The new "international trailer" for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is six-minutes long. Apparently "international people" have time to watch six-minute trailers while they sip their international coffee and eat their international pancakes. It makes me sick.
But regardless of my feelings toward generic foreigners, the trailer itself looks pretty cool, aside from the music. It's so damned inspirational it makes me want to go out there in the real world and live, and that's the exact opposite of what a trailer is meant to do. The studio wants your ass in a seat, not running around on the side of some mountain trying to find happiness. As such, they better dial it back on the children singing in harmony or else everyone's going to be too busy living life to see this film.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty opens on Christmas Day.
