Sony has released the first trailer for The Walk and it is simply stunning. Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future, Flight) directs Joseph Gordon Levitt in the true story of Philippe Petit.
Who is Petit, you ask? Why, he’s the guy who crossed the Twin Towers in New York City in 1974 on nothing but a tightrope. And he captured the imagination of the world in the process.
Yes, the journey across two of the tallest buildings in the world was illegal, but by traversing the World Trade Center in Manhattan, he inspired many to reach for the stars and pursue their dreams, regardless of the obstacles.
What’s also so compelling about The Walk is Zemeckis shot it in IMAX and in 3D and it’s coming to theaters on October 2, 2015 in dizzying IMAX and IMAX 3D.
The film also stars James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Charlotte Le Bon (The Hundred-Foot Journey) and Ben Kingsley.
