The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Trailer Makes Photos (and Sean Penn) Come to Life


The trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, the upcoming movie that Ben Stiller both directs and stars in alongside everyone you want to be besties with -- including Kristen Wiig, Shirley MacLaine, Patton Oswalt, Sean Penn, Adam Scott, and Kathryn Hahn -- has finally arrived. Stiller's Secret Life of Walter Mitty is loosely based on a story James Thurber published in the New Yorker in 1939. Where Thurber's Walter Mitty is a man who escapes his nagging wife by imagining himself in all sorts of war/hospital/spy drama scenarios, Stiller's is an unmarried photo researcher at Life magazine whose fantasies are more far-reaching. The trailer itself is visually epic but unrevealing: we learn that Mitty is interested in Wiig's character, that Adam Scott absolutely needs to shave right now, and that Sean Penn plays himself coming alive from a picture. The rest of the trailer shows Mitty's flights of fancy in various pretty ways, set to the twee tune of music by Of Monsters and Men. Watch above.
