"Have you done anything noteworthy or mentionable?"

After impressing the crowds at this years Cinema Con, 20th Century Fox is keeping the marketing train going for Ben Stiller's latest passion project, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty, with this latest series of one sheets and new trailer.

A remake of the classic 1947 film (itself an adaption of a short story by James Thurber), the story sees Stiller play bored office worker Walter Mitty, who spends his days creating elaborate fantasy worlds for himself in which he gets to live a life of adventure while romancing co-worker Kristen Wiig.

However, when both their jobs are threatened in the real world, Walter finally shakes off his lethargy and sets off on a global journey to introduce some genuine excitement into his life.

The trailer gives us our first look at Sean Penn (Milk), Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids) and Adam Scott (Step Brothers) as Stiller's support, whilst delivering a flavour of the film's soaring tone.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty received a mixed reaction at the New York Film Festival earlier this month, but we'll get a chance to see for ourselves when it lands in the UK on 26 December.
