That’s really all I can think of whenever I imagine the story of Aron Ralston, the canyon explorer who was forced to amputate his own arm when it became trapped under a boulder in 2003. I mean — fuck. The story was bound to become a movie, and Danny Boyle picked it up and ran with it. James Franco plays Alston, and while the trailer is a little too “extreme” for me at times, I loves me some Franco, and Boyle rarely steers us wrong.
Here’s the trailer. It’s got brief appearances by Kate Mara and Amber Tamblyn, but the movie is going to be all Franco. The trailer is a good teaser overall, I suppose, but it’ll be interesting to see how Boyle handles what will essentially be a one-man show. Anyway, check the trailer below.
