Joseph Gordon-Levitt braves a high-wire in 'The Walk'
It's an illegal daredevil stunt of the craziest kind
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.
