A few days ago Total Film got the exclusive on a brand new, hypnotic poster for Danny Boyle’s new heist thriller, Trance. Today see’s the release of the first UK quad poster for the film, and it is rather striking.
The poster features the three main characters played by James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel all in serious poses with a hypnotic design behind them. It is certainly the sort of poster that will stand out, and as for the film itself, well it looks awesome doesn’t it!
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.
