Help Me - Ed Araqel

I’ve seen Hector and the Search for Happiness three times and a bit – only the first two were versions of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (Danny Kaye, 1947 and Ben Stiller, 2013) and the bit was parts of a TV series called My World and Welcome To It, all of which were based on the writing s of James Thurber.

It’s always fun when a movie title describes precisely what’s in the box. Hector and the Search for Happiness. Seriously, what more do you need to know? Other than that it’s one of the films making its North American Premiere at the Toronto Film Festival – and that it stars Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgård and Jean Reno.

There are two trailers for Hector after the jump. One is apparently the regular theatrical trailer (which I like, a lot) and the other is for TIFF (which I also like, but a little less). Feel free to check them both out and let us know which makes you happier.
