TEFB TRAILERS: 127 HOURS
127 Hours, his new film, tells the true story of Aaron Ralston - daredevil and adventurer extraordinaire. In 2003, Aaron's arm became trapped under a boulder, and he spent five days severing his arm in order to escape. A teaser for the film was released back in August. Now, Apple Trailers has the full-length trailer.
James Franco plays Ralston, and the trailer really puts emphasis on his performance - and I'm not talking just with quotes like "one of the all-time great performances." Franco's long been a great actor, and it's great to see him headlining this film that seems to be, for the most part, a one man show.
Boyle has traversed man vs. wild before, with his 2000 film The Beach. He's also a master of making beautifully hopeful films out of characters in hopeless situations (28 Days Later, Sunshine, Slumdog Millionaire).
