James Franco Gets Trapped in ‘127 Hours’ Trailer (VIDEO)

When James Franco isn’t satirizing his life on General Hospital, participating in art exhibits or doing other random things A-list movie stars generally shy away from, he makes a movie or two. Today, we’re seeing the first glimpse of ‘127 Hours,’ (via Videogum) the true-life story of Aron Ralston (played by Franco), the hiker who had to cut off his own arm after it became trapped under a boulder.

The Danny Boyle-directed film is the lensman’s first since the Oscar-dominating Slumdog Millionaire. While the trailer only gives us a taste of the struggle post-boulder, it sure is nice to see Franco in a leading role.
