What you may need to know:

1. Unhinged French fella walks on a wire between the Twin Towers for an hour.

2. It’s a dramatisation of the true story of French acrobat Philippe Petit, subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Man on Wire (2008).

3. Spoilers! CBS news lets us know how it all ended.

4. Joseph Gordon Levitt may feel he struggled with that French accent but I can assure him he did.

5. Levitt was reminded of his  fame in 2013 by some paparazzi and he made a little movie about it.

6. Broadsheet Prognosis: You want Freedom Tower fries with that?

      +1 Exactly what I thought when I heard it was being made, what’s the point when the documentary covered it so well.

      Agree 100%. Why on earth did they bother when the documentary featuring the REAL PERSON already covered the story so brilliantly? Waste of time and money.

        It does seem a bit silly seeing as the documentary was so good. It’s Robert Zemeckis though, odds are this is an exercise in technology, in this case 3D.

          I came here to make the same point. I suppose the fact that we know the story is so good may make us want to see it dramatised. It should be better than most Hollywood movies, these days.

    “UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU’VE SEEN BEFORE”…… Unless you seen Man On Wire and the countless other video’s and interviews about this… Also Philippe Petit isn’t a likeable person i remember he came across as a eejit
