Lots of buzz recently about the trailer for Trance, Danny Boyle’s new art heist movie starring James McAvoy as an art thief who’s stolen a painting and then, thanks to a blow to the head, forgotten where he stashed it. Vincent Cassel is the crime boss who wants the painting found. Rosario Dawson is the hypnotherapist hired to trance McAvoy into remembering. Writers are Joe Ahearne, who wrote the 2001 TV movie on which this feature is based, and John Hodge who wrote the awesome, creepy 1994 film Shallow Grave. (Seriously, rent that one, if only for young Ewan McGregor and young Christopher Eccleston.)
Trance will have a limited U.S. release starting April 5.
