Second Trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

A second trailer has been released for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller’s latest film as director and star. While Stiller hasn’t impressed for a while, his last two films as director (Zoolander and Tropic Thunder) were pretty damn good. The second trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty offers new footage and some further plot details. This film could fall either way; an inspiring and creative dramedy, or a silly and embarrassing attempt at being “deep” – we’ll go with the former.

The story was previously adapted in 1947. Norman Z. McLeod directed Danny Kaye in the lead role.

Check out the official synopsis, along with one of the film’s posters, underneath the video.
