James McAvoy and Rosario Dawson deal with art theft and memory loss in 'Trance' trailer
Latest Danny Boyle film also stars Vincent Cassel
After overseeing the pomp and glitz of the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony, Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle is back with his latest feature film, the hybrid thriller "Trance."
James McAvoy stars as an art dealer who suffers from amnesia after a botched heist led by Vincent Cassel ("Eastern Promises"). Rosario Dawson is the hot hypnotherapist trying to help McAvoy remember the location of a missing masterpiece -- or is she? The sexy, fast-paced twists and turns that ensue may make you consder the idea that "no piece of art is worth a human life."
Watch the trailer here:
"Trance" seems to feature all the hallmarks of the "Slumdog Millionaire" director's filmography: A hip, international cast, driving pop music, eye-popping colors and pyrotechnic camera work. It looks like a bit more of a fun lark that his most recent films, which include the often dour "Slumdog," "127 Hours," and "Sunshine."
The film also reunites Boyle with screenwriter John Hodge -- who wrote Boyle's "Shallow Grave" and "Trainspotting -- for the first time since 2000's "The Beach." Joe Ahearne ("Doctor Who") co-wrote with Hodge.
"Trance" has yet to set a release date in the U.S., but opens in the U.K. March 27.
