‘Trance’ Poster Defies All the Usual Poster Cliches

Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle is back with a new film called ‘Trance,’ and if this official ‘Trance’ poster is any indication, we’re in for a very thrilling experience. 

Starring James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel, and Rosario Dawson, Danny Boyle’s ‘Trance’ had us interested before the first trailer and poster even hit. The official synopsis:

Simon (James McAvoy), a fine art auctioneer, teams up with a criminal gang to steal a Goya painting worth 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 line between truth, suggestion, and deceit begin to blur.

It sounds like it has the capacity to be a very cerebral and immersive experience, and this new poster would seem to corroborate that assumption, with its jarringly bright colors blocked and layered over a screaming James McAvoy. It’s definitely a daring poster, considering how generic most posters have become. ‘Trance’ hits theaters on April 5.
