Woman collapses during “127 Hours” Los Angeles premiere

Hollywoodnews.com: Here’s an original story.
Yet another person passed out during a screening of Danny Boyle’s “127 Hours,” this time during the film’s anticipated Los Angeles premiere on Wednesday night.
(Be sure to check out our video interview with Boyle and leading man James Franco here.)
According to reports, the woman passed out in her seat at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater, and those around her began asking for a doctor. Strangely enough, the woman’s attack didn’t occur during the movie’s infamous amputation scene, but happened well before that cut took place.
Boyle, who addressed the crowd after the movie, said that the woman attributed her reaction to an existing medical condition, and would be fine.
Why does this keep happening? This is not the first incident of an audience member conking out during “Hours.” It began at the Telluride film festival, continued through Toronto, and has plagued the film ever since.
I’m now beginning to think this is an elaborate PR stunt concocted by Fox Searchlight’s marketing department to generate further headlines. But maybe that’s just me being a conspiracy nut. Anyway, the film doesn’t need additional hype. It’s great. One of the year’s best. So long as you can stay conscious during the whole thing.
