The Big Year Trailer Flies In
Martin, Black & Wilson go birdspotting

The Big Year Trailer Flies In

Given that the movie features the combined laugh-generating power of Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson, new comedy The Big Year has largely been flying under the radar. But now the first trailer for the film is out over on Apple.

Coming off like a cross between The Bucket List and Planes, Trains & Automobiles, The Big Year finds three avid ornithologists (that’s bird watchers) heading out to compete across America in an annual event.

But all three also have their own agendas based on what’s going on (or rather what’s not) in their lives. Martin is a man about to retire, who’s trying to decide how to spend the rest of his life. Wilson’s in the throes of a mid-life crisis and Black would give anything to actually have a life. Together they set off to catalogue feathered friends and also cross a few items off their respective wish lists.

From the looks of the trailer, it appears to be a slightly worrying blend of life lessons and pratfalls, but we’re going to remain having faith in the three stars and the fact that The Devil Wears Prada’s David Frankel is behind the camera. Check out the promo and let us know your thoughts.

We’ll get a chance to judge properly when the comedy arrives in our cinemas on November 11.
