Unofficial Trance Shots Up Online
Boyle and McAvoy head for amnesia

If there's no rest for the wicked, there's not a heck of a lot for national treasures either. Danny Boyle has segued from the National Theatre to a new thriller, Trance, set in the London art world via the small matter of the Olympics opening ceremony. We hope he squeezed a holiday in somewhere along the way.

Here are some unofficial on-set stills from the film showing a battered-looking James McAvoy in action, probably pining for something more relaxing like, we don't know, Wanted. They've been hiding out in a corner of the web for a while now but have just come to light

The shoot wrapped before the Olympics but this is a first glimpse of a scenario that sees McAvoy helps orchestrate an audacious heist that ends in chaos and confusion. He gets concussed and big bad Vincent Cassel calls in a hypnotist to extract the whereabouts of the loot from his subconscious. Sounds like a job for Dom Cobb.

Look out for Danny Boyle's return to the big screen in the first half of 2013. More on Trance as we get it.

Have you forgotten its name?
Well is it called Trance or Heist? Make up your minds. Come on, Empire. This is basic fact-checking/proof-reading. You're supposed to be better than this. More
