Ben Stiller stars in new trailer for The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty: watch now

The new trailer for The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty has arrived online, starring Ben Stiller as the titular fantasist who decides to make the break from his safe 9-5 existence into something a little more exciting.

Stiller plays Mitty, a mild-mannered office drone who spends his days fantasising about what life might be like if he had the nerve to ask out his beautiful co-worker (Kristen Wiig).

However, when the magazine he works on announces its closure, Walter decides to get out there and find some adventure in the real world…

Take a look at the new trailer, below:

If nothing else, Stiller's new film looks visually stunning, as Mitty's imagination proves itself truly boundless. On top of that, the dynamic between Stiller and Wiig seems genuinely sweet, and one that audiences should find easy to root for…

Directed by Stiller and co-starring Adam Scott, Patton Oswalt and Sean Penn, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty opens in the UK on 26 December 2013.
