127 Hours

Based on the response from the latest trailer we featured last week for Danny Boyle's 127 Hours, a lot of you are very excited for this film, as well you all should be since it's damn good. To fuel the hype even more, Fox Searchlight (one of my favorite indie studios) has launched a fantastic official website for the movie, which stars James Franco as real-life mountaineer Aron Ralston, who became trapped by a boulder while hiking in Utah in 2003. The design is wonderful, the music is great, this is one of those sites you just have to stop and check out. Though I think I'm tired of seeing that quote from ComingSoon's Ed Douglas (kidding).

127 Hours Website

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.
