The first trailer for the Fox 2000 comedy doesn’t focus on the bird watching aspect of the film, but rather the location-hopping of the protagonists. All three men are looking for meaning in their lives, and set out on the competition to spot the most rare birds as a way to find a purpose for themselves.
According to the trailer, the project, directed by David Frankel (Marley & Me), promises plenty of physical humor and location jumping, from snowy mountains to dry deserts. “Most people wake up one day and realize they didn’t do everything they wanted to do,” says Martin’s character.
The film is based n Mark Obmascik’s best-selling non-fiction book, “The Big Year: A Tale of Man, Nature, and Fowl Obsession.” Jim Parsons, Rashida Jones, Anjelica Huston and Dianne Wiest also star in the film. The Big Year is set to open on October 14.
