A new red-band trailer for Danny Boyle’s Trance is now available. The crime-thriller stars James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) as Simon, a criminal mastermind behind an art heist who develops amnesia and forgets where he stashed the goods. The mob boss, played by Vincent Cassel (Black Swan), is none too happy with this and resorts to torture to get his information. Rosario Dawson (Sin City) also stars as a hypnotist who attempts to jumpstart Simon’s memory in another way. This trailer certainly earns its red-band status with a combination of bloody torture, sex and violence and looks to be another Boyle classic.
Trance will open on March 27th in the U.K. and April 5th in the U.S. Hit the jump to watch the new red-band trailer.

Here’s the official synopsis for Trance:
TRANCE, directed by Oscar®-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and co-written by Oscar®-nominated long term collaborator John Hodge (Shallow Grave, Trainspotting) is a seductive and enigmatic thriller starring James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson.
Fine art auctioneer Simon (McAvoy), in league with a gang led by underworld boss Franck (Cassel), plots the audacious theft of a masterpiece by Goya from a major public auction. When Simon double-crosses the gang during the robbery, Franck retaliates violently and knocks him unconscious.
In the aftermath of the heist, Simon sticks stubbornly – and perhaps shrewdly – to his claim that the violent trauma has left him with no memory of where he stashed the artwork.
Unable to coerce the painting’s location from Simon, Franck and his associates reluctantly join forces with a charismatic hypnotherapist (Dawson) in a bid to get him to talk. But as they journey deeper into Simon’s jumbled psyche the boundaries between reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur and the stakes rise faster and far more dangerously than any of the players could have anticipated.
