This week in new streaming video, we’ve got a Kevin Hart-Ice Cube comedy, an imaginative short story adaptation by Ben Stiller, one of Matthew McConaughey’s acclaimed films from last year, and a bunch of new additions to Netflix. Read on for the full list:

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

He escapes into a globe-spanning fantasyland of his own creation — which might be just the thing that snaps him out of his rut.
