'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' Trailer: Ben Stiller Oscar Bait?

The holidays have come a bit early today. While "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" isn't due in theaters until Christmas, Fox has debuted the first trailer for Ben Stiller's latest directorial effort online at Apple Trailers.

What better way to chase an Oscar than to remake a '47 classic which itself was based on a short-story by James Thurber?

Stiller plays the title character, whose daydream world is filled with fantastical adventures that override the ho-hum banality of his everyday world. A real-life crisis involving Mitty and a coworker (played by Kristen Wiig), though, puts Walter in the position of taking some some real-world adventures instead. Get More »

Melissa McCarthy went from pooping in a sink in "Bridesmaids" to the Hollywood A-List, co-starring in 2013's first big hit, "Identity Thief." And she owes it all to Matt Damon... Sorta.

Director Paul Feig has revealed the genesis for that bodily-fluids-filled moment.

Kristen Wiig Has a Wiig-ish Meltdown in 'Girl Most Likely' Trailer

Okay, now that we've (reluctantly) accepted the fact that Annette Bening is old enough to have a daughter as old as Kristen Wiig, we can attend to the task at hand.

One of SNL's all-time MVPs, Kristen Wiig has struggled to find life after "Bridesmaids," the runaway comedy hit that, believe it or not, is now two years old. Wiig seemed poised for Will Ferrell-sized superstardom after that flick made a bajillion bucks, but oddly enough she's been unable to find the proper follow-up (which is no small task, mind you -- "Bridemaids" is a truly brilliant piece of work).
