10. 127 Hours – 2010 (January 1)

Created By:Danny Boyle
Genre:Biography, Drama
Release Date:January 1st
Starring:James Franco
Rotten Tomatoes Rating:93%

Danny Boyle co-wrote, produced, and directed this 2010 biographical survival drama film of 127 Hours. James Franco, Kate Mara, Amber Tamblyn (Y: The Last Man), and Clemence Poesy feature in the film. The story goes around Ralston. From the time Ralston was stuck in Blue John Canyon when his arm was pinned behind a rock until he was rescued and renewed, the film’s title refers to a period of nonstop action.

Ralston remembers friends, lovers (Clemence Poesy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara) he met before his injury throughout his adventure.

The fourth film in the Hotel Transylvania franchise, Hotel Transylvania: Transformania, will be released exclusively on Amazon on January 14th. The Hotel Transylvania series combines spooky fun with high-quality animation, and the fourth and ostensibly last movie sees the staff changed into humans. In contrast, human in-law Johnny transforms into a ghoulie. Moreover, in the last chapter of Hotel Transylvania, Drac’s Pack returns in a way you’ve never seen before.

The animated sequel was set to hit theatres earlier this year, but it was eventually sold to Amazon for a Prime Video streaming launch.
