New Red Band Trailer for Danny Boyle’s ‘Trance’ Will Blow Your Mind

By  · Published on February 14th, 2013

Holy brain-splattering hell. Danny Boyle. Yes. The director is back with Trance, a film that looked interesting and now – because of this red band trailer – looks un-missable. The movie stars James McAvoy as an art auctioneer who loses his memory after hiding a painting that a bunch of thieves are willing to kill for, so they force him to undergo hypnosis to find what they want.

Featuring a percussive punch that gives immediacy to the idea of time running out as McAvoy’s character hovers in a mental limbo, this new trailer is aggressive and, no matter how much this phrase has become overused, jaw-dropping.

Just watch it. Just watch:

Trance is in theaters March 23rd. Mark your calendars.
