New 'The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty' Trailer

The new Ben Stiller directed film The Secret Life of Walter Mitty has just received a new trailer.  The movie is based on a short story by James Thurber and tells the story a man who escapes his hum-drum life through day-dreaming of fantastic adventures.  Beyond Stiller, the cast of the remake is filled out by likable people like Kristen Wiig, Kathryn Hahn, Adam Scott, Patton Oswalt, Shirley MacLaine and Sean Penn.  The movie is set to release on December 25, 2013.

This is the most interested I have been in a Ben Stiller project since Greenberg, but I won't be getting my hopes up until I actually see the film.  The trailer doesn't come off as completely cohesive and it is a little tough to see what tone they want out of the movie.  From the trailer below I get the distinct impression this could end up being anything from a train-wreck to amazing to dull.  If we can get a movie that rises to the level of say Stranger Than Fiction, I'll be a happy guy.

So, let me know what you guys think.  Do you like the trailer?  Are you a fan of Stiller when he directs himself?  Does this look promising or horrible?  Sound off in the comments below!
