As mentioned in a previous post, 20th Century Fox held its presentation of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty yesterday as a part of the 2013 CinemaCon. Not only was director, producer and star Ben Stiller there, but Kristen Wiig as well! The duo talked about the movie and shared 13 minutes of footage from the film. After the presentation Twitter blew up with buzz about a potential awards contender in Walter Mitty! If you follow us (to get all the latest news first!) you’ve already seen some of the quotes, if not I have featured some of them here as well. Also, in case you’re interested, you can read a description (not very spoiler-y) of the footage shown at CinemaBlend.com. Kristen’s character is named Cheryl, just as we predicted back in May last year. 49 pictures from the event have been added to our photo gallery!
