Joseph Gordon-Levitt Stars in Vertigo-Inducing First Trailer For 'The Walk'

Sony Pictures has debuted the teaser trailer for Robert Zemeckis' The Walk, the story of French high-wire artist Philippe Petit's unauthorized 1974 walk between the Twin Towers of the newly opened World Trade Center.

The Walk is the true story of a young dreamer, Philippe Petit, and a band of unlikely recruits who together achieve the impossible: an illegal wire walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. 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.

Opening Oct. 2, 2015, The Walk stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon and James Badge Dale.
