NEW YORK (WTVM/CNN) – A movie with dizzying special effects is promising to put viewers in the shoes of a famous high-wire walker.
"The Walk" tells the story of Philippe Petit, known as the "Man on Wire", who snuck atop the World Trade Center in 1974 and walked back and forth between the towers 8 times.
Some say the movie is doing more than entertaining audiences. A few movie-goers reported getting physically sick with vertigo from watching the special effects.
"The Walk" starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt will hit theaters October 8.
