127 HOURS is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued.

The movie is directed by Danny Boyle (28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire) who also worked on adapting the screenplay from Ralston’s book. Interestingly there is said to be about an hour or so that goes by without any dialogue. 127 Hours is slated to release on November 5th.
