A new trailer and poster were just released for Ben Stiller’s Christmas Day release The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The film, directed by and starring Stiller, was adapted from James Thurber’s short story of Walter Mitty, a man who escapes his anonymous life by daydreaming himself into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance, and action.
When his job and that of his co-worker (Kristen Wiig) at Life magazine are threatened, Walter embarks on a real-world global journey in search of an estranged photographer (Sean Penn) and a very important photo negative. The new trailer shows how Walter transitions from his real life to that of his daydreams. The new poster for the film features Ben Stiller running through New York’s Times Square, where all the billboards are papered with photos of himself on different adventures.
