Those who have seen the critically praised documentary Man on Wire will already be familiar with Philippe Petit's story. Now, acclaimed director Robert Zemeckis has set out to retell this tale of a man who, on August 7, 1974, attempted an astounding high-wire walk between the two World Trade Center towers. Sony's TriStar Pictures will release The Walk in 3D and IMAX 3D theaters on October 2. But first, we get a cool new poster, which shows star Joseph Gordon-Levitt defying death with this intense stunt.
The Walk is the true story of a young dreamer, Philippe Petit, and a band of unlikely recruits who together achieve the impossible...They pull off an illegal wire walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. With little more than nerve and blind ambition, Petit and his ragtag crew overcome daunting physical obstacles, betrayals, countless close calls and overwhelming odds to beat »
Today we have a new poster for the upcoming "The Walk" film, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and directed by Robert Zemeckis (Flight, Forrest Gump, Cast Away). Check it out below. The new movie tells the story of French high-wire artist Philippe Petit's walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on August 7th, 1974. The dangerous walk, called the "artistic crime of the century," was explored in the award-winning "Man on Wire" documentary. Much of the movie will be about how Petit managed with a small group of relatives and his girlfriend to carefully plan the walk, sneaking up to the top of the Towers at night. They hid until late evening when they strung a 450-pound cable from one building to the other. Petit then stepped off the South Tower for a 45-minute walk to the North Tower. The majority of the film plays like "Ocean's Eleven, »
A new poster has arrived online for Robert Zemeckis’ The Walk, which is based on the true story of French high-wire artist Philippe Petit (played by Jospeh Gordon-Levitt) and his walk between the towers of The World Trade Centre in 1974.

Twelve people have walked on the moon, but only one man—Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt)—has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan. Robert Zemeckis, the director of such marvels as Forrest Gump and Back to the Future, again uses advanced technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. The Walk is true big-screen cinema, »

Long hair, don't care! Shailene Woodley was spotted on the set of the "Snowden" biopic in Honolulu, Hawaii on Thursday ... though we barely recognized her with all that hair. The actress didn't look like herself, sporting long brown hair extensions for her role as Edward Snowden's girlfriend, Lindsay Mills. The young star was dressed down for the scene, rocking long denim shorts, a black T-shirt, minimal makeup and no shoes. The Oliver Stone directed biopic -- which will follow the life of Snowden, a former CIA employee who leaked thousands of classified information to the press -- boasts a pretty impressive cast, too. Woodley stars alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Snowden), Nicolas Cage, Scott Eastwood, Zachary Quinto and Joely Richardson in the biographic thriller. While we think Woodley can rock any look, we've gotten used to her with slightly shorter tresses. What do you think about the 23-year-old's movie makeunder? Tell »

After proving himself highly capable of balancing comedy and drama in his Joseph Gordon-Levitt cancer pic 50/50, Jonathan Levine will be taking on another project that mines laughs from dark places. He’s attached to direct Miles Teller in Home Is Burning, an adaptation of the upcoming memoir by Dan Marshall.
Teller stars as the author, who returns home to help care for his ailing parents. The Whiplash actor will also produce.
Marshall is set to pen the script based on his own book, which arrives this October. Adaptation rights were highly sought after by multiple studios, but New Line evidently made the author a deal he couldn’t refuse.
Here’s the full synopsis for the book:
Dan’s mom has always had cancer. First diagnosed when he was only ten years old, she was the model of resilience throughout his childhood, fighting her disease with tenacity and a mouth »

It's not the only Henson-related project heading to the big screen either.
There's also the small matter of the Sesame Street film as well, that had been in the works at 20th Century Fox. As it turns out, the movie is still coming, but there's been a change or two.
Firstly, it's switched studios. Sesame Street is now a Warner Bros project, and it's said that it has "brought new ideas to the table regarding the direction of the film". The Tracking Board reports that the new film "will be in the style of the more recent Muppets films" as a result.

Actress Shailene Woodley took a few more steps toward owning the MTV demographic that Jennifer Lawrence and Kristen Stewart have had a stranglehold on the last few years Sunday by claiming a pair of awards at the top of the 2015 MTV Movie Awards: Best Actress for her work in "The Fault in Our Stars" and the Trailblazer Award for forging her own path in the industry. "I was here three years ago when Emma Stone won this award and I remember what she said," Woodley said from the Nokia Theatre stage in accepting the Trailblazer honor. "She came up here and defined what a trailblazer is…and in her speech she said we meet thousands of people we're inspired by but we'll never be anyone other than ourselves. In thinking about that I realized we can't truly be ourselves without a community to reflect back to ourselves who we are. »

This month Alan Rickman's A Little Chaos, Ryan Gosling's Lost River and Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner see these performers make the dizzying leap from actor to director. But in which of their colleagues' footsteps might they follow?
We take a look at six different categories of actor-turned-directors.
Too handsome to be a supporting actor, and lacking the gravitas of a major star, Ben Affleck looked to be heading towards Kilmer-ville before he released Gone Baby Gone, a dark Dennis Lehane thriller he co-wrote and directed, with brother Casey taking the lead. Follow-up The Town proved solid, but his next effort, Argo, was a surprise Best Picture winner. The fact Affleck didn't receive a Director nomination suggests he's not yet been forgiven for the likes of Gigli, but the forthcoming Lehane adaptation Live By Night should fix that.

This week took an adorable turn when Hilary Swank attended the Aspca's 18th Annual Bergh Ball in NYC. The actress got a cute, furry surprise on the red carpet for the event. Also in NYC, Cody Simpson and Gigi Hadid bundled up for an outing together, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kit Harington promoted the new season of Game of Thrones. In other fun moments from the week, Shailene Woodley and Joseph Gordon-Levitt filmed a new movie, Ryan Gosling stunned on the red carpet, and Ben Affleck had the perfect five o'clock shadow. Read on to see all that and more. »

Nerds serve an often vital role in cinema. In an action movie they’ll be the people a grizzled cop will go see to decode some information or the awkward best friend in a teen comedy. They can come in a few different varieties. In most cases, glasses are a must. They’ll often have a geeky t-shirt, showing off their favourite comic character or movie and probably have a few spots or zits if a filmmaker really wants to hammer home their nerdiness. Oh, and their hangout will have lots of posters on the wall, with maybe a few toys or empty pizza boxes thrown in for good measure.
And in most cases, they’re not the main character.
So when nerds are promoted to a leading role, this can be something of a casting problem. Studios don’t want to hire a geeky looking actor »

The crowning achievement of the MTV Movie Awards is Best Kiss. It's a necessary, telling category. Frankly, a kissing scene is often the most interesting part of a movie. (See: "Talladega Nights," "The Notebook," and "Cruel Intentions," which all won in this category.) How do this year's nominees hold up? We rank them from fifth to first. 5. Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson: "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" Get More: 2015 MTV Movie Awards, Latest Movie News So it's a cute moment. There's quippy dialogue. Evans is in his chill Eddie Bauer gear and Johansson is commanding and stony. But the idea of kissing in public as a masquerade is the stuff of ancient teen movies and, more recently, "Inception." We already had this nomination in 2011 with Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and that was both funnier and more intense. 4.

The long-gestating remake of the sci-fi classic "Logan's Run" has scored a new rumor today that suggests the script for the film has been refitted so that Logan is now a woman rather than a man.
Previous reports have suggested the new version will use low-tech science fiction in a futuristic setting and hew closer to the book than the 1976 movie. [Source: Tracking Board]
