After hauling in the awards with Slumdog Millionaire, Danny Boyle has moved his story far far away from India this time. Instead of slums, horror or heroin addicts, Boyle has taken on the true story of mountain climber Aaron Ralston in 127 Hours.
Starring James Fraco in the lead, ‘127 Hours’ is the real-life story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the ability to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued.
The film also stars Clemence Poesy, Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara.
The first look of the ‘127 Hours’ has garnered quite an interest in Danny Boyle’s new project. James Franco is almost unrecognizable (yet delectable!) in the ruffled hair and shaggy T-shirt; quite different from the chic Harry Osborn in Spider-Man. We can’t wait for this one to hit the screens!
