We’re a couple of weeks away from taking a vertigo-inducing ride with director Robert Zemeckis and Joseph Gordon Levitt and their latest film, The Walk.

Telling the story, covered also by award-winning documentary Man on Wire, of Philippe Petit and his mentor Papa Rudy as they attempt the impossible – to walk on a high wire between the two World Trade Center towers.

The cast is completed with Charlotte Le Bon, Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Clément Sibony and César Domboy.

We’ve got our hands on a clip from the film, and it shows the intense preparation and frequent moments of awe that must be plentiful in Zemeckis’ film.

The Walk is out in the UK in selected cinemas October the 2nd and Nationwide October the 9th.
