A short teaser trailer for Danny Boyle’s hotly anticipated “127 Hours” hit the web a couple weeks back; today a full-length trailer gives us a better look at what appears to be a truly standout performance by James Franco. Boyle is also clearly bringing his usual visual flair and kinetic energy to the story, which should be quite interesting, considering the ironic contrast with the subject matter. Danny Boyle’s whole production crowd from “Slumdog Millionaire” is back with him on this one, including writer Simon Beaufoy, cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle and composer A.R. Rahman. Will we have a rematch of the 2008 director race in Boyle vs. Fincher?
