With just a week to go before Danny Boyle’s heist thriller with a twist lands in UK cinemas, we have what could be the last piece of promotional activity to share with you.
Released yesterday is a brand new behind the scenes featurette which has interviews with the cast, and Mr Boyle himself, and the nearly four minute video has plenty to enjoy. There is a small amount of new footage to see, plus the cast and Boyle share their thoughts on the film and hint at the brilliance that is to come from Trance.
Also revealed today is a brand new US TV spot for the film (the date advertised is for US theaters), plus a collection of new images featuring some very serious looking characters!
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.
