While awards prospects for Ben Stiller‘s “The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty” seem to be slim at this point, the movie still has every potential to be a big crowd-pleaser. Aiming squarely at the feel-good, heartwarming center, the remake of Danny Kaye‘s 1947 classic just wants you to live life to the fullest.
A brand new trailer has dropped for the Stiller directed and starring movie, and once again a big song is at the center, with Queen‘s “Bohemian Rhapsody” asking: “Is this the real life or is this just fantasy?” And the answer for Walter Mitty is both. The daydreaming Life magazine employee embarks on a grand adventure dreaming that it will bring him closer to his love, played by Kristen Wiig. So yeah, romance, comedy and big epic scope are the elements that Fox are selling and we’ll soon find out if audiences are game.
“The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty” arrives on Christmas Day. Check out the trailer along with a new clip from the movie below.
