Stylish Trailer For Ben Stiller’s Walter Mitty Should Make You Sit Up And Pay Attention

Ben Stiller might not have been given all due credit for his work as director, not to date, but Walter Mitty is so impeccably styled, and appears to be so full of expressive camera and editing ideas, that I think he’s about to attract a lot of attention.

In isolation, and concentrated into a dense little trailer like this, some of those shots seem a little too bold, but I understand that watching full scenes play out – as attendees to CinemaCon did earlier in the year – the film’s lightness of touch becomes apparent.

I hope Walter Mitty is as good as I’m hearing. This trailer suggests it might be. The US release is set for Christmas Day, so I’d expect a UK release in January or February.

UPDATE: UK release now announced as happening on Boxing Day.
