The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Trailer: Ben Stiller Escapes

Here is the the long-awaited trailer for Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty — a film he both directs and stars in, alongside Kristen Wiig, Sean Penn, Adam Scott's beard, and an appropriately twee soundtrack from Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men. (You assumed it was Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, didn't you?) Based on James Thurber's 1939 short story, the film was the subject of a New Yorker story that focused, in part, on its budget troubles. Sure, we've known about Adam Scott's beard for some time now, but did you also know that Sean Penn appears as himself?
