The first trailer for 127 Hours was pretty upbeat considering the subject matter, but now Fox Searchlight has released a second, more emotional trailer for Danny Boyle’s first movie since Slumdog Millionaire cleaned house at last year’s Oscars.
We get to see more of James Franco’s portrayal of Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who amputated his own arm to free himself after being trapped by a boulder for nearly five days. The actor has already been getting awards buzz, and the movie has been getting positive reviews from screenings at various festivals.
Watch the trailer below:
The script was written by Simon Beaufoy, who won an Oscar for his Slumdog Millionaire screenplay, and Fox Searchlight plan to release 127 Hours on November 5th in the US and January 7th in the UK.
