James Franco is between a rock and hard place in new 127 Hours poster

Oct. 8, 2010by: Paul Tassi

I've heard nothing but high praise for James Franco's performance in Danny Boyle's 127 HOURS, and I'll be curious to see the man carry almost an entire film on his back. Granted I've loved him since FREAKS AND GEEKS, but did I imagine him someday getting Oscar buzz? Didn't quite cross my mind.

Yesterday, we saw a rather good new trailer for the film, and today we have a new poster, which is visually striking and gets a symbolic "time is of the essence" message across. It's not a scene actually in the movie, but puts the "man vs. boulder" theme pretty well out in the open.

Check it out below, and click to see a hi-res version over at the Pimpin' Poster Palace.

Danny Boyle is one of my favorite directors, without a doubt. All of his movies are really really good. On another note: Dammit, Judd Apatow, give Charlie Hunnam a chance! I have a theory that all those Apatowsians are jealous of his good looks. Yep.

Watch the trailer

I absolutely love the 2nd trailer for this movie...I watched it thinking it was comedy(the first half of the trailer is very upbeat),but then the tone completely changed near the end...it sent chills down my spine...very good trailer.

It's weird that Hunnam hasn't gotten the Apatow film treatment that most everybody else that was with him for his TV years has received.

Cool poster. Movie looks great. As for Charlie Hunnam, the guy will break out soon. It's just that he is kicking so much ass on Sons of Anarchy that he doesn't have time to kick ass on films.

The Armless Wonder

A lot of people are commenting on how the boulders symbolize a horizontal hourglass and how every grain of sand is vital to survival, but I still wouldn't sacrifice the imagery they did of the Utah Rockies just to emphasize that considering they're going a little overboard with the time concept in their title and tagline. We get it, he's gonna die if he doesn't cut off his arm!

It's CHARLIE HUNNAM.

He's stolen just about every scene he was in during Cold Mountain, Children of Men and Green Street Hooligans. He's currently in one of the best shows on television, Sons of Anarchy. I'd say he's doing all right.

Nobody is saying he isn't doing alright... but scene stealing in Cold Mountain isn't exactly blowing up the film industry...

Yeah, I like Sons of Anarchy too, but I think he could be an A-list movie star and his film career hasn't taken off yet like Franco's has.
