The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller

New Poster for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

I’m really looking forward to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (click the link to see the trailer) when it comes out this Christmas.  It looks like they may have gotten this right after over 15 years in development.  Mitty stars Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Adam Scott and Shirley MacLaine.  Official synopsis below.  By the way, if you dug the song in the trailer (which I did and looked it up), it’s “Dirty Paws” by Of Monsters and Men.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is based on 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 (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.

One thought on “New Poster for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”

  1. Awesome trailer, awesome poster. The image kind of reminds me of Being There. I’m a sucker for this kind of meta-material: films about dreamers and lunatics and the nature of reality. I’ve loved the Thurber story since I was a child, and it looks like they’ve successfully expanded it.
    On another note, I’ve always believed there was a better actor hidden somewhere inside Stiller (have you SEEN Mystery Men?) and this film is looking to prove me right.
