The first trailer for the British comedy I Give It A Year has arrived, which teams up the likes of Anna Faris, Olivia Colman, Rose Byrne, Simon Baker, Rafe Spall, Minnie Driver and Stephen Merchant, for a movie that looks at the realities, trials and tribulations of the first year of marriage. Merchant gets the plum role in this promo, giving a truly cringe-inducing best man speech, in a way only he can.
Dan Mazer makes his feature-directorial debut, having spent years writing and producing with Sasha Baron Cohen on everything from Ali G to The Dictator. The film is due to hit UK cinemas on 8th February 2013, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
And while we’re hit, why is it nearly every British comedy in the past few years seems to have been about weddings? It’s not even like they’re inherently successful, as everything from The Knot to The Wedding Video have proved. Maybe looking at the first year of marriage can broaden things out a bit.
