Movie Trailer: Walter Mitty has lots of potential

Fox has released the new trailer for Ben Stiller’s latest directorial film, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, which looks pretty interesting actually. In the movie, Stiller plays photo editor at Life Magazine, who is quiet and looking to escape his day-to-day life by going into these crazy-weird fantasies. The movie co-stars Adam Scott, Sean Penn, Patton Oswalt and Shirley MacLaine and is based on a short story by James Thurber.

This looks much different from what we’ve seen so far from Stiller and looks like it could be really good. The cinematography looks great as well as the acting.

What do you think?

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty opens December 25.

  1. I am actually pretty excited for this movie. I remember really liking the short story when I read it in high school (I’ve always been a bit of a day dreamer too), so I’ll be excited to see what they do with it on screen. However, one thing, after watching this trailer, it’s got to be a mistake to try to read the short story, then go see the movie. While the premise and moral of the story will be the same, I think they’re going to be completely different stories

    • I’ve heard that from several people too who’ve seen the trailer and read the short story that it’s pretty different from the original. I’ve never read it but the trailer makes the movie look pretty promising.
