Watch the new trailer for The Walk

Posted on

The Walk will hit IMAX screens on Sept. 30 — more than a week before its wide release on Oct. 9 — and Sony has shared a new IMAX trailer for the film. The clip shows Philippe Petit, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, as he plots his historic high-wire stunt between New York’s Twin Towers.

Petit’s daring 1974 feat was chronicled in his 2002 memoir To Reach the Clouds and in the 2008 Oscar-winning documentary Man On Wire. Robert Zemeckis directed this new adaptation, which also stars Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, and Steve Valentine. The Walk will have its world premiere at the New York Film Festival on Sept. 26.
