Due to hit cinemas this Christmas, Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty has fast become one of the strongest Oscar contenders of the season, making a fantastic debut at the NYFF – you can read our review here.
With just over two months to go before the film arrives in theatres on both sides of the Atlantic, Fox has released a new international trailer, following on from the first full-length trailer that landed earlier in the month.
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.
Stiller takes centre stage on both sides of the camera, with Kristen Wiig starring opposite in the female lead. And joining the two is a stellar cast, led by Adam Scott, Sean Penn, Kathryn Hahn, Patton Oswalt, and Shirley MacLaine.
Stiller is directing from a script penned by Steve Conrad (The Pursuit of Happyness), remaking the 1947 film of the same name, based on a short story by James Thurber.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty will be released in the US on Christmas Day, with its UK release date fortunately following just a day later on 26th December.
