The trailer for The Zookeeper appeared on Apple Trailers today, and I have been waiting a while to see what this movie would be like. I knew that there would be talking animals, but still. Being a zookeeper myself, I welcome any entertainment that revolves around my career. Kevin James plays a zookeeper at the Franklin Park Zoo, a guy that does not have much luck in love department, so the animals decide to step in and help him. In addition to Kevin James, we have Rosario Dawson, Leslie Bibb, Adam Sandler, Cher, Jon Favreau, Sylvester Stallone, Judd Apatow, Jim Breuer, Faizon Love, Bas Rutten, Donnie Wahlberg, and Ken Jeong either voicing animals or appearing in the flesh. I am pleased to see environmental enrichment featured in the trailer. I am glad the filmmakers did some research into the field. The movie was filmed in Boston and at the actual Franklin Park Zoo.
The Zookeeper is in theatres July 8, 2011.
