The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
- What it's about: Ben Stiller plays the title character, an ordinary office worker who escapes to imaginary worlds. When his job is threatened, he takes his co-worker (Kristen Wiig) along for the ride.
- Why we're interested: Stiller is directing in addition to starring in the movie, and though this project looks very different than his previous times behind the camera (Tropic Thunder, Zoolander), this has an especially endearing, magical feel to it.
- When it opens: Dec. 25
- Watch the trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
