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.
