The Walk Synopsis
Twelve people have walked on the moon, but only one man - Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) - has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. Robert Zemeckis, the director of such marvels as Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future, Polar Express and Flight, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. With innovative photo realistic techniques and IMAX 3D ģ wizardry, The Walk is true big-screen cinema, a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds. The film is a love letter to Paris and New York City in the 1970s, but most of all, to the Towers of the World Trade Center.

Back To The Future wouldn't even hit cinemas if Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale wrote it today, insists Robert Zemeckis himself, who sounds a little downtrodden about the current state of mainstream cinema.

Weekend Box Office: Pan Fails To Fly As The Martian Makes Second Orbit At Number One Weekend Box Office: Pan Fails To Fly As The Martian Makes Second Orbit At Number One
Bad form, Peter! Audiences had little to no interest in newcomer fantasy Pan which opened this weekend to lackluster reviews and a wince-worthy box office turn out. That left last weekend's top earner The Martian holding a tight orbit around the number one spot for a second time around.

Why Joseph Gordon-Levitt Was Robert Zemeckis' Only Choice For The Walk Why Joseph Gordon-Levitt Was Robert Zemeckis' Only Choice For The Walk
Joseph Gordon-Levitt being cast by director Robert Zemeckis to star in the new true story thriller The Walk may be seen as somewhat controversial. After all, there are a number of French actors who could have been hired to play legendary French acrobat Philippe Petit in the film, but the director ultimately saw it fit to cast an American in the role.

How The Walk Virtual Reality Brings One Of The Year's Most Exciting Scenes To Life How The Walk Virtual Reality Brings One Of The Year's Most Exciting Scenes To Life
In 1974, Philippe Petit did something truly astonishing, and practically superhuman. He strung a high wire between the Twin Towers, and had the courage to actually walk across it from end to end. Itís a feat that few people who have ever lived would have had the bravery to do, and I know for a fact that Iím not one of those people.
