Audience Vomits, Faints During Franco Film Don't go see '127 Hours' if you have a weak stomach By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Oct 29, 2010 10:36 AM CDT 23 comments Comments Actor James Franco, who plays Aron Ralston in the film, arrives for the European Premiere of 127 Hours in central London, Thursday, Oct. 28, 2010. (AP Photo/Joel Ryan) (Newser) – Audiences are swooning at 127 Hours, and not because James Franco is just so dreamy. Paramedics were called to last night's UK premiere after people started fainting—and worse, the Sun reports. The gory film is based on the true story of a mountain climber, played by Franco, who cuts off his own arm after it gets trapped under a rock. "A man got up in the row behind me to rush out but he was sick in the aisle before he managed to get out," says one witness. Two people also fainted at a US screening earlier this month, Deadline reports.
