Today we have a teaser trailer for the upcoming "The Walk," which is directed by Robert Zemeckis (Flight, Forrest Gump, Cast Away) and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Check out the trailer below, in addition to a poster.
The new movie tells the story of French high-wire artist Philippe Petit's walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on August 7th, 1974. The dangerous walk, called the "artistic crime of the century," was explored in the award-winning "Man on Wire" documentary.
Much of the movie will be about how Petit managed with a small group of relatives and his girlfriend to carefully plan the walk, sneaking up to the top of the Towers at night. They hid until late evening when they strung a 450-pound cable from one building to the other. Petit then stepped off the South Tower for a 45-minute walk to the North Tower. The majority of the film plays like "Ocean's Eleven," while the third act will be all about using the latest technology to re-creating the actual walk.
"The Walk" is set to hit conventional, 3D and IMAX 3D theaters on October 2nd, 2015.

More Zemeckis crap. Flight was bearable at best. Dude hasn't had a good movie in a very long time.

Well, Alex, you have two days of updates with which to play, so get busy, dude.

Anyway...film looks band imo. Not bad production values but...Zemeckis has lost his verve. Lost it a long time ago. A film about some people walking across the Twin Towers is hardly in the same league as, say, Castaway.
I miss the old Zemeckis, the one before he got old and started doing CGI sh*t and lamentably boring films about black, weepy alcoholic pilots.
"The majority of the film plays like "Ocean's Eleven,""
How is that even possible when the entirety of Ocean's 11 is a huge setup for the big final reveal?

Flight was a very good film and fink is a f*cking idiot.
This looks REALLY dull though.

Fink is indeed an idiot.
And flight was amazing!

Although I will agree, that was a poop trailer

"The dangerous walk, called the "artistic crime of the century," was explored in the award-winning "Man on Wire" doc*mentary."
Then why do we need this movie? The answer: we don't.

"Man on Wire is a superb doc*mentary with enough footage and a far better and more creative performer in Petit than Levitt. Watch C. Gordo fake it a foot off the ground as computer graphics take care of the rest."

Once again, Alex can't make the diference between a trailer and an obvious TEASER!
ps: It's sad to see that these twin towers aren't there anymore as they were one of the best creation in modern architecture: simple concept but imposingly majestic and beautiful. They should've rebuild them instead that...weird thing of a tower.
