Danny Boyle‘s last two films were rousing pieces of big entertainment, the crowd pleasing “Slumdog Millionaire” and the survival tale “127 Hours.” Both chased Oscar glory (the former doing much better than the latter, obvs) but what does Boyle do to wind down? Deliver something a little leaner and a bit pulpier. Welcome to “Trance.”
As the movie continues to gear up for its U.K. release (and as we continue to be left in the dark stateside), two more poster have arrived. One, your standard U.K. quad with all the leads, James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel. And the other, a nifty teaser that will have you hypnotized. Why all the mind tricks? Well, the story centers on a heist gone wrong, and the man who is the key to unlocking it all…has amenesia. So a therapist tries to help him remember with a little bit of hypnotism, and of course, things don’t go according to plan.
