Set photos for Cameron Crowe's We Bought a Zoo

I'm a sucker for Cameron Crowe.  With the possible exception of Aaron Sorkin, I don't think there is a film-maker alive who is able to infuse his movies with as much  heart.  Cameron Crowe allows his movies and chracters to be optimistic, but that emotion is always earned and genuine.  As "sweet" as some of his films may be, they are never scaherine pandering.  So obviously We Bought a Zoo, his first movie in six years, is right at the top of my must see list for the year.

We Bought a Zoo is based on the true story of a widower(played by Matt Damon) who with no prior experience purchases a zoo after the death of his wife.  It also stars Patrick Fugit, Elle Fanning, Thomas Haden Church and Scarlett Johansson.

In kind of a cool development Cameron Crowe just joined Twitter and his first act was to share some set photos for his new movie.  I'm not sure if Crowe took these photos himself or someone else did; but what I think is really cool about them is they aren't the typical sterile set photos you see from most films.  There is a very certain vibe coming off the photos.  I don't know if the tone of the pictures has anything to do with the final film or not, but either way there are some very cool shots.  I know these pics increase my anticipation of the movie if only because it is becoming more real.

What about you guys?  Are you looking forward to We Bought a Zoo?  Do these photos do anything for your anticipation level? Let me know in the comments below.
