A brand new teaser trailer has just landed for Robert Zemeckis’ The Walk and it’s enough to give us vertigo.
If you’ve seen James Marsh’s astonishing documentary, Man on Wire, then the premise behind The Walk will be instantly recognizable to you. Based on the remarkable true story, the film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Philippe Petit, a French high wire artist who walked on a high wire between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974.
It’s a simple teaser but an effective one. The eye-popping 3D IMAX visuals are guaranteed to increase your fear of heights, while the sight of the towers speaks for itself. Anyone who’s seen Man on Wire will know what to expect here, and if you haven’t seen it, then I suggest you go away and check it out now.
As well as Joseph Gordon Levitt, the film also stars Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale and Charlotte Le Bon.
The film is set for release late next year.
