"No piece of art is worth a human life" — or is it? In director Danny Boyle's upcoming thriller Trance, James McAvoy stars as Simon, an art auctioneer who steals an important painting only to forget where he's put it after being hit in the head. Franck (Vincent Cassel) and his gang of criminals are on Simon's case, so he turns to psychotherapist Elizabeth (Rosario Dawson) in an effort to remember. Little does he know that she's working for Franck, and she claims that once Simon is hypnotized, she can make him do anything.
Trance seems to have all the fixings of a suspenseful thriller: blood, sex, sweat, and a whole lot of violence. The therapist-working-for-the-criminal twist may be a bit simple, but with Oscar-winning director Boyle at the helm, we're guessing it'll be a fast-paced film with plenty of surprises. Trance opens on April 5, and you can see the full trailer when you read more.
