Aron Ralston movie "127 Hours" opens November 5

127 Hours, director Danny Boyle's film about Aron Ralston trapped in a Utah canyon, opens this Friday, November 5. James Franco plays the trapped hiker/climber.

I only saw a slightly extended trailer back in August at Outdoor Retailer, but there's a lot of good buzz and anticipation around the film (just check out all those glowing quotes on the official movie site).

Apparently the self-amputation scene is intense and not for the faint of heart. Reports of people fainting at screenings appear in the Los Angeles Times.

Movie buffs can read Vanity Fair's interview with Boyle, Franco, and Ralston discussing the film.

Visit the official 127 Hours site for more info and to find out when the movie opens in a (metro) theater near you.

Please see it first and then tell me.  I don't know if I can handle it but it looks so inspiring!

I can't imagine anyone filming on location had the nerve to utter the phrase: Break a leg...

I read that people have fainted and been physically sick at some openings. Apparently the dismembering scene is somewhat graphic.

The word is that there hasn't been a reaction to a film like this since The Exorcist!!

The New York Times movie review says: “127 Hours,” a chronicle of accident and determination, is nearly flawless.
