The very first trailer appeared last night during the closing credits of Film 2013, and now the trailer has made its way on-line thanks to MSN. That means that we can now share that trailer right here with you, so guess what, we have!
At the bottom of this post you will find the intriguing and intelligent trailer for Trance. The film is a thriller about heist involving a painting, but Boyle describes his film as much more than your typical heist movie: ”It begins like that,” Boyle said “But it takes the idea of a stolen painting and develops into something sleeker and more psychological, with twists and turns.”
The trailer is very good, and while it does begin as expected for these types of thrillers, it quickly changes and becomes something very interesting indeed. I don’t want to ruin the surprise, so just watch the trailer and see for yourself!
Trance is directed by Danny Boyle, and written by John Hodge and Joe Ahearne. The three lead characters are played by Rosario Dawson, James McAvoy and Vincent Cassel, and they will be joined by Tuppence Middleton, Danny Sapani, Lee Nicholas Harris, Wahab Sheikh and Sam Creed.
Trance is due to open in UK cinemas 27th March 2013.
TRANCE, directed by Oscar®-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and co-written by Oscar®-nominated long term collaborator John Hodge (Shallow Grave, Trainspotting) is a seductive and enigmatic thriller starring James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson.
Fine art auctioneer Simon (McAvoy), in league with a gang led by underworld boss Franck (Cassel), plots the audacious theft of a masterpiece by Goya from a major public auction. When Simon double-crosses the gang during the robbery, Franck retaliates violently and knocks him unconscious.
In the aftermath of the heist, Simon sticks stubbornly – and perhaps shrewdly – to his claim that the violent trauma has left him with no memory of where he stashed the artwork.
Unable to coerce the painting’s location from Simon, Franck and his associates reluctantly join forces with a charismatic hypnotherapist (Dawson) in a bid to get him to talk. But as they journey deeper into Simon’s jumbled psyche the boundaries between reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur and the stakes rise faster and far more dangerously than any of the players could have anticipated.
