Total Film got the exclusive on a rather cool teaser poster for Danny Boyle’s latest masterpiece, Trance. Boyle’s first film since 2010’s 127 Hours, Trance see’s the director head back to head-scratching thriller mode after the likes of 127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire and Millions. Boyle has put his directing abilities to almost every genre including horror (28 Days Later), sci-fi (Sunshine), true stories (127 Hours), dark thrillers (Shallow Grave), strange love stories (A Life Less Ordinary), messed up drama (The Beach, Trainspotting) and feel good movies (Millions, Slumdog Millionaire). Basically, whatever Boyle tries, he makes his own and makes it better than anyone else.
Now the director is heading back to making thrillers, but in true Boyle fashion, he does not intend to conform to what you would normally expect, and Trance is set to turn the heist thriller on its head. The teaser poster revealed by Total Film is terrific and is an image that really will leave you transfixed and a little blurry eyed after. Check it out below.
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.
