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.

For the unaware, there is indeed a new movie on the way called Hot Tub Time Machine, and it looks hilarious. The movie is basically a cross between Old School, Ski School, and Back to the Future. It follows a group of four friends who drink themselves silly and somehow wake up in the year 1986. I guess Dave Attell was right when he called drinking until you black out “time travel.”
The movie stars Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Rob Corddry, and the perfect and required ’80s throwback casting of none other than John Cusack! Also appearing in the movie is Lizzy Caplan and a couple other potentially amusing ’80s throwback castings in Crispin Glover and Chevy Chase.
A regular family-friendly version of the trailer was released a while back, but we all know that the most fun comes from the Red Band trailers. Instead of choosing, you can click over to the other side now and watch both trailers. If you’re at work, go green; if you’re home alone, definitely go red.
