127 Hours Amputation Claims First Fainting Victims

The trailers for Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours, the true story of the hiker who had to amputate his own hand after getting it trapped underneath a boulder, have avoided any and all hints of bloody arm-cutting — and for good reason! Deadline reports that two people fainted at a recent screening of the film, presumably at the part when Franco breaks and cuts off his own arm with a dull knife. We're pleased to learn there's more than brutalized wangs to make an audience feel light-headed. [Deadline]
