Danny Boyle‘s Trance: First Look

Posted by Grey Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Award-winning British film-maker Danny Boyle is back with a crime thriller and The Daily Zombies takes a First Look at the film set to be released in the US in April. 

An art heist went uncontrollably wrong when the mastermind loses his memories and can't recall where he stashed the loot and resulting in a manic quest that transcend reality, desire, and hynoptic suggestion involving the mob boss behind the heist (Vincent Cassel), the amnesiac fine art auctioneer (James McAvoy), and his hypnotist (Rosario Dawson). Sounds just fine for a crime thriller film directed by the impeccable Danny Boyle.

The Award-winning British film-maker that brought us Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later, and the unforgettable Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Summer Olympic Games is back in the game with Trance. Set to be released in the US on April 5th, 2013, Trance looks to be promising material both based on the credential as well as the freshly-released first trailer.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer followed by some nifty posters released thus far for the film.

And here are the official set images from the film.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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.

Trance is currently scheduled to be released on April 5, 2013.
