There’s nothing like some death-defying tightrope walking to jolt you into the rest of the week. Robert Zemeckis, who directed cult classics ‘Cast Away’ and ‘Forrest Gump’, returns this year with ‘The Walk’.
‘The Walk’ stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Philippe Petit, a high-wire artist who in 1974 walked a tightrope between New York’s Twin Towers. The film, which also features Charlotte Le Bon and Ben Kingsley, follows Petit’s process of completing the stunt and the struggles associated.
Check out the extended 5-minute trailer above. Not recommended for those with a fear of heights.
‘The Walk’ will be in cinemas September 30 in IMAX 3D.
