EXCLUSIVE: Ben Stiller, Adam Scott Get Animated in THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY
By Alicia Lutes on April 10, 2014
If you saw Ben Stiller’s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty last year, the exciting visuality at the core of the film’s storytelling was no doubt a highpoint. And likely, too, is your appreciation of the fight between Stiller’s Walter and Adam Scott’s smarmy Ted. Now, thanks to this exclusive clip from the film to celebrate its DVD/Blu-Ray release, you can see how the Stretch Armstrong-fueled battle actually came to be.
In order to fully bring Stiller’s directorial take on the James Thurber story to life, the team behind the daydreamy special effects used a computerized template to fully visualize Walter’s world. And thanks to those kind folks, we now have a glimpse at what an early version of that fight looked like. For cinephiles and technical geeks alike, it’s a fun behind-the-scenes glimpse at what it takes to create a world as wily and wonderful as The Secret Life of Walter Mitty‘s. For the rest of us it’s fun to see what a computerized take on Stiller and Scott looks like. Either way, consider your daydreams terribly insufficient.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty comes to DVD/Blu-Ray on April 15th. What’d you think of the clip? Let us know in the comments.
