Trailer Watch: Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The trailer for Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty was attached to The Wolverine last weekend, and I was pretty impressed by the tone of the film. A remake of the 1947 Danny Kaye film of the same name (based on a James Thurber short story), the film centers around a repressed dude (Stiller) with a big imagination, and blah blah. Character drama and special effects ensue.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty co-stars Kristen Wiig, Kathryn Hahn, Sean Penn, Adam Scott, Patton Oswalt, and Shirley MacLaine, and it opens on Christmas Day.

Trailer Watch: Hot Rod director Akiva Schaffer’s Neighborhood Watch

The Sun has the trailer for Akiva Schaffer’s Neighborhood Watch, starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and The IT Crowd‘s Richard Ayoade. It’s just a couple of clips, but the second one got a good laugh out of me.

The screenplay was written by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (Superbad). Neighborhood Watch hits the US on July 22.

(Thanks for the heads up Joe Dunn and Ethan Anderton!)
