The first trailer of Danny Boyle’s new film 127 Hours is out. Wondering why we are posting it here ? Two reasons. Well, if Vishwanathan Anand is not Indian, then Danny Boyle can be half-Indian. And it has music by A R Rahman. Check it out.

Wow! What energy. And the best part is that Boyle goes to other extreme after Slumdog Millionaire. From populist desi masala to a film revolving around just one character. The film is going to have its premiere at the Toronto International Film festival. And here is the official synopsis of the film….

127 HOURS is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s (James Franco) 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 wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (Clemence Poesy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara) he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet?

A visceral thrilling story that will take an audience on a never before experienced journey and prove what we can do when we choose life.

And if it sounds interesting, do check the two videos where Aron Ralston talks about it….

    Sounds great, and thankfully no Dev Patel this time :).

    BTW this looks more like a Rockies Version of Cast Away, should be worth a dekkho.

    There is a scene in the begining of There Will Be Blood, where Daniel Plainview falls into the well and a long shot view of the landscape outside tells us that any kind of civilization is miles away. I used to wonder about that scene many times. How can a man survive after such a freak accident. This looks like a movie which tells the story of that one scene. But Aron better be as good as Daniel Plainview.

    127 Hours looks good, and I know Danny Boyle can literally direct anything, but a story about a guy being trapped under a rock for more than 5 days, is kind of a stretch. Yet, Franco is a great actor, and can probably sell it.
