Whoah! Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is Highwire Man In 'The Walk' Trailer
Hollywood star plays Frenchman who walked between NYC's twin towers...
Make sure you're sitting down before you watch this if you don't have the best head for heights.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as a daredevil highwire walker in the first trailer for The Walk - which tells the story behind Frenchman Philippe Petit's iconic walk between the twin towers of New York's World Trade Center.
The promo begins with a tracking shot up the side of one of the buildings - which were destroyed by terrorists in 2001 - before the camera finds JGL emerging onto the rooftop and walking to the edge.
He peers into the dizzying abyss between the buildings before inching out onto a protruding girder (viewers may want to hold onto the arm of their chair at this point).
The walk happened in 1974 and was the subject of acclaimed documentary Man On Wire in 2008.
The feature film is helmed by Back To The Future filmmaker Robert Zemeckis and also stars Sir Ben Kingsley.
