127 Hours Trailer Starring James Franco

127 Hours Trailer: Rock, James Franco, Hard Place

I'm continually baffled by the volume of work James Franco is able to churn out (seriously, does this man ever sleep?) but here we have a new look at yet another of his many projects. In Danny Boyle's 127 Hours, Franco stars as Aron Ralston, the real-life mountain climber who got stuck among boulders during an excursion in Utah. The trailer starts off like a CoverGirl commercial: easy, breezy, beautiful. Franco bikes around gorgeous landscapes, impresses some ladies with his nature skills, and takes them on an adventure to get a closer look at their surroundings.

Unfortunately, the fun doesn't last for very long. Aron gets stuck and screams for help, but no one is around to hear his cries. Thus begins the titular 127 hours of waiting, and if you're at all familiar with the news story, you know the rest isn't exactly a picnic. The film will undoubtedly give Franco yet another vehicle to show off his acting range, and I can't wait to see the finished product —no matter how much it makes me squirm. The film hits theaters on November 5, and you can watch the trailer after the jump.
