Amy Adams' Anna is ready to propose to her boyfriend on Leap Day when her plane lands on a countryside in Ireland instead of Dublin and she meets Matthew Goode's Declan.
Universal Pictures has released the first teaser trailer for "Leap Year". Debuted by MSN, the video gives a look at the comedy film that follows one woman's determined quest to get married to the perfect guy, despite what fate has in store for her.
Anna, a girl who is always in trouble, is expecting to get an engagement ring from longtime boyfriend, Jeremy, during a romantic dinner. When their four-year anniversary passes without a marriage proposal, she decides to take matters into her own hands. She then follows Jeremy to Dublin to get down on her knee February 29, known as Leap Day, during when women are allowed to propose to men based on Irish tradition.
However, her plane lands on the other side of Ireland and she is forced to enlist the help of handsome and surly Declan to get her across the country. As the two travel across the Emerald Isle, they discover that the road to love can take them to very unexpected places.
"Julie & Julia" actress Amy Adams stars opposite Matthew Goode to portray Anna and Declan respectively in "Leap Year". They are joined by Adam Scott, Bill Nighy, and Kaitlin Olson for supporting roles. Written by Simon Beaufoy alongside Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont, the Anand Tucker-directed film eyes a January 8, 2010 release date.
