Robert Zemeckis directs and co-writes this biopic about French high-wire artist Philippe Petit.
On the morning of 7th August 1974, Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) began a walk 1,350 feet above the ground between the Twin Towers in New York City.
Using just a balancing pole to keep him upright, Petit attempted to make a journey that no man had ever made before, with hundreds of onlookers gazing up from below.
The cast also includes Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon and James Badge Dale.
