CMJ is delighted to be screening a sneak preview of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty during CMJ Music Marathon 2013 tonight, Wednesday, October 16. The film stars Ben Stiller as a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker (Kristen Wiig) are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world, embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.
Stiller also directs the film, which is based on the iconic short story of the same name by James Thurber, first published in The New Yorker, in 1939. Along with SNL alum Kristen Wiig, Academy Award winners Sean Penn and Shirley MacLaine join the supporting cast with Adam Scott and Kathryn Hahn.
