The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is the story of an ordinary man, Walter Mitty (Stiller), with an extraordinary imagination. As a director Stiller has put together a fairly impressive track record of success (ignoring The Cable Guy which has its own place in infamy for many reasons).
It took years for this version to be made, with countless of actors attached and then quickly unattached. This visually playful tale goes out of its way to stir its target audience with obvious life-inspiring messages and cheap emotions, which are not worthy of Stiller as a director or an actor. A bright, alert, post-modern actor, Stiller restructures the famous tale to suit his specifications, turning it into a star vehicle, rather than servicing the fabulist material, which still holds potential allure for contemporary viewers. Strangely enough, the story is less of a fantasy or screwball comedy, as it was in 1947, and more of a serious, often solemn meditation about an existential crisis of a man living a life of quiet desperation.
Thurber’s indelible short story, which first appeared in 1939 in The New Yorker, was a product of its time, a farcical satire of American heroism, and so was the movie, reflecting the optimism of the immediate post-WWII era. Conrad’s script centers on a the titular employee, stuck in the photo department of Life magazine; never mind that Life ceased publication over a decade ago! Stashed away at his desk, he is surrounded with camera negatives which are like museum pieces because few people still shoot on celluloid. Assigned to track down the “quintessential” cover image from the magazine’s star photographer (ironically cast by Sean Penn), Walter goes to Greenland, of all places. Walter drifts into his hallucinations, showing growing excitement into his daily routine over the course of the film. Walter’s world travels to Greenland, Iceland and Noshaq mountain, Afghanistan provide exotic backdrops, adding much color to the proceedings.
The production values are sleek and polished in every department, though it’s hard not to notice the extensive products placement throughout the film.
Twentieth Century Fox heeft een nieuwe trailer en posters vrijgegeven voor hun aankomende film, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
Zou de regisseur van The Cable Guy komend awardseizoen met The Secret Life of Walter Mitty daadwerkelijk mee gaan doen om de prijzen?
Het project ziet er in ieder geval dusdanig uniek uit dat zelfs mensen met een hekel aan standaard Stiller-komedies best wel eens om zouden kunnen slaan. Ron Howard en Tom Hanks sloegen opnieuw de handen ineen voor een derde Dan Brown-verfilming.
Wie is - nu Leonardo DiCaprio er inmiddels één heeft - volgens jou de beste nog werkende acteur zonder Oscar op zak? Ben-Hur vertelt het meeslepende verhaal van Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), een prins die vals wordt beschuldigd van verraad door zijn geadopteerde broer Messala (Toby Kebbell), een officier in het Romeinse leger.
Beroofd van zijn titel en gescheiden van zijn familie en de vrouw waarvan hij houdt (Nazanin Boniadi), wordt Judah gedwongen tot slavernij. We gebruiken cookies om interactiviteit op de pagina mogelijk the maken en om je te beschermen tegen CSRF.

Often overlooked with his enormous comedic success is that he has a fairly diverse  and well rounded background of projects. I definitely am one of those grinches who complains about the flow of movies, and while this one definitely felt strung out a bit, it wasn’t a deal breaker.


The Secret Life of Walter Mitty definitely feels like a big test forward for him in terms of risk and challenge as he ventures pretty far away from his previous work.
She too is tasked with playing an assortment of characters, and in addition to be equally as funny as Stiller, she also has a knack for dramatic work.
He grew up with the many great films of the 1980’s before having his world rocked after seeing The Usual Suspects. For a long time, it was going to be a New Line project with Jim Carrey, then Owen Wilson, and finally Sacha Baron Cohen.
Stiller, never a sentimental performer, is a very different actor than all of the aforementioned actors. Likely to get mixed to negative critical response, “Secret Life of Walter Mitty” is arguably the weakest American premiere shown at this year’s festival (the other two are “Captain Phillips,” which served as opening night, and Spike Jonze’s “Hers,” its closer).
Conrad has shrewdly kept the core idea of how fantasy and daydreaming can hold emancipating powers in a mundane life, while grounding the tale in more realistic and immediate concerns, such as downsized economy, changing pop culture, new social media.
Stiller plays his (anti)hero as a frustrated ordinary man, who knows he is capable of doing more, namely, be the kind of man he had always dreamed of. When the venue is taken over by some greedy execs, its fate is sealed with the impending final print issue. In an ordinary New York apartment, the shy Walter stares at the eHarmony dating page of his co-worker Cheryl (comedienne Kristen Wiig), debating whether to make the first move.
The new location offers opportunities for derring-do, jumping out of helicopters, swimming with sharks, skateboarding toward a volcano. Walter strikes up a friendship with the site’s technical support agent (Patton Oswalt), who calls Walter during his global odyssey. Walter’s mother (a suitably irritating Shirley MacLaine) and sister (Kathryn Hahn) try to dominate Walter, who resists being the timid nebbish they expect-—and want–him to be. Relying on fading in and out of Walter’s reveries, Stiller shows an inventive way of integrating his text, from the opening credits to SMS message into Walter’s various environments.
Ben Stiller speelt de hoofdrol in deze film naast Kristen Wiig, Shirley MacLaine, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn en Sean Penn.
Op zijn beurt is deze weer gebaseerd op een kortverhaal van James Thurber waarin een pantoffelheld zijn frustraties probeert te overwinnen door zich zijn leven voor te stellen als onbevreesde vliegtuigpiloot, briljante dokter, enz. Na de teaser is er nu een eerste volledige trailer voor de nieuwe film van en met Ben Stiller. Stiller speelt een dagdromende foto-editor voor Life Magazine die een wereldreis onderneemt om zowel zijn eigen baan als die van zijn lieftallige collega (Kristen Wiig, met Stiller te zien op de foto boven) te redden. Bekijk Nicolas Cage in een nieuwe verfilming van het waargebeurde verhaal over het marineschip. Als zijn baan en die van zijn collega (Kristen Wigg) op de tocht komen te staan, komt Walter ook in het echte leven in actie.
Hij keert na jaren op zee terug naar zijn vaderland op zoek naar wraak, maar in plaats daarvan vindt hij verlossing.
Despite working in creative and challenging projects such as Reality Bites and Greenberg, Stiller probably will always be known for his wacky antics from films such as Meet the Parents and Zoolander, and justifiably so since he did such a good job.
When a negative problem comes up, Walter is forced into a real adventure, hunting down his idol, photographer Sean O’Connell (Sean Penn).
As a trade-off for the pace, the movie really capitalizes on the many locations utilized during the movie with beautiful cinematography as it travels all around the world.


The way she is able to effortlessly capture her characters is amazing, and while she won’t be winning any Academy Awards this year, she has the talent of someone who probably should one day. But there is a soul to the film that is quite enjoyable and a craftsmanship to the production that probably will be a strong calling card for Ben Stiller going forward.
He moved to Washington State to go to the University of Washington, and currently any free time he currently has is split between working on film projects and watching films. The parade of directors who showed interest in helming the remake was equally impressive, including Steven Spielberg. When you cast Stiller, he comes with a baggage, an established screen image that here works against the movie’s dubious ideological intent.
Among many negative effects, the acquisition means that many of the staff workers would lose their jobs. Oswalt is Walter’s virtual sidekick on a quest to transform himself from an ordinary to an extraordinary man.
But underneath that comedic facade is a talented multi-skilled entertainer who is a risk taker and might have just taken on his most ambitious project, one that just might help change everyone’s expectations of him. I’m not certain about the commercial viability of this movie, but visually it is his best work yet, and it is risky and complex emotionally. She is in that Melissa Leo camp of actresses who just seem to embody the characters they are playing, and it is hard to tell where the character ends and the actress begins.
It might not be the best film of the year, but it is the perfect kind of film for a Christmas release and probably will be a pleaser for the whole family. The question is, will the timid Walter be able to seize the day and “Just Do It,” which serves as the film’s overall motto. That he succeeds by reassuring Walter that he resembles Indiana Jones and one of the Strokes singer only shows how obvious and desperate the narrative is in being poignant and relevant.
With his latest work as both the director and star in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Stiller goes a long way towards helping to re-imagine his work as both an actor and director. Stiller did an impressive job of blending together a wide variety of cinematic styles within the movie as each of the day-dream vignettes are quite unique. Hopefully she continues to capitalize on her dramatic ability, and perhaps this might give her a platform to showcase her wide range of skills. The results are enjoyable, if a bit unremarkable, but the significance of the movie goes far beyond just what is seen on the screen. Beyond the two leads, the film benefits greatly from nice subtle performances by Sean Penn, Adam Scott and Shirley MacLaine – who all have small roles but each are essentially in their own way in driving the plot forward.
Stiller’s acting compliments his work as a director perfectly, an ability he has shown  he is very adept at in the past (Zoolander, Tropic Thunder).
Here he does a great job of creating an everyman caught in his grand dreams, something incredibly relatable for most people.
There are moments of humor, but those are often the least interesting moments of the character.
