After it had been in development for years, it’s fair to say that no one was holding out too much hope for The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. However it finally went into production with Ben Stiller directing and starring. Then a few weeks ago the interest went through the roof when a lucky few were treated to a few scenes from the movie, which met a truly rapturous response and even had people talking about Oscars.
Now we can get a look ourselves with the first trailer, which does look absolutely gorgeous.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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.’
It’ll be in cinemas this Christmas.
