Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.08.13] United Kingdom thriller



We haven't been keeping close watch on Danny Boyle's Trance mostly because the first trailer felt like this would be a fairly typical, middle of the road heist movie but leave to Danny Boyle to put a twist on things. I should know better than to underestimate Boyle.

Add to the mix James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson and the always great Vincent Cassel and Mr. Boyle, you have my full attention.


Since seeing the new clip which has emerged online, I've gone back to check out the movie's red band trailer from a few weeks back and boy, am I glad I did. The story, which sees McAvoy as an auctioneer who becomes mixed up in a heist and goes ends up under the guidance of a hypnotherapist to help him find a stolen painting, sounds pretty run of the mill but the trailer is far from it, full of the bright colours, thumping music and the controlled chaos of Boyle's camera movements not to mention a peppering of genre goodness. And if that's not enough of a sales pitch, there's also the newly released clip which shows the unfolding heist.

Trance opens March 27th.
