Film trailer: '127 Hours' starring James Franco
Saturday 09 October 2010
Following up a teaser in August, the first full-length trailer was released Thursday for
127 Hours starring James Franco and directed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle (
Trainspotting), considered in contention for an Oscar nomination.
The film is based on the true story of Aron Ralston, portrayed by Franco, the mountain climber who cut off his arm after a fallen boulder trapped him in an isolated canyon in Utah.
This footage reveals the storyline, showing Ralston videotaping himself during the infamous hike, his daredevil antics, and the five-day ordeal alone - the majority of the film. The last shot pulls out of the mountain crevasse, dramatically revealing the landscape environment.
The trailer offers a glimpse into the wrenching experience as well as amusing moments and the adventurer's courage and endurance.
