A new trailer for the British romantic comedy I Give It a Year has been released online. The film stars Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids) and Rafe Spall (Prometheus) as a mismatched couple and centers on their struggle to survive their first year of marriage. While the logline and “romantic comedy” description may sound a bit trite, this actually looks like a solid comedy. The new trailer features some great stuff from Stephen Merchant and even a solid Justin Bieber joke for good measure.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Written and directed by Dan Mazer (Borat), the film also stars Minnie Driver, Jason Flemyng, Olivia Colman, and Jane Asher. I Give It A Year opens in the UK on February 8, 2013.
Here’s a synopsis for I Give It a Year:
Since they met at a party, ambitious high-flyer Nat (Rose Byrne) and struggling novelist Josh (Rafe Spall) have been deliriously happy despite their differences. Josh is a thinker, Nat’s a doer, he’s lasses faire and she’s quite anal… but the spark between them is undeniable.
Their wedding is a dream come true, but family, friends and even the minister who marries them aren’t convinced that they can last. Josh’s ex-girlfriend, Chloe (Anna Faris), and Nat’s handsome American client Guy (Simon Baker), could offer attractive alternatives…
With their first anniversary approaching, neither wants to be the first to give up, but will they make it?
