The Walk Extended IMAX Trailer

"No matter where I was going, or what I was doing, I was always searching for the perfect place to hang my wire." Sony has debuted one last extended nearly 5-minute long IMAX trailer for Robert Zemeckis' The Walk, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Philippe Petit. It takes palce in the 1970s, when Petit came to New York and strung a tight rope between the original two World Trade Towers. This shows how much the story involves many other people who helped him along the way, like his mentor played by Ben Kingsley, and his girlfriend, played by Charlotte Le Bon. The cast also includes James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz & Steve Valentine. I think it looks really good, I'm still looking forward to seeing this - hitting theaters soon.

Here's the new extended IMAX trailer for Robert Zemeckis' The Walk, direct from Sony Picture's YouTube:

You can still watch the first official trailer and second trailer here for Robert Zemeckis' The Walk for comparison.

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.

I hope Zemeckis really used the iMax to its full potential here. He could create some really vertiginous shots of the towers if done right.

Did you watch the trailer? OBVIOUSLY he did.

He said full potential. Hard to tell that from a 2 min trailer.

Try the 5 min trailer and see if it's still hard to tell. Of course if you watch that on an iphone screen not even a 20 min trailer will be able to convince you of 'its full potential'.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Sep 22, 2015


Sascha - sarcasm? It's hard to get an idea of the "full potential" when I"m watching the trailer on the 5 inch screen of my phone. Let me rephrase: I hope that when I'm sitting the movie theater watching this movie, I feel a bit of vertigo and acrophobia....

Sorry didn't detect any sarcasm...

Sascha Dikiciyan on Sep 22, 2015


I wasn't trying to be sarcastic in my original comment....I was asking you if you were being sarcastic in your reply..... Someone needs to come up with a "sarcasm font"

this looks good, but everyone interested in this really should watch "Man on Wire", a fantastic documentary

kitano0 on Sep 21, 2015


the documentary is *so* good, featuring a cinematic and engaging narrative a lead character who is no saint and a fine 'supporting cast', that despite Zemeckis' film featuring many of my faves, i'm struggling to build enough interest to see it's poor, fictionalised cousin in cinemas. sure it'll be quite an experience viewing in IMAX, though.

Have you seen it? Then don't call it "poor, fictionalised cousin " when you have nothing to back it up with

fair point, didn't explain myself properly. i just meant that this is case of truth being stranger than fiction, and i often find dramatisations of such extraordinary true stories less engaging. but as i said, the cast is good and it could be quite a spectacle.

son_et_lumiere on Sep 22, 2015


You forgot... it's IMAX 3D. Not just IMAX. It will be an experience.

Did JGL forget to wash off the Bruce Willis makeup from Looper?

No. You need to some new glasses.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Sep 21, 2015


Geez, things are a little uptight around here lately...

cuckoozey on Sep 22, 2015


It is pretty crazy to think that these average joes were able to pull this off. I really want this to be good, so Big Z can have a win on his latter-day track record.

No offence to JG Levitt, an awesome actor imo, nor to R Zemeckis, but why Hiring an american actor to play a french guy ? despite the fact that his french is really good, his accent is makes it so cliché... still looks good though...

Fabrice Pestel on Sep 22, 2015


Very strange idea for movie. What I am always really confused about is time, the historic moment. Why make such a story in a time that happened decades ago? In this moment, there are such stories around. Nothing special in it unless you want to pull some story which would be, nowadays, impossible ...
