Fox Searchlight Pictures has announced that director Danny Boyle's next film 127 Hours will be released on November 5. I'm really looking forward to this movie, because of how amazing and intense this story is. The movie is pretty much a one man show which stars James Franco.
127 Hours is the true 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 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.
Boyle is the fantastic director that brought us incredible films such as Sunshine and Slumdog Millionaire. I'm confident that this is going to be another solid Danny Boyle film.
