Red Band Trailer: Danny Boyle’s ‘Trance’ | CS
Poster: ‘Trance’ | Coming Soon
The film is set for limited release April 5
Trailer: ‘Trance’ - March 27 (UK)
Directed by Danny Boyle, starring James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel, Rosario Dawson
The plot seems a little contrived and albiet I’m not the biggest fan of Rosario Dawson, but when you’re in Danny Boyle’s hands there’s no reason to worry. And the color palette alone has me wanting to buying a ticket.
Deadline reports that Boyle will shoot Trance, which is about “an art heist gone wrong” and has the same “dark, sexy, hard-edged tone” of Boyle’s early films Shallow Grave and Trainspotting. Boyle plans to shoot the film this September in London.
Directed by Danny Boyle. Starring James Franco, Kate Mara, Lizzy Caplan.
Based on the true story of Aron Ralston, who got himself trapped under a boulder and had to rescue himself and walk 80 miles to safety. Is that what we just saw the trailer for? I’ve got a bad feeling this trailer is a bit deceptive.
The amount of action and adventure in the trailer must not let on how dark and dramatic this film is probably going to be. Also interesting, the clear similarities in story to Ryan Reynolds’ upcoming Buried but the stark differences in trailer presentation and tone.
Another point of interest and deception (and SPOILER ALERT), the linear nature of this trailer is not indicative of the movie, which the press release will tell you is told through flashbacks.
Nevertheless Boyle manages to tell these amazing stories of perseverance and survival, this is no different. Fall has some solid pictures on the way.

Another keenly-anticipated fall film has been given a release date: Fox Searchlight will open Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours on November 5. That’s well in time for the film to make an impression on awards voters. I don’t even want to get into speculation about whether Boyle can repeat the success he had with Slumdog Millionaire. I just want 127 Hours to be good. The early buzz we’ve heard suggests that it could well be a solid effort.
127 Hours is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued.
The Oscar-winning director of Slumdog Millionaire Danny Boyle, and Billy Elliot director Stephen Daldry, have been tapped as creative bosses of the London 2012 Olympics. Stephen Daldry will be in overall creative charge of the Olympics and Paralympics, while Danny Boyle will be artistic director of the main opening ceremony. Boyle, whose new version of Frankenstein opens at the National Theatre later this year, said that he wanted to create a “thrilling, enthralling and captivating evening”. Orson Welles once described moviemaking as the greatest train set a boy ever had. The Olympics seem even more so.
