Don’t look down! Don’t look down!
But also don’t look away from this trailer because it’s awesome!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt tries his hand at a French accent, starring as Philippe Petit in Sony‘s The Walk — a true story about the high-wire artist’s famous walk between the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center.
The flick also stars Sir Ben Kingsley as Philippe’s mentor, Papa Rudy, and features a trailer packed with passion, illegal schemes, and of course beautiful shots of TERRIFYING heights.
Who would have thought a movie about one walk across a high-wire would be so intriguing — especially because we know what happens, since this all went down back in 1974??
The film is directed by Oscar-winner Robert Zemeckis, who you may know from a couple small projects like Forrest Gump and Back to the Future, so it’s probably a safe bet to say The Walk is gonna soar to new heights!
Ch-ch-check out the full trailer (below)!
