Joseph Gordon-Levitt Stars in Robert Zemeckis' 'The Walk' Trailer #2
"People ask me: why do you risk death? For me, this is life." Sony Pictures has revealed the "global trailer" for Robert Zemeckis' The Walk, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Philippe Petit, the man who strung a tight rope between the Two Towers and walked across it. If you've seen James Marsh's Man on Wire then you know the story already, but they expand upon it so much more here, giving us an extensive look at Petit and his trip to America and dream to do the impossible. Charlotte Le Bon (seen in The Hundred-Foot Journey) stars as his girlfriend, and the cast includes Ben Kingsley and James Badge Dale. This looks amazing, seriously, some of the shots in this and the way it floats around him, all his emotions, I'm so in.
Here's the second official trailer for Robert Zemeckis' The Walk, direct from Sony Pictures:
Guided by his mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan to walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Charlotte Le Bon, Clément Sibony and César Domboy also star in The Walk, directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Cast Away, Forrest Gump), and shot using innovative photorealistic techniques and IMAX 3D wizardry. The film arrives October 2nd, 2015. The film will premiere at the New York Film Festival this fall as the Opening Night selection. See you there.
