The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Trailer: Ben Stiller Shows His Pensive Side

by at . Comments

We've gotten some great looks at upcoming holiday season movies already. This 12 Years a Slave trailer along with this Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom trailer seem to hint at a cut-throat awards race.

With this new The Secret Life of Walter Mitty trailer, it appears as if Ben Stiller might be stepping into the ring as well.

In this remake of the 1947 movie, Stiller plays Walter Mitty, a LIFE magazine proofreader who leads a nondescript real life, but who goes on adventures indescribable in his daydreams.

In a time of trailers that are often in your face, packed with all the "best parts" of a film, and generally way too long, this The Secret Life of Walter Mitty trailer seems to find the sweet spot. Gets your attention, tells just enough of the plot to make you curious, and is beautifully put together to boot. 

Makes the wait until December 25th for the premiere of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty seem so long.
