‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’

The trailer for Ben Stiller’s newest film (and a rumored Oscar contender), The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, packages together fantasy, adventure, and impressive cinematography—and channels some Spike Jonze style. With very little dialogue and set to a poignant Of Monsters and Men’s “Dirty Paws” track, the clip shows Stiller as a Life magazine employee who escapes his drab life by daydreaming about epic treks, falling through skyscraper windows, and jumping out of moving helicopters. In this Stiller-directed production—which is based on a 1939 short story by James Thurber—Kristin Wiig portrays his romantic interest, and it also stars Adam Scott and Sean Penn. The film will be released on Christmas day.

‘American Hustle’

Writer and director David O. Russell reunites with the cast members from two of his movies, The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook in American Hustle—to be released in theaters on December 25. Touting a stellar cast including Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, and Amy Adams, the film is set against a ‘70s and ‘80s backdrop based on a retelling of the real-life Abscam FBI sting operation that enlisted the help of con-artists and brought down a number of Congressmen.

‘About Time’

Rachel McAdams is starring in another time travel movie, but this time it won’t be as dramatic as 2009’s The Time Traveler’s Wife. In About Time—spawned from the mind of Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral)—she plays the love interest of Domnhall Gleeson’s character. He discovers he has the ability to travel through time and redo each awkward moment that takes place in this British romantic comedy to be released in the U.S. on November 1.

  1. Not knowing about Ben Stiller’s movie, I saw his trailer at theater this week. At first, I wasn’t sure about the movie but when I saw the title, I knew I had to go; I used to teach that story to teens in junior high and know how important its message is.
