I’ve been battling the flu for the past two days, so this is another belated Trailer Tuesday post (I still haven’t missed one Trailer Tuesday and I won’t!), but I’ll be back to regular programming next week, I promise. The trailer I’m posting today is for Danny Boyle’s new movie, 127 Hours, starring James Franco, Kate Mara (schwing!), Amber Tamblyn and Lizzy Caplan.
127 Hours is the true story of Aron Ralston, a mountain climber, who amputated his own arm in 2003 when he was trapped for five days in a remote canyon in Southern Utah. Living in Utah, I remember this in the news – particularly Tom Brokaw interviewing Ralston – and always thought it would make a good made-for-TV movie. Apparently Danny Boyle, who won a best director Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire in 2009, is taking it a step farther.
While I’m not a fan of Slumdog or Franco, I did love Boyle’s Sunshine and Aron Ralston’s story intrigues me. I will definitely catch this movie in theaters. Check out the trailer and let me know your thoughts. Yay or nay?
