In case you've forgotten, James Franco will not only be cohosting the Oscars this Sunday in an epic way, but he may also just walk away with a little golden boy of his own. OK, maybe not.
Still, that's not to say he isn't deserving of one for his work in 127 Hours. After all, his performance in the film is certainly, um, a cut above anything he's ever done before, and in this exclusive sneak peek at a deleted scene featured on the movie's upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release (this Tuesday), we're indeed reminded of that.
Back in 2010, there were two popular movies released which take place entirely (or almost entirely) in a confined space wherein a man is trapped and fighting for his life.
Chillopedia: King Solomon s/o King and Prophet David once said, and so is written in the book of Proverbs , ‘The prudent see danger and take refuge…’. Survival doesn’t happen just by chance but by profound wisdom, rightful strategy, strong willpower and tremendous courage and the survival movies need to be very carefully filmed, structured and directed.
Aron Ralston (James Franco – Pineapple Express) is a mountain climber on a routine trek across canyons in Moab, Utah. Whilst navigating a crevice, he loses his balance and falls down against a boulder which is nestling between the walls of the canyon. The shifting boulder crushes his hand and wedges Aron against the cave wall and leaves him trapped, isolated from help and with no one knowing his location. Aron takes stock of his life as he comes to terms with his predicament and the realisation that drastic measures will need to be taken if he is to survive this situation.
