I Give it a Year

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. The Vincent Price Collection Six of Vincent Price‘s horror pictures for AIP are collected here in HD including The Fall of the House of Usher, The Pit & the Pendulum, The Haunted Palace, The Masque of the Red Death, Witchfinder General, and The Abominable Dr. Phibes. Scream Factory hits another one out of the park with this fantastically produced and packaged collection of films featuring Price in all his glory. All but the final film bear some connection to the works of Edgar Allan Poe, a couple of them being very tenuous connections at best, and three were directed by Roger Corman. The movies run the gamut from good (Palace) to great (Masque) to WTF (Phibes), and they all look better than they ever have thanks to new HD restorations and a bevy of extras. Price was always an interesting and underrated actor, and this set offers a glimpse at a fun and fascinating variety of performances.

I Give It A Year Trailer

It’s been awhile since we got a truly funny, delectably biting British rom-com shipped over America way. Where is this generation’s Four Weddings and A Funeral? Wither a new Bridget Jones’s Diary? We’d even accept the merry tears of Love, Actually at this point. And, apparently, the team over at Working Title Films is well aware of that, as the first trailer for their I Give It A Year proudly announces that it’s from the same team as both Bridget Jones and Love, Actually within its first ten seconds. Giving the people what they want! From writer and director (and Ali G alum) Dan Mazer, I Give It A Year follows the hilariously rocky trials and travails of Rose Byrne and Rafe Spall during their characters’ first year of marriage. They have…a lot of problems. Give the trailer for I Give It A Year a look after the break, and start placing your bets on just how long this marriage will last.

They always say that the first year of being married is the hardest. So hard, in fact, that watching newlyweds suffer through things can be pretty fertile grounds for comedy. Or at least that’s the bet writer/director Dan Mazer (Dog Bites Man) is making with his new romantic comedy I Give It A Year. This one tells the story of a horribly mismatched couple trying to survive their first year together, and from the title and the cast announced so far, it would seem that it also heavily involves the couple’s skeptical friends. Prometheus actor Rafe Spall is already set to play the husband, and according to a report from Variety, Anna Faris has agreed to join the film as his wife. That isn’t the end of things as far as casting news goes, though. Margin Call’s Simon Baker and Bridesmaids’ Rose Byrne are also signed up to play what are described as “strong supporting characters.” Whether that term is to be taken figuratively or literally, it presumably points to the fact that they will be the principal actors’ naysaying friends.
