There have been no shortage of teasers, trailers, and clips for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller‘s latest directorial effort, but for the most part the footage has been revealed in brief one- or two-minute increments.

Based on the 1939 short story by James Thurber and the 1947 movie inspired by same, Stiller’s Walter Mitty follows a timid Life Magazine photo editor who constantly daydreams to escape his dull life.

Whether it will be finished in time for a July 11, 2014 release date — an ambitious plan even under prime circumstances — remains to be seen. Read More »
