The first teaser trailer for Danny Boyle‘s follow-up to his Best Picture Academy Award winning Slumdog Millionaire has been released by Fox Searchlight.
The movie, titled 127 Hours, tells the true story of a mountain climber who finds himself fighting to survive a seemingly impossible situation while reflecting on the life he has lived and the people he has met. True story survival films such as Cast Away and Alive have always been incredibly compelling, and we’ve seen life reflection in the face of death stories in movies like Ladder 49, so just such a story as told by Mr. Boyle should be really fantastic.
