The good stuff keeps on rolling in for Danny Boyle’s intense and, quite frankly, bonkers looking new thriller, Trance. Each new trailer, clip or featurette keeps unraveling new footage and new pieces of absolute brilliance, and I truly believe Boyle has yet again out-done himself with Trance.
The latest trailer is quite a short one, but after a brief build up, it goes right for the action as it delivers one astonishing piece of action after another. All blended with trippy music, nightmarish visuals and a real sense of utter chaos, in a way only Boyle know how. The new trailer is embedded below, enjoy!
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.
