'The Walk' Teaser Trailer Released Online
The exhilarating first trailer of director Robert Zemeckis' new thriller “The Walk”, a true story based on French high-wire artist Philippe Petit's book "To Reach the Clouds", has just been released. “The Walk” stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the young dreamer who dared the impossible: an illegal wire walk between the World Trade Center towers. Last August 7, 2014 is the 40th anniversary of the astounding event, now being brought back to vivid life in the third act climax of the film.
Twelve people have walked on the moon, but only one man has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. Robert Zemeckis, the director of such marvels as “Forrest Gump,” “Cast Away,” “Back to The Future,” “The Polar Express” and “Flight,” again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. With innovative photo-realistic techniques and IMAX 3D wizardry, “The Walk” touts to be a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds.
