Steve Martin & Jack Black in The Big Year

Hey all you closet birdwatchers, time to finally chime in! Fox 2000 Pictures has released a first look photo for their upcoming comedy The Big Year, starring quite a cast, but namely Owen Wilson, Steve Martin and Jack Black, as seen in the photo below, from IMDb (via Cinema Blend). The wacky comedy, that we have yet to see a trailer for, is about three avid bird watchers who compete to spot the rarest birds in North America at a prestigious annual event. Also stars Jim Parsons, Rosamund Pike, Rashida Jones, Joel McHale, Anjelica Huston and others. It's an early first look, but I bet there's plenty more coming soon. Check it out!

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. Anyone interested in this yet?

From the cast alone, this looks like it will make a billion dollars.

a bit over an over estimation there maybe?

None of these so called "comedians" have hit the funny bone in quite some time ( aside from Kung Fu Panda's!) and I am expecting lots of crass bottom of the barrel jokes about cold weather & Blue tits

Obmascik's books was great--funny and a quick read. The cast seems perfect. I hope the movie captures the book's humor.
