Trailer Watch: 127 Hours

Danny Boyle has made a career out of directing films that are all very different from one another. From borderline Bollywood (Slumdog Millionaire) to family films (Millions) to hard science fiction (Sunshine) to his own unique take on the zombie genre (28 Days Later), he has made a career out of taking hard turns from one film to the next. Now he’s taking us into borderline first-person, based-on-a-true story survival with his next, 127 Hours.

127 Hours is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (Clemence Poesy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara) he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet? A visceral thrilling story that will take an audience on a never before experienced journey and prove what we can do when we choose life.

127 Hours stars James Franco and hits theaters November 5, 2010.
