From the opening moments of the first trailer of “The Secret Walter Mitty,” it was obvious that this was no standard Ben Stiller movie.
Set to Of Monsters and Men and featuring almost no dialogue, the preview for the imaginative drama gave little insight into the film’s plot, other than that Walter Mitty was dissatisfied with his average life.
While the new trailer may not match the first’s emotional resonance, it makes up for it by revealing more information about the plot.
Per "The Atlantic Wire," Stiller stars as Walter Mitty, an employee at “Life” magazine who loses a photo negative from the mag’s final issue, setting him on a real-life adventure that might finally match the journeys he takes in his mind.
More of Walter’s interactions with the woman he secretly loves, played by Kristen Wiig, are shown, as well.
“The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” will be released on Christmas Day.
