Danny Boyle’s ‘Trance’ violent red band trailer released – watch

Graphic promo contains blood, violence and a shock ending

The red band trailer for Danny Boyle‘s Trance has been released – you can watch it below.

The graphic promo for the hypnotic heist movie starring James McAvoy contains blood, scenes of violence and an incredibly brutal shock ending – you have been warned.

Trance is Danny Boyle’s first feature-length film since 2010’s 127 Hours. The Oscar-winning director has enlisted the help of McAvoy, Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel to tell the story of an art expert at the centre of a heist.

After receiving a blow to the head shortly after the heist that wipes his memory of the event, McAvoy is under pressure from Cassel’s mob to find the Goya painting he stashed away. The trailer below shows the fine art auctioneer, played by the Scottish actor, turning to a hypnotist (Dawson) to help cure his amnesia and recover the famous artefact before Cassel resorts to more violent means.

Trance will open in UK cinemas on March 27 and in the US on April 7.

Meanwhile, James McAvoy will reprise his role as a young Charles Xavier in the next instalment of the X-Men franchise. Titled X-Men: Days Of Future Past, the movie is due to begin filming in April.

McAvoy will also appear in the big screen adaptation of Irvine Welsh‘s novel Filth. The actor plays the role of a drug-addicted, sex-obsessed Scottish police officer whose current murder case fails to compete with his personal hang-ups and idiosyncrasies.
