‘Trance’ Trailer Can Make James McAvoy Do Anything It Wants

By  · Published on January 14th, 2013

Danny Boyle is back in March with Trance, a movie that sees James McAvoy forgetting where he put a stolen painting, the Vincent Cassel– led gangsters that want it and Rosario Dawson attempting to use hypnotherapy to bring that memory back.

The first trailer is the best kind of bait and switch. It opens like an airy, empty art house attempt before bashing McAvoy’s head in and revealing the twisty, violent Boyle goodness buried within.

Check it out for yourself:

Plus, there’s an actress named Tuppence Middleton in it. That’s how you know it’s British. No kidding.

Trance is in theaters March 14th.
