the_walk_750Arriving in cinemas later this week The Walk stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Philippe Petit, the French high-wire artist who walked between the Twin Towers in 1974.

With little more than nerve and blind ambition, Petit and his ragtag crew overcome daunting physical obstacles, betrayals, countless close calls and overwhelming odds to beat the system and execute their mad plan.

The film is co-written by Christopher Browne and Back to the Future’s Robert Zemeckis who also directs and co-stars Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Steve Valentine and Charlotte Le Bon.

The Walk arrives in cinemas on October 2nd.
