Rosario Dawson, James McAvoy in Danny Boyle's 'Trance': First pictures

By
The first pictures from Danny Boyle's latest movie Trance have been released.

The heist thriller, which stars Rosario Dawson and James McAvoy, centres on an art auctioneer drawn into a theft at his gallery.

After a blow to the head, McAvoy's character Simon suffers a bout of amnesia and forgets where the priceless painting - Goya's Witches in the Air - is stored.

Dawson's hypnotherapist Elizabeth is then hired by the gang leader (played by Vincent Cassel) in a bid to locate the artwork.

Boyle told USA Today of the project: "I wanted to do an updated noir, give it a contemporary spin in terms of emotion.

"Noir is usually cold. I wanted it to be more emotionally charged. It's the first time I put a woman at the heart of a movie."

Trance sees Boyle reunited with his Trainspotting and Shallow Grave screenwriter John Hodge. It will also be the Oscar-winning director's first film set in London since 28 Days Later.

Boyle helmed the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony this summer and recently worked on a stage adaptation of Frankenstein, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Jonny Lee Miller and Naomie Harris.

Trance is due for release in the UK on March 27, 2013.
