Late Night Trailers: 127 Hours

Since Slumdog Millionaire, Danny Boyle's noteriety has shot into the big time.  For his first film post Oscars, he's opted to do 127 Hours, the true story of Aron Ralston, an outdoorsy type who amputated his own arm after being trapped beneath a boulder for the titular amount of time.  Starring James Franco as Ralston, rumor has it the film plays it minimal on the dialogue, with a supposedly silent hour long sequence.  It's rather a risky move for Boyle to take, and yet I can honestly say I'm less than thrilled about it.  Is it personal? Maybe.  I never liked these sorts of survivalist man-versus-nature stories.  I still think Chris McCandless was an idiot.  By the looks of it: Ralston is a fool as well.  Pack some gear, dude.  Pack some gear.
