The trailer for Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours has emerged, giving us a very clear idea how a movie about a dude with his arm stuck under a rock could be turned into a film that is quickly gathering intense praise and Oscar buzz. The trailer is beautiful, dynamic, and shows Boyle is up to some serious split-screen tricks, while Franco has infused Aron Ralston with a springy joy that will make his very immediate reality check all the more crushing (pun partly intended).

Per usual, I’ve snatched out the shots that grabbed me and you can click to check them out in high-res. The trailer is embedded below, but you can also grab it at the source- Apple Trailers.
