First 'Secret Life of Walter Mitty' Trailer Looks Sort of Amazing

Walter Mitty

It's awfully easy to be cynical about Hollywood remakes, because most of them are about nothing more interesting than money. But for at least the few glorious minutes presented in its first trailer, Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is about so much more -- including mankind's universal desire to periodically pull away from the mundane moorings of our lives and soar through the bright windows of imagination that show us the better, stronger, more interesting human beings we were always meant to be.

Of course, it could always still suck. But if this trailer is anything to go on, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is going to be one hell of a Christmas treat when it bows on December 25, 2013. Check it out below.
