Danny Boyle's 127 HOURS trailer hits - a new wave in suspense begins...

Published at: Aug. 24, 2010, 5:39 p.m. CST

Hey folks, Harry here and it seems we have the new wave in suspense film making. Lionsgate has BURIED with Ryan Reynolds - about a soldier buried alive with his cel phone by, well... bad people. Or at the very least people with different priorities. Now we see that Danny Boyle's 127 HOURS is about being alone, stuck, in the middle of nowhere... and let's see how it turns out for James Franco. Then there's Alfonso Cuaron's GRAVITY - about an astronaut that has a cataclysmic accident that separates her from the Hubble on a declining orbit in the vastness of space. Probably constantly in contact, but hopelessly screwed. Now, this isn't anything particularly new... We all remember OPEN WATER, right? Hitchcock explored the theme with LIFEBOAT, but I do think this is the first time that we've had a series of films hit with the common theme of being hopelessly alone. Now the first to get released is going to be BURIED. Everyone that I know that has seen it has the highest recommendations for the film. I know it is also hard to bet against Danny Boyle and 127 HOURS. And if you're going to bet against Alfonso Cuaron and GRAVITY - you're insane. I just think it is fascinating that we've got a series of high quality alone films coming. Of course you're waiting for this link where you can see the trailer for 127 HOURS. This is so not a film for my Dad. He got stuck for hours spelunking and DESCENT freaked him. This. This is his nightmare.

    I get what you're saying but like I said from experiencing a situation of dangerous isolation, it's a pure form of dread in today's desensitised society. I started working out how to break into people's garages so I could steal a car or just get shelter. It really is a sudden shift in perception and makes you do things you wouldn't consider. Everyone should experience being on the fringe once. I can see where the drama would come from.

  • I love the cinematography in Boyle's movie for one thing.. but the fact that main character is so identifiable... I know something about those situations on epic mountain bike rides where it gets sketchy about how you're gettin back to your vehicle in one piece. And that true to life scene of painfully crashing but totally laughing at yourself as initial reaction ... nice one. I'm there

    For better or worse...

    by ConfusedPanda

    ...it's interesting to see a trailer that seems to have slapped on its central conflict in the final seconds of the trailer. You can obviously make the point that the trailer was made to entice potential viewers with (1) it's a true story, and (2) this guy had an interesting, adventurous/spirited life. Still, my thoughts during the trailer's final seconds, which says nothing definitive about the quality of the overall movie, weren't "Oh no, he just got stuck! How terrible. I want to learn what happens next," which I think was the intended reaction. Instead, the final seconds called attention to themselves, feeling slapped on. I didn't expect that reaction because I am familiar with the true story/source material (I own the book).

    I'm interested to know the story of how you got stranded in Germany, because something similar happened to me. I was on my way to a music festival in Denmark, someone spiked my drink at a bar and I was left robbed with no money, no passport and literally with just the clothes on my back in a foreign country. Terrifying.

    I strongly agree with you. I thought Sunshine was pretty solid for nearly 3/4 of its running time. Then, it went into derivative "turn off your brain" mode. I also agree about The Beach. It has its flaws, yet it's more interesting and respectable than a lot of people give it credit for.

    Mine involved being stranded at a music festival in Germany. I still had money but I was in the middle of no-where. A massive field surrounded by forests and almost completely devoid of people. I ended up getting back to my hotel eventually but it was terrible. Was frozen cold, had cuts on my hand from barbwire (from a park I tried to get into) and ended up using up all the cash I had. I vowed never to return to Germany.

    What a dumbass looking preview.

    by Viewer 3

    Seriously, I understand that they always feel as though they have to add extra "cool and hip" elements to true stories to make them film-worthy (meaning adding tons of BS filler and making it "sexy" and "totally awesome")... but they could've done a MUCH better job with a preview like this. What is this, a suspense movie? An adventure movie? 97.3% of the trailer feels like a Piranha 3D totally-rad-Spring-break preview.<p><p>"Oh well we're gonna give it a light-hearted, free-spirited, adventurous feel so people won't expect it when we finally show the part where he gets trapped, and it'll be totally shocking to everyone as they realize what the movie is REALLY about. We're total marketing geniuses."<p><p>I guess this is just a teaser or something, so maybe the real trailer will actually take itself seriously. That is, if this is even supposed to be a serious movie. I honestly have no clue; judging by this preview, it could be a comedy for all I know. In which case this trailer would be a complete success.

    It's foolish. Let the film speak for itself. You don't see the trailer for "Black Swan" showing clips of "Pi", "Requiem For A Dream", "The Fountain" and "The Wrestler". It spoke for itself. <P>That said, the movie looks interesting. Also like how in the brief glimpses I saw in the trailer, he captured the beauty of the canyons in Utah. <P>I'd rather watch a movie like this than watch a movie where tech nerds type on laptops and threaten each other while cover of Radiohead's "Creep" plays...

    People seem to hate that movie on this site. I enjoyed that movie. I have seen it a few times and still enjoy it. I can see why people hate it. Especially since the Twitter generation seemed to go a little too overboard in the praise of it... Kinda like the way people are going on and on now about Inception. <P>Either way, it was a film where if you are not into the premise and story and don't believe in fate, then the film is really not for you. <P>The only Boyle movie I outright hated was 28 Days Later. People love the shit out of that movie, but after the awesome waking up to a dead world sequence, the rest of the movie is boring IMO.

    This looks to be a bit of a stretch. Ralston went out on his own, told no one where he was and had an accident. Many rules of backcountry travel were broken. Sure, he survived, but he's not viewed as a hero by anyone in the climbing community, that's for sure.

    Gonna be great

    by TomHooligan

    Firstly we have one of the greatest directors on the planet and secondly we have James Franco. I'm a massive Danny Boyle fan because, lets face it, he's made some immense films and hasn't been defined by one particular genre. In this day and age that's an impressive feat for any successful director. I've been on the Danny Boyle train since shallow grave and he has yet to dissapoint (even with the beach, which didn't live up to the novel but was still entertaining). Likewise, James Franco is consistantly the best thing about most films that he stars in. He's a great actor and is funny as hell .this will be great.

    by rbatty024

    It will be interesting how he deals with the self imposed narrative restrictions. I'm a sucker for single location (or close to single location) films. 12 Angry Men, Cube, Rear Window, Lifeboat are all great examples. I'll be interested to see if Franco can carry most of the film on his shoulders.

I still enjoy it though.

    Kind of a weak trailer, really

    by Kammich

    The tacked-on elements promoting how "adventurous" his life were just come off as canned Hollywood-Honeymoon shit that you would see in a terrible movie like "A Perfect Getaway." And they save the reveal of the premise for the last 5 seconds, and then don't do a very good job of showing what should be a really awesome suspense piece. *shrug* I really don't care, because with Danny Boyle directing and James Franco running the show by himself, I know it will be awesome. I'm just underwhelmed by the trailer.

    My surreal "I'm gonna die out here" moment

    by Teddy Artery

    My surreal "I'm gonna die out here" moment came to me when I drove my late 80s model VW Jetta (BTW, this is years ago, before cell phones were commonplace) out to Colorado from Los Angeles. I had what I thought was a fuel line problem, which caused my car to violently buck and stall repeatedly, so I stopped temporarily in Vegas and got an opinion from the "car guy" who was with my brother in a separate car as we all traveled on the road together. I thought i'd have to go back to L.A. but since I didn't want to miss out on Christmas in CO, I instead decided to go on. Well, when I reached the snowy hills and mountains on the way, my car died repeatedly. I had no phone, it was very late, I didn't have a working radio in my car and there were no cars on the road AND I did not have heavy winter clothing. I knew I was going to die frozen in place if I did not somehow make it. I was not even sure where the destination was, since the car I was following had the map! Well, I finally made it to CO at something like 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning, I had found the place by memory (I had been there before, but not this way) and I was totally bleary eyed and shaking like a leaf. All true.

We cheer when dipshits like this get massacred in Piranha 3D and, yet, we are now expected to sympathize with one of them? Why?

    The Danny Boyle Syndrome

    by MorganLeafy

    What is the problem with Danny Boyle? Every movie of him that I’ve seen (Trainspotting, Shallow Grave, The Beach, Slumdog Millionaire) and apparently Sunshine as well starts off well and then about halfway through everything just falls apart. He’s like a very talented athlete that never wins a race. Strange

    by DiscoGodfather

    ...does everything "fall apart"? I've seen the movie many times (it's been a favorite since it was in theatres, where I saw it twice) and have yet to figure out where it is. Is it supposed to be before or after Renton moves to London? Also, even if it does allegedly slump, Renton's monologue at the end has gotta redeem it. That still give me chills.

    by MorganLeafy

    It’s been a while since I’ve seen Trainspotting, but after he moves to London sounds about right. It could be that it’s less distinct than in his other movies, but I’m willing to bet that all your favorite parts occur in the first half.

  • Aug. 25, 2010, 6:45 a.m. CST

    The Choppah - Yes indeed

    by The StarWolf

    TRAINSPOTTING was a film which featured not one likable character. Just a bunch of losers doing loser things. This is supposed to be good cinema? SUNSHINE demands that we ignore all that's known of astrophysics, at a minimum. Then it takes a 'fair' SF film and changes it in midstream to gothic horror for no reason whatsoever. And, along the way, it has more plot holes than the main street here has pot holes. Or, 28 DAYS LATER which a high school student could have done a better job with. Picking at random from the LONG list of screwups in that film ... protagonist wandering 'dead', silent London and the director superimposes ... loud rock music?! The only way this idiot could have done worse is if he'd picked country/western. Yet people seem to think he's a good director? Unbelievable ...

    I dislike it when a trailer forcefeeds past glories ...

    by JackGraham

    this trailer mentions virtually all of Boyles films and focuses particularly on Slumdog. I'm all for the usual caption of "from the director of" but i think this trailer takes the idea of past glorys marketing to a whole new level. I'm intrigued about the film though. I like survival dramas, absolutely loved Into the wild and this seems to have a similar vibe.

    Still I like some of Boyle's films

    by Samuel Fulmer

    28 Days Later, Shallow Grave, and Trainspotting. Never saw Millions even though it is usually touted as some kind of lost classic from the past few years.

    Sunshine was TERRIBLE

    by Viewer 3

    The shameless use of the cheesy shaky-blur cam every time Freddy-in-space was on-screen was literally laughable. That single idiotic cinematographic choice literally killed the entire movie for me. And that's saying a lot. But seriously, it looked like a joke. And that's not sarcasm-- I honestly couldn't see how any movie these days outside of a Sci-Fi channel made-for-TV-special could think something like that looked "cool" or "spooky", much less a director who is supposed to be competent. So I figured it must be a joke-version of the movie pre-edited for TV or something.

    The Biggest Beach of All Time

    by animatronicmojo

    I was digging The Beach until Leo literally jumped the shark. All downhill racing from there. Likewise, I was loving some Sunshine, until the Extra Crispy Captain showed up and it devolved into ye olde psycho killer in space plot. Still, the eye candy at the end was fun, but why the big concern earlier that they were running out of air when the bomb was essentially this gigantic seemingly air-filled room? Continuity is a beach. If this does well, next we'll have "128 Hours," or will it be Days?

    and survived..where's the suspense? Gee, when will he start hacking? Umm, toward the end of the movie? He probably had to fight off mountain lions and such, but still..

    It's getting confusing how many movies are now being named after numbers. 15 minutes, 88 minutes, 28, 127 hours, 21 lbs. Numbers are so fucking boring!

    Stephen King wrote a nifty and diturbing version of that scenario called “A Very Tight Place” It is the last of 13 short stories in the book “Just After Sunset”.

    Sorry, but The Beach is mostly great.

    by J.B.M.A.

    Sure it has a couple of crap moments - the videogame sequence in the forest and the talking shark - and it's rather a shame that the most interesting character from the book was amalgamated with Leo, but so what? The characters are interesting, not least because they DON'T act like perfect human beings. Also the cinematography is fabulous and the soundtrack selection perfect. It is also a rarity in that it has a MUCH better ending than in the print version.<p>Still, endings do seem to a problem in at least two Boyle films. 28 Days, and Sunshine are quite brilliant up until the 3/4 mark when they become utter toss.<p>What happened?

    No self-amputating in my story either, but I did get separated from my tour group in a fairly desolate stretch of Mexico in '98. I found a taxi who would take me back to the coast for $50 American dollars. I smiled at him and said,<P> "How about three American dollars?" Because that was all I had on me. One guy wanted to "buy" my camera. I said no thanks, asked around some more, and finally someone told me to walk that way about a mile to the bus depot.<P> Got to do alot of thinking as I walked in shorts and sandals thru the Mexican desert. Figured if I had to walk all the way back to the states, at least it would make for a good story.<P>Found the bus stop, spent $2 on a ticket, caught a bus back to the coast. Chatted up two British chicks who were there on a backpacking holiday. Good times.
