlor game to play now in retrospect, what would the movie be called if you could call it anything but “we bought a zoo.”  it’s also always tough to get used to it when you’ve made the movie under one name, and then change it later… we made “almost famous” as “untitled” and when the title had to be changed nobody who worked on the movie could handle it or even say it without it feeling like a betrayal.  now it feels fine.   though so happy the longer version will always be called “untitled.”

          Hi Patrick. This is the theatrical schedule. Not the DVD schedule. That hasn’t been decided yet. Thanks.

     I am grateful that in this cynical world, there are still artists who
    are courageous enough not to run from earnestness, but to embrace it.
    Cameron Crowe has done just that with WE BOUGHT A ZOO. This is a
    beautiful movie, full of life – truthfully acted, beautifully shot and
    lovingly directed. I expected to cry (which I did, many times) but I
    didn’t know that it would also be so funny with levity coming just when
    you need it. Matt Damon was brilliant as the heartbroken but hopeful
    father. And my only gripe about Thomas Haden Church is that there
    wasn’t more of him! The kids were all brilliant — not an ounce of
    self-consciousness to their acting, which is rare when it comes to
    child actors. And the final scene alone is worth the price of
    admission. Anyone willing to open his or her heart will fall in love
    with this movie like I did. Kudos to all involved.
