The first trailer for Danny Boyle‘s upcoming crime thriller Trance is here, and we definitely recommend you to check it out. I mean, we finally have a much better look at the leading cast which includes James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson (let’s face it – those previous images and set photos were just not enough!) Make sure you find the video in the rest of this report and let us know what you think!
So, as we previously reported, Danny Boyle directs this enigmatic thriller from a script he co-wrote together with John Hodge, which centers on an art auctioneer mixed up with a criminal gang who joins forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting.
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.
James McAvoy plays Simon, Vincent Cassel is that boss Franck and Rosario Dawson plays (who else) a charismatic hypnotherapist.
Trance is still without an official release date, but as usual – we’ll keep an eye on it!
