Inside the mind – outside the law, guess that’s why we’re all excited about Danny Boyle‘s upcoming enigmatic thriller simply titled Trance. As you already had a chance to see from the first trailer, the movie stars James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson in the leading roles, and so far – it looks like quite intense story. Today, we have two great character posters and two more images from the whole thing – make sure you check it out in the rest of this report!
Director Danny Boyle co-wrote the script together with John Hodge, and the whole thing centers on McAvoy’s character – an art auctioneer Simon, mixed up with a criminal gang who joins forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting.
Or, if you prefer the official synopsis:
Fine art auctioneer Simon, in league with a gang led by underworld boss Franck, 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 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.
Trance is still without an official release date here in US, but as usual – wth every new update about the movie – we’ll be back!
