I’m actually not going to watch this newly-released near-five minute IMAX trailer for Robert Zemeckis‘ The Walk, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Why you ask?
Because I actually want to see the film, on a proper IMAX screen none-the-less and I don’t really need anymore of it spoiled past the somewhat boring trailers.
I have no doubts that Zemeckis will be able to deliver a dazzling visual treat, but can he land the drama and make it stick?
He did it with Flight and I hope he can do it again, otherwise JGL is going to be looking like an idiot come Oscar season, or not because he’s JGL and that generally means that he can get away with a weird French accent and climbing across large buildings.
