New Full-Length Trailer & NYFF Press Conference For Ben Stiller’s ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’

Written by on October 7, 2013 

When our first trailer for Ben Stiller’s remake of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty landed this summer, it looked like a major step-up for the director in scope and heart. Tracking a daydreaming magazine photo manager who embarks on an adventure to find a missing negative, the film has now premiered at New York Film Festival, where the response was less than effusive.

We were on the mixed-positive side, as our full review said, “unabashedly nice, crowd-pleasing, and earnest, the movie’s globe-spanning scale is perhaps too daunting a task for Stiller’s modest formal ambitions. But taken purely as a pleasant, holiday-season studio release, there’s really not much to take issue with here, especially because Stiller’s front-and-center presence — his choices as a director are always in permanent harmony with his character’s emotional state — effectively gives the film the feeling of a passion piece, making it easy to forgive and even disregard potential nitpicks.”

A new full-length trailer has now landed from 20th Century Fox, expanding more of our story and including some actual dialogue. We get a bearded Adam Scott sending Stiller on his mission, an introduction to Patton Oswalt‘s voice and more of the adventure. Check it out, embedded below, along with the full 25-minute NYFF press conference featuring Stiller, Kristen Wiig and more.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty opens on December 25th.
