John Lennon may have said it best with the line from Imagine, “You know I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.” Walter Mitty is a dreamer as we can see in in 20th Century Fox’s imaginative trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. He’s a pathetically average guy toiling away his days in a cubicle pining for a girl who doesn’t know he exists. In his mind, however, he is a great adventurer who traverses the globe and conquers all obstacles before him. But when an obstacle presents itself in real life, Walter must make the ultimate decision — keep living life through his imagination and others or step out of his 9 to 5 humdrum existence and actually live for the first time. Based on the novel “My World — And Welcome To It” by James Thurber, audiences can expect some wonderfully affecting moments to go along with the weird and comedic. Give it a watch.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty stars Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Adam Scott, Patton Oswalt, Shirley MacLaine and Kathryn Hahn.
Ben Stiller directs and stars in 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.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty fantasizes in US theaters on December 25, 2013 and UK theaters on December 26, 2013.
