First Trailer: “The Zookeeper’s Wife”

“Whale Rider” helmer Niki Caro has teamed up with Jessica Chastain for the animal-centric true story “The Zookeeper’s Wife” which is slated for a March 31st release. Today, the first trailer has been posted online and can be seen below.

Based on the 2007 book by Diane Ackerman, the story follows husband and wife zookeepers who convinced a Nazi zoologist to let them keep running their property as a pig farm, all while using the vast space to hide Jews escaping persecution and death.
