WALTER MITTY, First Trailer

If you’ve had trouble imaging Zoolander as that epitome of milquetoasts, Walter Mitty, below is the first trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, based on James Thurber’s 1939 short story.

The story  was also made into a 1947 movie starring Danny Kaye. Although this is often referred to as a remake of the  Kaye film, Stiller, who stars in and directs this version, says it has “its own tone.” One major difference from the previous movie; in this one, Mitty works for Life magazine, rather as a pulp-fiction writer.

The movie arrives in theaters this Christmas. Also in the cast are Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Shirley MacLaine, Kathryn Hahn, and Adam Scott.
