Fuck Oscars, let’s look at some new movies!
Today amidst the hubbub, the trailer for Danny Boyle’s Trance slipped out, and WOW. This had to be one of the most visually dynamic-looking films promised in some time. The boldly colored, media-mixing, gorgeous style that Boyle seemed to uniquely refine with 127 Hours looks absolutely fabulous when applied to a full-on psychological thriller.
I’ve read in places that this is actually Rosario Dawson’s films, but they’re selling it heavy on McAvoy. I have to assume those other reports were mistaken. Everyone looks great though, with Cassel making a great… villain? I honestly have no idea who the bad guy would be here, and it looks like the tone between all of them shifts wildly throughout the story.
This hits the UK on March 27th. No US date yet.
