Los Angeles, Dec 4: Actor Ben Stiller immortalised his hand and foot prints in cement outside Hollywood's Tcl Chinese Theatre IMAX.
"I've always loved the history of Hollywood and the history of the movies. It's very, very meaningful to me, and to be in any way a part of it is a dream come true," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Stiller as saying.
"I'm humbled, touched and very proud to know that wherever I go, long after I'm dead, my footprints will be here in Hollywood, being stood. »

Do not adjust your sets. This actually happened.
Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) has already hosted the EMAs, appeared in the advertising campaign for the new Dodge Durango and released his fictional autobiography, and the movie still won't be out for another three weeks.
The latest installment in Anchorman 2: The Press Tour Continues saw Burgundy appear on a North Dakota news station at the weekend. Ferrell plays it remarkably straight, reading from the autocue (he reads those out exactly, don't you know) and keeping improvisation to a minimum. It's probably the most real-life representation of the character, especially with the comically mundane VTs to which they throw ('grow your hair' month, a new easy-luggage system and a rubbish truck that caught on fire).

Last time Ben Stiller appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," Ellen gifted him with some underwear for his wife, so it only seems right that on his return to the show she would do the same for him.
Stiller, a "Star Trek" fan, was gifted with some very colorful underwear with communicator belt buckles and things like "Beam Me Up Scottie" and "Trekkie" written across the behind. They're the perfect gift, really.
Stiller also talked about putting his hand prints in cement for the legendary Tcl Chinese Theater in Hollywood. "It felt like a weird dream," he says. Tom Cruise being on hand to introduce the whole event certainly didn't make it not weird. The only person not in attendance was Ben's dad, Jerry Stiller. The veteran funny man wanted to be there for his son, but Ben told him he didn't have to. "He said, 'Please, I want to come out. »

Ben Stiller has left his mark on Hollywood Boulevard. The legendary actor and famous funnyman was honored with a hand and footprint ceremony at the Tcl Chinese Theatre today in Hollywood, and along with delivering a speech which showcased his known humor, Stiller was also praised by his good pal Tom Cruise. "He's a cinophile, like I am," Cruise told the crowd. "He loves movies, we talk about movies, he honors films, and here he is—you know Reality Bites is the first film that he directed. And I always knew that he wanted to direct from early on and you see all the range of films that he's directed—Reality Bites, Cable Guy and another classic, Zoolander—absolute »
Are Ben Stiller and Kristen Wiig the holiday movie season's cutest couple? Whatever the case, the pair definitely make a convincing match in Stiller's latest directorial effort "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," an update of the classic short story by James Thurber. Now Fox - in an effort to position the film as a "life-affirming" experience for holiday moviegoing audiences - has released an extended six-minute cut of the trailer, which features a closer look at the sorta-relationship between Walter (Stiller) and his love interest Cheryl (Wiig) and even more glimpses of Stiller engaging in extreme international activities as he »

Nearly everyone in the world has been guilty of daydreaming from time to time, escaping the drudgery of their day to day affairs with a short mental vacation. Those kinds of fantasies are a big part of Ben Stiller.s upcoming adaptation of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty - and though it also employs an uncomplicated plot involving a hunt for an elusive photographer and a love story, this is a film with a universally understood core narrative. Simple as it may seem, though, 20th Century Fox has released an unheard of six-minute trailer so international audiences might grasp the story a bit better. That said, I can.t imagine anyone domestic or abroad actually watching this thing on purpose. It.s longer than some short films, for goodness. sake! The new trailer, which comes to us via The Playlist, hurdles over getting audiences interested in the movie and »

No one really knows the power of the private dreams inside our heads . . . until they inspire our reality.

Call it an extended trailer or a shortened movie and what you end up with is this new six-minute trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (Fox; 12/25), which I will finally be seeing tonight. Directed by and starring Ben Stiller, Mitty is a remake of the 1947 Danny Kaye starrer, which itself was based on the 1939 short story by James Thurber. The story centers on Mitty (Stiller), a man who escapes his unexciting daily life by delving into elaborate daydreams in which he is suddenly a heroic character. Reviews have been very mixed across the board, which makes me even more intrigued. Based on some people I've heard from I could be in for a very long 114 minutes, but who knows, I've been surprised before. »

We’ve seen Ben Stiller do a number of noteworthy things in the previously-released trailers for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, be it jumping out of a helicopter into a shark-filled ocean, skateboarding through the backroads of Iceland or calling up Patton Oswalt on his cellphone while hiking in the Himalayas. How many of these acts take place in the real-world of the film – and how many take place within the mind of the eponymous milquetoast Mr. Mitty (Stiller) – remains to be determined.
A new extended trailer for the film run six minutes long (and includes previously-unseen footage), but fortunately it doesn’t spoil much about the plot that hadn’t already been revealed in previous clips. The scope of Stiller’s latest starring/directing effort – loosely based on the James Thurber short story that was previously adapted to ...

We understand that for overseas audiences, the words "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty" probably don't mean much. Even for North American audiences, there is a vague recollection that it was a 1947 movie starring Danny Kaye. So how to solve that knowledge gap? Well, for the folks at Fox India, it means erasing any signs of wonder from the movie if it results in selling tickets. A new, extensive six-minute long trailer for Ben Stiller's remake has arrived and it's essentially a walkthrough of the major plot points of the movie. In the lead role, Stiller plays the ordinary and lovelorn Walter Mitty, who embarks on a mission to find a photo negative all while hoping to impress a woman he works with. And it's a journey that takes him to unique corners of the globe....as you'll see here, detailed pretty thoroughly. There's nothing really spoilery here per se, »

20th Century Fox has released a new six minute trailer for its upcoming feel good action-dramedy, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
“A day-dreamer 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 are threatened, he 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.”
The film is based on a short story by James Thurber, written back in 1942. This is the second film adaptation of the story, with the first being a 1947 Danny Kaye vehicle with the same name. This current adaptation has been in development for some time. At one stage, Jim Carrey would’ve played the title role.
It looks like a film that could be a surprise Oscar contender, with its heartfelt, emotional tone and uplifting message. »

“Are you Mitty? Is this wish fulfillment for you?” Roach recalls asking Stiller about the movie’s tale of a middle-aged dreamer who embarks on a life-changing, globe-trotting adventure that finds him skateboarding down a highway in Iceland and swimming with a shark in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic.
It’s a question the ambitious Stiller gets often, so that when Roach, the man who directed him in the first two “Meet the Parents” films, inquired, he didn’t bat an eyelash. “Yeah, of course,” Stiller replied. “I think that’s what made it relatable.”
It’s not that the multihyphenate, who’s also a producer on the pic, necessarily identifies with the character, but he understands the draw. »

Rugged treks through a snowy tundra, death-defying leaps from a helicopter piloted by a drunk schlub, a daring attempt to get Kristen Wiig’s attention on eHarmony: This epic trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty has it all.
By now, you’re probably familiar with Ben Stiller’s adaptation of James Thurber’s classic tale of daydreaming and ennui, memorably adapted once before into a 1947 classic starring Danny Kaye. But if not, here’s the deal: Stiller directed and stars as Mitty, an utterly average office drone with an overactive fantasy life. After discovering a mysteriously missing photo negative, »

Remember back in May when the movie theaters complained about how long trailers were becoming? Well, Ben Stiller has basically given them the finger with this new six-minute trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. This new look fills in more of the story about Mitty going on a worldwide adventure to track down a lost negative from photographer Sean Penn, in hopes of winning Kristen Wiig's heart. The film opens on Christmas day. Hopefully, Mitty eventually just uses his powerful imagination to imagine sending Penn a negative scanner, so we can instead spend two hours listening to Patton Oswalt work at eHarmony customer service. »
