James McAvoy is a master thief in Danny Boyle’s “Trance”, a remake of a British movie that I don’t think anyone outside of the UK has seen. You won’t be able to say that about this version of “Trance”, though, not with Boyle’s name attached. After all, this guy made the movie about the fella who cut off his own arm after getting it stuck in a bolder watchable. Dude’s talented.

Check out the clip for yourself below. Try not to use what you’ve learned here to pull off an actual robbery, though. Danny Boyle won’t be there to help you with slick camerawork and whatnot.

A fine art auctioneer mixed up with a gang joins forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting. As boundaries between desire, reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur the stakes rise faster than anyone could have anticipated.

Also starring Rosario Dawson, Vincent Cassel, Danny Sapani, Wahab Sheikh, and Sam Creed.

Entrancing you this April 5, 2013.
