The Big Year Trailer

"One of us has to beat this SOB!" Fox has finally unveiled the official trailer on Apple for The Big Year, the bird-watching comedy starring a trio of comedian actors that should guarantee this is a hit - Owen Wilson, Steven Martin and Jack Black. We've been waiting to see this trailer for a while, and it does look funny, like a mix of a road trip comedy and just something wacky entirely. The supporting cast includes Rashida Jones, Rosamund Pike, Anjelica Huston, Joel McHale, Jim Parsons and many more. If you're looking for some comedy fun, then fire up this trailer! This looks like your typical comedy, but it's the cast that sells it.

Watch the first official trailer for David Frankel's The Big Year, via Apple:

Three avid bird watchers compete to spot the rarest birds in North America at a prestigious annual event.

The Big Year is directed by Oscar winning filmmaker David Frankel, who directed Miami Rhapsody, The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me, as well as some episodes of "Sex and the City" and "Entourage". The screenplay was written by Howard Franklin (Someone to Watch Over Me, The Man Who Knew Too Little, Antitrust) adapted from Mark Obmascik's 2004 book fully titled The Big Year: A Tale of Man, Nature, and Fowl Obsession. Fox is bringing The Big Year to theaters everywhere starting on October 14th this fall.

    Wow.  I didn't even crack a smile the entire time.  Looks like yet another "comedy" that squanders a good cast.

  • I stared with a smile and as it went on (and on and on) it slowly just faded into a blank face....
    • Clare
      Same here, I love these guys especially Steve Martin, but just meh.

      same thing, here.......the more it went on, the more i felt the blank stare. i'm a big steve martin fan too; but.......meh is what describes it best.
  • Love all the people in this, but it almost feels like it's the caliber of a romantic comedy, just without the romance. Cheesy and cheap physical humor.
  • Yeah... I'm .. not feeling this.
    • and that sucks, cause the First Look photos looked great. 
  • Joselio
    Eat Pray Love - guy/trio version, sucks big time!
  • Shige
    Looks like a chick flick but for guys. Meh.
  • BigChad
    Steve Martin and Jack Black? Ought to be funny, definitely watching this!
  • Mediocre at best.
  • Brian
    the bucket list with THREE guys! 
  • Teuta
    From the cast alone, this looks like it will make a billion dollars.
  • JT
    It was funny when it was about bird watching, then they threw in the quirky romantic comedy and ruined the feeling.
  • Dom
    So what the hell is this about - looks totally lost.
  • Looks laughable enough in daft sort of way. I'll watch it online when it goes straight to DVD.
  • Thought it looked fun enough, could really go for something that appears to be not just another R rated, baby poop, sex raunch comedy.
  • Robert
    Totally agree with Brian here, isn't this just...The Bucket List with one more guy?, can't even compare it to the Bucket List!
  • Xerxexx
    The trailer sold me on the helicopter scene but lost me near the end...that being said I wanna see it.
  • Sweet! as far as meh I wanna see it! but then I'm not a big Douche Bag!
  • Adam
  • rew
    im confused...
  • Me
    I don't see what everyone's problem is here, this looks great! It has a great cast and I don't expect it to be an Oscar winning film, so yeah

    Being a Bird-Watcher or Birder would help one understand the humor in this competition. I can't wait for the movie!
  • Kenji
    steve martin doin his dance at the end
  • Triston
    The bucket list was aleady done...why have a Pt2?
  • This movie is a great one! Since I also love bird watching, I got interested in watching the film. And I noticed that they used Kowa BD series binoculars, which I also use.  Extraordinary quality and ease of use in a binocular built for use by all birders and outdoor enthusiasts. Right choice!
