Are you acrophobic?

I think I am a little bit when it comes to very close encounters of heights. And I don't know if I can take the view when I see THE WALK especially when it is in 3D in cinemas starting October 14. I hope that you could also get the chance to see this film and bring the following reasons:
  1. It stars Joseph Gordon Levitt, he's played in Inception, 500 Days of Summer and this time, he played Philippe Petit who gets to cross New York's World Trade Center towers. But of course, it no longer exists that it leads us to #2.
  2. The World Trade Center is resurrected in this movie -- as a medium that allowed one to fulfill his mad dream. Based on actual blueprints of the WTC, the Twin Towers again will reconnect the whole world, not because of the tragic fate, but for quite a thrill.
  3. Speaking of Philippe Petit, some of us would not know that this will be based on actual events. We will revisit that great moment when he tried to cross via high-wire stunt, and how was that made possible. We'll get to know the character more and have a two perspective about him and the people around him.
  4. The high-wire walk is an exciting stunt in itself. It may be an old acrobat stint, but inserting a little bit of reality story makes it greater.
Those are just a few reasons why you have to spend a few bucks for great movie. Will serve you a review in a few days. But you can check the trailer below:
The film also stars Academy Award® winner Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Steve Valentine, Charlotte Le Bon, Clement Sibony, Caesar Domboy and Benedict Samuel. Directed by Zemeckis, the screenplay is by Robert Zemeckis & Christopher Browne, based on the book “To Reach the Clouds” by Philippe Petit, and produced by Steve Starkey, Robert Zemeckis, and Jack Rapke.
