Danny Boyle’s ‘Trance’ Will Warp Minds On Blu-ray This July

trance whysoblu posterTrance hit theaters in limited release this past April and won me over (review HERE).  As a big fan of Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and his constant decisions to make every one of his films wildly different than his last in terms of plot, despite having a very distinct style, I enjoyed seeming him take a stab at making a neo-noir with the concept of hypnosis being a major factor.  The movie had some issues, but I overall dug it thanks to Boyle’s direction, the film’s soundtrack (always a positive in Boyle films), and the core cast that includes James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson, and Vincent Cassel. On July 23, everyone will have a chance to check out Trance, as that is the date the film’s Blu-ray hits shelves everywhere.  Read on to learn more about this upcoming release.

From ACADEMY AWARD®-Winning director Danny Boyle* (Slumdog Millionaire) comes an “exhilarating brain-twister” (New York Post)! After a blow to the head during his attempted robbery of a $27 million Goya painting, Simon (James McAvoy, X-Men: First Class), a fine-art auctioneer, awakens to find that the painting – and his memory – are missing. Forced by his ruthless crime partner Franck (Vincent Cassel, Black Swan) to undergo hypnosis, Simon enters into a deadly love triangle with his seductive hypnotist (Rosario Dawson, Sin City). As the plot twists, the line between reality and dream becomes blurred in this fast-paced, unpredictable, “sexy and suspenseful” (Empire) thriller.
