Could Walter Mitty be the Eternal Sunshine fix we've been waiting for?

Ben Stiller is lost in a dreamworld in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, adapted from James Thurber's famous short story of the same name. Just a tiny glimpse of this movie created a ton of buzz at CinemaCon last spring. Fingers crossed this will be the next Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

The premise is simple: "A timid magazine photo manager who lives life vicariously through daydreams embarks on a true-life adventure when a negative goes missing." But the visuals paired with these imaginations are so gorgeous (so far), you can't help but get sucked into Ben's brain. We're super optimistic about this one.

UPDATE: Here's a new video.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty hits theaters on December 25th.
