TIFF 2010: Trailer for Danny Boyle's 127 HOURS
Danny Boyle continues to 'genre hop' with his follow up to Academy Award winning Slumdog Millionaire. Here he has a near one-man show with James Franco, who plays Aron Ralston, adventurer-climber who was faced with any mountaineers worst nightmare: Stuck alone, pinned under rocks, contemplating self-dismemberment. The trailer belies the nature of the story (which is based on true events of 2003), delivered with Boyle's usual kinetic flair and snappy musical counterpart. One of the better trailers to come along in some time, particularly for films of this genre, if you think this is going to be Touching The Void or even Gerry, well, the marketing is telling you something else.
