Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours” posts longer trailer


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We’re seeing a number of films this year that deal with the various ways our technologically advanced society is connected and, more important, disconnected.

“The Social Network” explores how social media links strangers, for better and for worse. Clint Eastwood’s “Hereafter” connects individuals through the pull of the afterlife. Even Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” invents it’s own unique way to weave our imaginations together using dream-invasive technology that doesn’t yet exist. (Or does it?)

Yet out of all of those films, it was Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours” that filled me with an empowering sensation of compassion and communal spirit … strange for a film largely centered around a guy who spends the bulk of the film by himself.

To reveal more would be to spoil, but know that “127 Hours” is an unforgettable film, one of the year’s best, and it should be at the top of your “To See” list once it opens on Nov. 5.

Fox Searchlight released a full trailer or Boyle’s film, and while it tips its hand to a few of the movie’s secrets, it also hints at James Franco’s mesmerizing performance, as well as the energy and creativity Boyle infuses into every scene. Check out the long trailer here. And see the film next month. You won’t regret it, or soon forget it.
