After proving her funny bone in Bridesmaids last year, Rose Byrne is now leading her own film in the genre from Bruno and Borat writer Dan Mazer. I Give It a Year sees Byrne alongside Prometheus and Life of Pi‘s Rafe Spall, Anna Faris and Simon Baker in the story that follows a group of couples and their relationship troubles.
We’ve got the first trailer for the film today, which comes from Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, the group that gave us Notting Hill, High Fidelity and Love Actually. Although the basic concept is nothing new to the rom-com genre, it looks to be handled with surprising hilarity here and hopefully the finally product is up to the level of the aforementioned films. Check it out below thanks to HeyUGuys for the film also starring Stephen Merchant, Minnie Driver, Jason Flemyng and Olivia Colman.
Update: Check out the U.S. trailer below, which is nearly identical to the previous one.
Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nat’s a doer ..but the spark between them is undeniable.
Their wedding is a dream come true, but family, friend and even the minister who marries them aren’t convinced that they can last. Josh’s ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Faris), and Nat’s handsome American client Guy (Baker), could offer attractive alternatives.
With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?
I Give It A Year arrives in UK cinemas on February 8th and in the U.S. on August 9th.
