What an amazing idea!

We've gotten word that Aron Ralston, the real life climber on which the Academy-Award nominated film, 127 Hours, is based, will be competing on Minute To Win It tonight for charity, and James Franco, who plays him in the film, will be making a surprise guest appearance!

Holy shiz! Not only is it a lovely gesture, but we imagine that this will be a whole lot less awkward that Mark Zuckerberg's cameo on Saturday Night Live when Jesse Eisenberg guest-hosted!

Best of luck tonight, Aron!

Danny Boyle's New Film Debuts To Standing Ovation!

We're not surprised! If anyone could pull out another serious Oscar contender this early in the season, it would be Danny Boyle!

The director publicly debuted his latest film, 127 Hours - which chronicles the real life story of a man named Aron Ralston, who was forced to amputate his own arm after becoming stuck under a boulder - at the Toronto film festival, and it was reportedly met with a standing ovation from the audience!

Afterwards, Boyle, Rolston, and James Franco - who plays Rolston - took to the stage, and the real-life survivor thanked the filmmaker for convincing him to adapt his story to film.

He said:

“I have to say thank you to everyone who’s standing next to me on the stage. As a documentary it wouldn’t have been anywhere near as powerful as what that was. Thank you for convincing me otherwise.”

It sounds like this one's definitely going to to generate a lot more buzz than it's already starting to!

Definitely not an easy film to watch, but an important one to see!

What do U think?? Do U want to see 127 Hours??

Fresh For Awards Season! New Danny Boyle/James Franco Movie Coming In November!

We imagine this one won't be easy to watch, but we're sure it's going to be amazing!

Director Danny Boyle's new film, 127 Hours - his first since the Academy Award winning Slumdog Millionaire - has just secured a November 5th release date, despite having no promotional material - or even a screening - released so far!

And right before awards season?! We think that's pretty bold!

The movie stars James Franco as the real-life mountain climber Aron Ralston, who was forced to cut his own arm off with a knife when he became trapped under a boulder! Janis Ian Lizzy Caplan, Kate Mara and Amber Tamblyn co-star.

Like we said - not something that's going to be easy to watch! But we trust Danny Boyle!

And James Franco is still easy on the eyes - even if he's in various states of peril!

What do U think?? Will U go see 127 Hours??
