Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays French high-wire artist Philippe Petit in The Walk, which follows the lead-up to the daredevil's walk between the now-destroyed Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974 New York.

Joseph adopts a French accent – the first time we've seen him do so for a film – and is constantly and ironically on edge throughout the trailer, as he plans to go against the law and walk a steel rope between the 110-storey building.

The Walk, directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, The Polar Express, A Christmas Carol), opens in cinemas on 19 November 2015.
