Ben Stiller’s new film, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, finds him filling his life with flights of fantasy and a very real quest. One of these threads sees him, if the new poster is to be believed, standing on a shark. Guess which one. You can also check out the new images from the film (arriving via Yahoo) in the gallery lower down the page.
Stiller directs and stars as the titular magazine worker, a nobody slaving away in the bowels of LIFE magazine managing the photo assets. To stave off crushing boredom and disappointment elsewhere in his life, he concocts elaborate fantasies where he’s an explorer or a Bourne-alike hero. What he really wants, though, is to ask out pretty co-worker Cheryl (Kristen Wiig).
So when a chance crops up to head out to investigate what happened to the latest shots from Sean Penn’s famous photographer (and friend), Walter may finally get his adventure for real. All of that sees Stiller putting some impressive vistas up on screen, particularly since he went to Iceland to shoot.
With Adam Scott, Shirley MacLaine, Kathryn Hahn and Patton Oswalt also among the cast, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty arrives on December 26.
