Joseph Gordon-Levitt Walks 'The Walk' On Top Of The World Trade Center: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-12-10 at 5.24.51 PM

A vertiginous teaser trailer is out today for The Walk, a new feature starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the French tightrope walker who made history on a high-wire strung across the World Trade Center in 1974. The CGI-heavy trailer features a swooping ride up the side of the South Tower to the roof where Levitt makes his first daring step onto the ledge of the building while taking in the commanding (not to mention heart-stopping) view of '70s-era New York.

The highly-anticipated film is directed by Robert Zemeckis (Flight, Cast AwayBack to the Future) and adapted from the Oscar-winning 2008 documentary Man On Wire, which told the true story of how acrobat Phillipe Petit, along with a band of clever accomplices, managed to rig a tightrope and take a walk between the Twin Towers. It was a feat that stopped traffic in New York, made worldwide news and served to humanize the monoliths that had risen over lower Manhattan. 

Zemeckis, a director known for his tech-savvy, shot the film using a state-of-the-art 6K Red Epic digital camera in Montreal over the summer. The film will be released in 3D and Imax 3D in October, 2015. You can watch the tense teaser, AFTER THE JUMP...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a pioneer in the brave new wave of crowd-sourced entertainment.

OnelivingGordon-Levitt writes:

Everything you're gonna see on this show was made collaboratively on our site -- hitRECord.org -- and the work of 426 Contributing Artists is featured in this particular episode. There's gonna be 8 episodes this season, each revolving around a different theme, like RE: Space, RE: The Other Side, and RE: Money. And since this is our first ever episode, I figured the theme of this one would be RE: The Number One. HITRECORD ON TV will be coming out on January 18th on a new cable channel called Pivot.

I'm deeply proud of this show, and I think you're realllllly gonna like it. Honestly, making this thing together with all the artists from around the world in our hitRECord community has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of my life so far. So, without any further ado, enjoy the show!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Still Won't Give the Paparazzi a Victory by Clarifying Rumors About His Sexuality

Levitt

Joseph Gordon-Levitt covers OUT magazine, and still won't refute rumors that he is gay by clarifying them:

“That would be really tacky—they would win if I had to clarify."

The 'they' he is referring to are these guys, the paparazzi, and the subject of a 2007 film he made of them.

OUT says its all part of Gordon-Levitt's persona, one steeped in self-preservation:

“It comes from a really young age,” he concedes. “It can be really awkward and difficult to be thought of as this thing on TV. Before understanding it or being able to analyze it, I just knew it made me really anxious.” Regularly recognized in his teens as “that kid from 3rd Rock From the Sun,” his reflexive response was denial. “I wouldn’t just say ‘No,’ ” he recalls. “I was way more convincing than that. I would first act confused, and then I would try to understand what they were saying. I would play the part.”

Gordon-Levitt also talks about his new film in which he plays a porn addict:

“I wasn’t interested in making a movie about pornography. I was interested in making a movie about how people treat each other like things, and all kinds of media can contribute to that. I’ve been working as an actor since I was a little kid, and I’ve always been fascinated, and a little horrified, by the way people relate to images they see on screen. Sometimes I feel I am seen as a thing more than a person, and I don’t think that’s unique to actors. I think everyone is subject to that kind of pigeonholing.”
