‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’: Ben Stiller’s Wannabee ‘Eternal Sunshine’ Gets Its First Trailer

'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty'

Here’s the first trailer for Ben Stiller‘s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty which not only stars Stiller, but was directed by him as well. It’s based on James Thurber’s 1939 short story and co-stars Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Shirley MacLaine and oh my god what is that rug on Adam Scott‘s face?

In case it wasn’t clear, the movie’s about a daydreamer who goes on a real life adventure when his job and that of a co-worker’s are threatened. Stiller’s pretty clearly trying to duplicate the success of Jim Carrey in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind with this comedy-drama, indie-action tale. The twee-as-shit soundtrack by Of Monsters and Men is extra pander-y.

The film is set to bounce joyously into theaters this Christmas.
