My excitement level just shot through the roof. Danny Boyle's upcoming crime opus Trance now looks longer on bloodshed and shorter on laughs than first impressions suggested. Either way, his flair for the visual and knack for high-octane storytelling looks to be in full effect here.
Here is the synopsis: James McAvoy stars as a fine art auctioneer who has teamed up with a
criminal gang to steal a Goya painting worth millions. However, after
suffering a blow to the head during the heist, he has no recollection of
where he hid it. The gang's leader hires a hypnotherapist (Rosario
Dawson) to bring the truth to light, delving deep into Simon's
subconscious where reality is blurred with fiction and deceit.
Factor in bad ass Vincent Cassel and a screenplay from Joe Ahearne (Dr. Who) and John Hodge (a Boyle regular) and I think it's safe to bet that, come Trance's March 27 release in the U.K., followed by a U.S. release on April 5, we're all going to be winners. Check out the red band trailer below for the gory goodness.
