Ben Stiller‘s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty has started screening for critics and most of the reviews have been slightly negative, claiming that the film is typical surface-level Holiday garbage and also a giant advertisement for many companies. They also trashed Vince Vaughn‘s Delivery Man, which I enjoyed a great deal (read my review right here).
I’m still openly excited for Stiller’s latest, because it looks like a big step up for him as a director and also an actor. Finally, Stiller seems to be tackling some more serious material and from a visual standpoint, the film looks fresh, funny and exciting.
I just hope it ends up being as enjoyable and as thoughtful as it looks.
Today, we’ve got a second full-length trailer to throw at you. I’d suggest avoiding it if you feel like you’ve already seen enough, but I’ve posted it below, just in case you haven’t seen much promotion for the film.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty opens on December 25th, 2013.
Check out the trailer below:
