THE WALK – TRAILER

Ask me to walk across to the room to get you something and I’m hesitant.

I’m not afraid of heights but I’m all kinds of f’ that while watching this trailer. Robert Zemeckis has the sheer terror of that height down pat. it also makes it interesting to this since the real building is no more that it all has to be CGI, or built set tops. A very interesting look in to the back story of one of the greatest stunts ever performed.

Official Synopsis:

Twelve people have walked on the moon.  Only one has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.
Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), is aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, who overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan.  Robert Zemeckis, the master director of such marvels as Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future, Polar Express and Flight, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story.  With innovative photorealistic techniques and IMAX® 3D wizardry, The Walk is genuine big-screen cinema, a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds. 

 

THE WALK opens October 1 in Australia
