I-Give-It-A-Year-Quad-PosterDan Mazer’s I Give It A Year is finally on the cusp of release across the Atlantic, bringing a brilliant cast and what is sure to be a charming romantic-comedy with it to the big screen.

Released in the UK earlier this year, the film has in fact just been released on DVD/Blu-ray on our shores. And having sadly missed it whilst it was in cinemas, this great new red-band US trailer, courtesy of Yahoo Movies, also serves as a reminder for those of us here who missed its theatrical release.

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?

Rafe Spall, Rose Bryne, Anna Faris, and Simon Baker star as the leading quartet, with a terrific supporting cast led by Stephen Merchant, Olivia Colman, Minnie Driver, and Jason Flemyng.

Oscar nominee Mazer (Borat, Bruno) makes his feature directorial debut, directing from his own script.

I Give It A Year will be released in the US on August 9th, and is out now on DVD and Blu-ray here in the UK. Here’s the new trailer to give you a taste of what to expect. And since it really earns its red-band rating, it’s unsuitable viewing for work. Enjoy.

Since graduating, I spend as much time as possible watching films/TV shows, reading books, and listening to music. So getting to write about what I love is nothing short of awesome. Biggest film-related hope for 2014/ever: Guy Ritchie announcing the RocknRolla sequel is finally moving forward.
