Joseph Gordon-Levitt Performs a High-Wire Act in 'The Walk' Trailer

Sony Pictures has released the first full-length trailer for "The Walk," starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as French high-wire artist Philippe Petit.

Directed by Robert Zemeckis, the 3D film tells the the story of a young dreamer who in 1974 dared the impossible: an illegal wire walk between the Twin Towers of the newly opened World Trade Center. As you can see from the trailer, there's a heist element to "The Walk," which follows Petit and his crew as they overcome obstacles, betrayals and close calls to execute their plan.

Opening Oct. 2, 2015, "The Walk" also stars Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon and James Badge Dale.
