Exclusive teaser debut for 'The Walk': Joseph Gordon-Levitt stands atop the twin towers

That crosshatch construction is familiar, though we haven’t seen it for a long time. And when we do see it, we tend to picture it in smoldering ruins—not gleaming, strong, and new.

Then there’s the young man standing atop those 110 stories, stepping to the edge, balancing precariously on an I-beam that juts out into the void.

This is the first glimpse we’ve seen of The Walk—a new drama from director Robert Zemeckis, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt—and it might be easy to misconstrue the plot from these few brief moments. The movie tells a true story, but it’s not about 9/11. It takes place nearly three decades before, when the Twin Towers were newborns. And the man Gordon-Levitt plays isn’t contemplating suicide. He’s actually hoping to grasp a bit of immortality. READ FULL STORY

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is one of a few new additions to the Sin City universe in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s long-in-the-works sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. And since it’s a universe that’s particularly affected by the forces of entropic decay, his character doesn’t exactly get off easy.

He plays Johnny, a gambler whose good fortune takes a turn for the worse after he beats the wrong guy at the table. Check out Gordon-Levitt in this exclusive poster for the film, one of six, looking all badass and photo-negative.

The sinners are back and out for revenge in the first teaser trailer for Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

The moody trailer features the original’s signature dry, dark humor, Jessica Alba’s Nancy Callahan slamming her forehead into a mirror, Josh Brolin’s Dwight McCarthy tearing down the road, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s hard-luck gambler Johnny bloodied and screaming, and Eva Green’s Ava Lord shooting without pause — all framed by Mickey Rourke’s Marv growling “It’s just another Saturday night” (also the title of one of the tales). For fans of the first film, the teaser is a treasure trove of clues for Miller’s four vignettes — two of which are completely new stories.

Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt sin again in 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' -- EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK

Legendary graphic novelist Frank Miller’s super-stylized gang of strippers and scoundrels is back on the big screen for four tales of pulpy intrigue in the 3-D neo-noir sequel Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (out Aug. 22).

Jessica Alba’s Nancy Callahan is still dancing at Kadie’s, but she’s changed since John Hartigan’s (Bruce Willis) death in the original 2005 cult classic. “She’s out for revenge,” says Miller, who co-directed the film. “She is sick of being treated — as she puts it — ‘as a piece of ass.'” Robert Rodriguez, who also returns to co-helm the project, adds: “You see a little girl in that first film. By the end of this, she’s the avenging angel.” Alba’s acting work has taken a backseat to other endeavors in the past few years, but Miller assures us that she is “eight times the actor [that she was] when I did the first film.”
