"127 Hours" is a movie from Danny Boyle, the Academy Award winning director of 2008'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 falling boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated slot canyon in Utah. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (Clémence Poésy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara) he met before his accident. Over the next five days Ralston battles the elements and his own demons to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, descend a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Told with a dynamic narrative structure, "127 Hours" is 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.

Fox Searchlight Pictures' "127 Hours" is directed by Danny Boyle from a screenplay by Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy ("Slumdog Millionaire") based on the book "Between a Rock and a Hard Place" by Aron Ralston.

Kelly, François Ivernel, Cameron McCracken, Lisa Maria Falcone and Tessa Ross. The cast, headed by James Franco, includes Amber Tamblyn, Kate Mara, Clémence Poésy, Kate Burton and Lizzy Caplan.

("Slumdog Millionaire") and Enrique Chediak ("28 Days Later"), production and costume designer Suttirat Larlarb ("Slumdog Millionaire"), editor Jon Harris ("Kick-ass") with music by A.R.
