Watch: ‘I Give It A Year’ Premieres Today In U.K.; Teases U.S. With 3 More Clips

The Playlist By Tess Hofmann | The Playlist February 8, 2013 at 10:20AM

“I Give It A Year” drops today in the U.K., and while U.S. distribution still hasn’t been secured, the rom-com’s SXSW stateside premiere in March should guarantee that someone picks it up. Witha cast of US-friendly faces including Rose Byrne, Anna Faris, Minnie Driver and Simon Baker, plus one of the most seriously promising rom-com trailers of its genre in years -- it seems like a no brainer. But on the off chance that a U.S. release is delayed, we can probably just piece together the teasers that keep coming out and get something close to a feature film.

I Give It A Year

I Give It A Year” drops today in the U.K., and while U.S. distribution still hasn’t been secured, the rom-com’s SXSW stateside premiere in March should guarantee that someone picks it up. Witha cast of US-friendly faces including Rose Byrne, Anna Faris, Minnie Driver and Simon Baker, plus one of the most seriously promising rom-com trailers of its genre in years -- it seems like a no brainer. But on the off chance that a U.S. release is delayed, we can probably just piece together the teasers that keep coming out and get something close to a feature film.

Three new clips reveal extended versions of trailer moments -- Rafe Spall and Stephen Merchant’s novelty wedding dance, Driver’s instant classic line, “I’d ruin Bieber,” and Byrne’s horrifying mistake in showing her parents the contents of her camera after the honeymoon. It’s all just as delicious in expanded form -- watch below to confirm for yourself.

Though we’ve seen a lot, one thing we’re left wondering is whether Ms. Faris will be delivering any punchlines? From the looks of things so far, she’s been overshadowed by Byrne, Driver, and Merchant. Could it be that one of the most experienced comedians in this all-star cast was relegated to playing the nice girl? Maybe Americans really can’t keep up with British humor. But we’re hoping the best has been saved for last.
