Trailer for 127 Hours, the Aron Ralston Story, Hits The Web

The trailer for 127 Hours was released yesterday, giving us a glimpse of the film that will tell us the story of what it was like for Aron Ralston, the hiker who had his armed trapped beneath a boulder while hiking in the backcountry of Utah back in 2003.  Eventually he was forced to amputate it himself, which saved his life and vaulted him to the public spotlight. 

The film stars James Franco as Ralston and is directed by Academy Award Winner Danny Boyle, the director who brought us Slumdog Millionaire. The trailer looks beautiful and it serves it’s purpose to tease us for more. It certainly isn’t what I expected, but in a good way. What are your thoughts?

  1. At first I thought, how could they make an entire movie about this one incident? But the trailer looks cool, excellent scenery at the very least. Thanks.

  2. Agree with both of you. Like I said, it wasn't what I was expecting, but in a good, and surprising way. Looks very well done.

  3. Looks interesting. I hope the interpretation of the book (and his Character) will be portrayed in a good way.

  4. I liked The VIDEO for The ‘127 Hours’ Trailer, it was really good, can’t wait to see it after it comes out on November 5th!

  5. Not what I expected, but can't wait to see it. Will have to chase up the book that Martin mentioned too.

  6. It looks great in the short glimpse based on the videography. I am sure it will surpass my expectations that I had about the movie about that guy who lived in a bus in Alaska!

  7. Short clip, would like to see little more. but even though I will head out to watch it! Love movies based on real life adventures. the best one so far for me was Touching the Void.

  8. You're right MO, Touching the Void is awesome. We watched it on DVD in a Nepali Teahouse while trekking in the Himalaya earlier this year. Quite the setting to enjoy that film. 🙂

  9. I've read the book and I will see this movie at some point. It's and amazing story and Aron is definitely a "hard man". I'm glad he has been successful with his public speaking skills.
