Red Band Trailer for Danny Boyle’s TRANCE Starring James McAvoy – Plus New Poster
A new red band trailer for Danny Boyle’s crime thriller Trance is now online via Yahoo! A few weeks ago, we saw some cool optical illusion character posters featuring stars James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson, and Vincent Cassel. James McAvoy stars as Simon, a fine art auctioneer who is involved in the theft of a masterpiece and double crosses the group during the robbery. Simon subsequently develops amnesia, and a hypnotist (Rosario Dawson) tries to jog his memory. This red band trailer certainly isn’t for the faint of heart as it shows images of bloody violence, torture, and sex. Along with the trailer is a new poster featuring James McAvoy. Hit the jump at your own risk! Just kidding, it’s awesome.
Trance is directed by Academy Award Winner Danny Boyle and stars James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson, and Vincent Cassel. The film hits theaters in the U.K. March 27th, 2013 and will make its way overseas to the U.S. on April 5th, 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.
