We’re happy to debut four new exclusive images from Danny Boyle’s new film, Trance. This hypnotic crime thriller centers on 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 a different way.

Here’s the synopsis for Trance:
Simon (James McAvoy), a fine art auctioneer, teams up with a criminal gang to steal a Goya paintingworth millions of dollars, but after suffering a blow to the head during the heist he awakens to discover he has no memory of where he hid the painting. When physical threats and torture fail to produce answers, the gang’s leader Frank (Vincent Cassel) hires hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb (Rosario Dawson) to delve into the darkest recesses of Simon’s psyche. As Elizabeth begins to unravel Simon’s broken subconscious, the lines between truth, suggestion, and deceit begin to blur.
