Here’s a new trailer for Ecstasy which stars Billy Boyd who you’ll know from Lord of the Rings. He’s rather a long way from the Shire in this new movie though as you’ll see from the trailer. I’ve called it a red-band trailer in the title simply because it has the ‘C’ word written at the end of it and a split second of a sex scene but other than that, it won’t offend too much. Ecstasy is based on the book by Irvine Welsh (Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance) and will be with us April 20th.
Ecstasy stars Adam Sinclair, Kristin Kreuk, Billy Boyd, Carlo Rota, Stephen McHattie, Alex Lifeson and is directed by Rob Heydon.
Based on Irvine Welsh’s controversial book, Ecstasy: Three Tales of Chemical Romance, ECSTASY is a twisted tale that explores the euphoric highs and the devastating lows of a chemical romance. Lloyd (Adam Sinclair) is on top of the world – beautiful girls, great club sounds, and a never ending supply of the love drug, sustained by a smuggling sideline for the local drug boss Solo (Carlo Rota). But when he meets Heather (Kristin Kreuk) he is forced to question if the love he feels is real or just another chemical high. As cracks start to appear in his world he realises he wants out. If he can just pull off one last trip for Solo, he’ll be free.
Ecstasy also stars Billy Boyd as DJ and e-prophet Woodsy, cameos from John Digweed and Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson, and a pulsing soundtrack from some of the industry’s biggest names, including Tiesto, Coldplay, Orbital, Primal Scream, Bonjay, The Mahones and Hawksley Workman. Directed by Rob Heydon, Ecstasy was shot in 2011 on location in Scotland, Amsterdam and Canada.
