Twentieth Century Fox are delighted to announce the theatrical release of THE BIG YEAR on December 2nd 2011 across the UK & Ireland.

Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson are at a crossroads: one is experiencing a mid-life crisis; another, a late-life crisis; and the third, a far from ordinary “no-life crisis.” From David Frankel, the director of The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me, comes a sophisticated comedy about three friendly rivals who, tired of being ruled by obligations and responsibilities, dedicate a year of their lives to following their dreams. Their big year takes them on a cross-country journey of wild and life-changing adventures.

Synopsis: In this comedy for grown-ups, Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson portray three men from different walks of life, each facing unique personal challenges. The one thing they share is an uncommon passion for…bird watching. In the biggest competition of their biggest year, they undertake an unforgettable trek through North America, fall in and out of love, engage in hilarious and bizarre adventures, and form friendships that will last a lifetime. Directed by David Frankel (“Marley and Me,” “The Devil Wears Prada”).
