Danny Boyle’s Trance is fast becoming one of the spring’s most anticipated movies. The psychological crime-thriller marks the director’s eagerly-awaited return behind the camera for his first film since 127 Hours, and following his work directing the Opening Ceremony of the Summer Olympics last year.
The first trailer for the film landed earlier in the month. And since then, we’ve seen three teaser posters, with one for each of the leading trio in James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson, and most recently Vincent Cassel.
Now the first quad poster for the film has arrived, giving us another great look at the film. (Albeit with Cassel’s pose on the poster somewhat reminiscent of that of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Rian Johnson’s Looper.)
“A fine art auctioneer mixed up with a gang joins forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting. As boundaries between desire, reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur the stakes rise faster than anyone could have anticipated.”
McAvoy, Dawson, and Cassel star as the leading trio, with support coming from Tuppence Middleton, Danny Sapani, Lee Nicholas Harris, and Wahab Sheikh.
Boyle is directing from a script co-written by Joe Ahearne (Apparitions) and John Hodge (Trainspotting), partly inspired by Ahearne’s 2001 TV movie of the same name.
Trance will be released in the UK on 27th March, which really can’t come fast enough. Still no word yet on a US release date, but Fox Searchlight have the rights for the film in America, and will hopefully be releasing it around the spring/early summer there too. For now, here’s the new poster for the film, which you can click through to enlarge.
