Danny Boyle’s Trance is fast becoming one of the most anticipated films of the spring. Coming off the back of directing the Opening Ceremony of last summer’s Olympics, we can’t wait to see what Boyle brings to the table on his return to the big screen.
We got a handful of great first-look images late last year. And the New Year brought with it the awesome first trailer. And now the first teaser poster has debuted over at Total Film, giving us the first in a new set of three.
“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.”
James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel, and Rosario Dawson star as the leading trio, with Tuppence Middleton, Danny Sapani, Lee Nicholas Harris, and Wahab Sheikh completing the cast.
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.
The last we saw of Boyle’s work on the big screen was 2010’s unforgettable 127 Hours, earning Boyle two Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay, to go nicely with his Academy Award for Best Director on Slumdog Millionaire. And following his great work directing last summer’s events, we’re very much looking forward to his return.
Trance will be released in the UK on 27th March, and that’s a date you’ll want to commit to memory. No word yet on a US release date, but we imagine that that will be changing quite soon. Fox Searchlight will be distributing across the Atlantic, and we’re just waiting on the date. For now, here’s the first teaser poster, which you can click through to enlarge. And be sure to check back for when the second and third hit. Enjoy.
