Fresh from success at the Academy Awards with Slumdog Millionaire, director Danny Boyle is back. His new movie, titled 127 Hours, is a drama based on the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston.
James Franco stars as Ralston, an adventurer high on life who finds himself trapped beneath bone crushing rock for days. With no hope of help he must find a way free even if that means sacrificing part of himself.
Today we get our first look at the movie with the trailer that just debuted on Apple.com. The first thing that strikes you is the stunning cinematography, bright and vibrant yellows and oranges which really make the desert feel like another world. Hopefully the rest of the movie can live up to the image.
The movie is out in America November 5th, so expect a late 2010/early 2011 release.
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.?
