Fox Searchlight has released a new trailer and poster for Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours. The film has been picking up highly-positive buzz on the festival circuit. While the first trailer for the movie barely noted that protagonist Aron Ralston (played by James Franco) became trapped under a boulder while mountain climbing, this new trailer spends its second-half showing his desperation. Franco looks tremendous and I’m now even more excited to see this film.
Hit the jump to check out the new trailer and poster. 127 Hours co-stars Amber Tamblyn, Kate Mara, and Clemence Poesy. It opens November 5th.

Here’s the official synopsis for 127 Hours:
127 HOURS is the new film from Danny Boyle, the Academy Award winning director of last year’s Best Picture, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE. 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.
