Well, isn’t this a surprise? Ben Stiller’s newest film is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty which he directs and stars in also. The trailer is pure brilliance. There are no spoken words until the end. It is a bit longer than a teaser trailer at two minutes, but it gives us a great look at the film without giving too much away. The song used in the trailer is “Dirty Paws” by Of Monsters and Men and it is perfect. The film looks to visually amazing. A guy working at LIFE magazine has some of the many places LIFE goes to come to life for him. Our first glimpse of this is a photo of Sean Penn in Haiti coming to life and inviting him to join his world. I believe this is going to be a combination of drama and comedy, especially with Kristen Wiig in it also. And who knew Ben Stiller could be a sexy mountaineer?
The film stars Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Shirley MacLaine, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn, and Sean Penn. Steve Conrad and James Thurber wrote the screenplay.
“Ben Stiller directs and stars in THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY, James Thurber’s classic story of a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker (Kristen Wiig) are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.”
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is in theatres December 25, 2013.
