Yahoo Movies has premiered the new full-length trailer for the Ben Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty”. The film is a new adaptation of James Thurber’s famed short story, and the subsequent Danny Kaye 1947 musical fantasy film based on it.
The first trailer took many by surprise and delight a few months back, the film essentially looking like the lovechild of Wes Anderson & Michel Gondry, or a less esoteric Spike Jonze.
This past weekend the film premiered at the New York Film Festival to a very divided reaction from critics that spilled out into a minor Twitter skirmish. Those that loved it think it a serious awards contender, but the question is will it have enough wide support.
