Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours” unleashes kinetic new trailer
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: As we inch closer to this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, we’re digging up more information on the films that will hold world premieres north of the border.
On the heels of our recent preview for Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours” – which is on our schedule in permanent ink – Fox Searchlight reveals a full trailer, giving us our first complete look at James Franco in action. View the clip below.
In the film, Franco plays Aron Ralston, an American mountain climber who, in 2003, was forced to amputate his right arm when it became trapped beneath a boulder while he was climbing in Utah.
Truthfully, I was extremely curious to see how Boyle’s trademark style – which could be described as “kinetic” – would mesh with the story of an individual trapped on a mountain. But the clip explains, in part, how the creative director still finds ways to spice up his visuals and keep the action moving. Split screens. A tribal drum track. Franco’s natural charisma. It all adds up to make “127 Hours” one of our must-sees of TIFF and the fall movie season.
This trailer really has raised my hopes, as well as my expectations. “127 Hours” opens in theaters on Nov. 5.
