The Walk is based on the true story of high-wire artist Phillipe Petit, and his infamous walk between the World Trade Centre Towers. In the film, aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan.
Out on Monday 1st February, watch this exclusive early release clip from the special features on Blu-ray, about the metaphorical lessons that Joseph Gordon-Levitt learnt from Phillipe Petit himself.
Academy Award®-winning director Robert Zemeckis uses advanced technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. THE WALK is a love letter to Paris and New York City in the 1970s, but most of all, to the Towers of the World Trade Centre.
