Check out the new trailer for Dan Mazer's Brit comedy "I Give It a Year," starring Rose Byrne and Rafe Spall ("Life of Pi") as newlyweds who may have rushed to the altar a little too quickly. Anna Faris, Minnie Driver and Simon Baker also star.

Director Mazer ("Borat") penned the script, with Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner ("Love, Actually") producing. Here's the official synopsis:

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, but the spark between them is undeniable. Their wedding is a dream come true, but no one — family, friends and even the minister who marries them — is convinced that they will 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?

The film has an iTunes/VOD release on July 3, and hits theaters August 9 via Magnolia Pictures.
