Total Film has unveiled this first teaser poster for ‘Trance.’ Academy Award winning director Danny Boyle returns to the big screen with this psychological heist-thriller about a fine art auctioneer, mixed up with a criminal gang, who join forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting.  ’Trance’ stars James McAvoy (Atonement, X-Men First Class), Vincent Cassel (Black Swan, Mesrine) and Rosario Dawson (Seven Pounds, Sin City). The film is set for a March 27th release in the UK.

Fine art auctioneer Simon (McAvoy), in league with a gang led by underworld boss Franck (Cassel), plots the audacious theft of a masterpiece by Goya from a major public auction. When Simon double-crosses the gang during the robbery, Franck retaliates violently and knocks him unconscious.

In the aftermath of the heist, Simon sticks stubbornly – and perhaps shrewdly – to his claim that the violent trauma has left him with no memory of where he stashed the artwork.

Unable to coerce the painting’s location from Simon, Franck and his associates reluctantly join forces with a charismatic hypnotherapist (Dawson) in a bid to get him to talk. But as they journey deeper into Simon’s jumbled psyche the boundaries between reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur and the stakes rise faster and far more dangerously than any of the players could have anticipated.

“Trance,” directed by Oscar®-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle (“Slumdog Millionaire,” “127 Hours”) and co-written by Oscar®-nominated long term collaborator John Hodge (“Shallow Grave,” “Trainspotting”) is a seductive and enigmatic thriller starring James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson.
