The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Just last summer we got an interesting look at Ben Stiller and Kristen Wiig looking more than a bit aged in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Now an official first look photo has surfaced featuring Stiller without any geriatric make-up, but in some sort of desolate location. Looking dirty and grizzled, carrying only a backpack and a longboard, we're not really sure what's going on in this picture. The film sees Stiller on an adventure as he tracks down a missing image taken by a photographer (Sean Penn). Stiller explains, "It becomes a detective story, and he ends up being more connected to who he is at the end of the movie.”

Here's the first look photo from Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty via LA Times:

Stiller plays a timid magazine photo manager who daydreams of exciting adventures, only to get into an adventure of his own when he goes in search of a missing photo negative with Kristen Wiig, Patton Oswalt, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn and Sean Penn also starring. The film will hit theaters everywhere December 25th, 2013.

        Tru dat. Not near the comedic talent his father is.

    This sounds nothing like the short story, I'm curious and hesitant to see how this turns out.
  • Honestly, I'm just hoping that on the Blu ray release they also include the original movie with Danny Kaye. Much the same as the disappointing "The Day the Earth Stood Stlil" remake did.
