First trailer for The Walk starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt


Films based on a true stories are always hit or miss, but I’m holding out some hope for Robert Zemeckis’ latest project The Walk, based on Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) tightrope walk between the World Trade Center’s two towers in 1979. 

The teaser trailer itself is a bit futzy (as it’s laying it on a bit thick), but I’m buying what this is selling. But the film doesn’t come out until a year from now, so there’s plenty of time for that to change. The Walk releases October 2, 2015.
