The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (Giveaway)

In The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Ben Stiller plays a timid magazine photo manager, who lives life vicariously through daydreams. Now he must embark on an incredible real-life adventure when a priceless negative goes missing. One of the places that his adventure takes him is the beautiful Nordic country of Iceland.

In honor of the film’s Blu-ray and DVD release on April 15th, we’re bringing you a few facts about the country that you may have never heard along with a giveaway for one of you Just Us Girls readers. 

1. Icelandic language has been relatively unchanged for the last 1000 years.
Modern inhabitants of Iceland speak a language almost identical to that spoken by the country’s original Viking settlers in the 9th and 10th centuries.

2. There are 130 volcanic mountains in the roughly 40,000 square miles that make up Iceland.
18 of them have erupted in the last 1000 years, and the largest one covers nearly 8% of the country’s surface.

3. Reykjavik is the world’s northernmost capital city.
Iceland is so far north of the equator that the country experiences nearly continuous daylight during the summer months of June and July.1

4. Icelanders love movies.
They watch more films, per capita, than the people of any other country in the world.

5. Iceland is one of the most energy-efficient countries in the world.
70% of the energy used by Icelanders is produced by the country’s natural geothermal and hydroelectric resources.
