Must Watch: First Funky Trailer for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours
Are you ready? Apple has debuted the first official trailer for Danny Boyle's highly anticipated follow-up to Slumdog Millionaire - 127 Hours starring James Franco as real-life mountain climber Aron Ralston. I love the way this is setup, Boyle's films are always so fresh and unique, but this is also quite trippy. I'm also not sure about all the over-the-top adventuring he does with Kate Mara and Amber Tamblyn, that looks a bit too much like Franco takes some Hollywood hotties on a hiking trip. But I guess it is good characterization, setting him up to change. If you can't figure it out, Franco gets pinned there for 127 hours. I hope it delivers!

127 Hours is directed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle, of Trainspotting, The Beach, 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Slumdog Millionaire previously. "We want it to be a challenge for you guys as well... to see if you can watch it," Boyle said. In the first look post, Boyle said "you will want him to cut off his arm by the end." As well as Franco, the cast includes Lizzy Caplan, Kate Mara, Amber Tamblyn and the lovely Clémence Poésy. It also had two cinematographers, Anthony Dod Mantle and Enrique Chediak, who follow Franco through POV dialogue in some scenes. Fox Searchlight scheduled 127 Hours for limited release starting November 5th.
