With the impending release of “The Walk” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt in cinemas on the 2nd of October a whole host of featurettes have been released.
The Walk is the true story of a young dreamer, Philippe Petit, and a band of unlikely recruits who together achieve the impossible: an illegal wire walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.
