Joseph Gordon-Levitt meets a ledge in newly released clips from Robert Zemeckis’ “The Walk.”

In the high-wire drama, Levitt plays Philippe Petit, the French daredevil made famous for walking between the Twin Towers in 1974. The film is based on Petit’s memoir, “To Reach the Clouds,” which was also the basis of James Marsh’s acclaimed documentary “Man on Wire.” 

Zemeckis’ 3D spin on the stunt, which is opening the New York Film Festival this Saturday, September 26, also stars Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Steve Valentine, Charlotte Le Bon, Clement Sibony, Caesar Domboy and Benedict Samuel. 

“The Walk” hits IMAX theaters on September 30 and opens nationwide on October 9. Watch five clips from the film in the video above.
