Get Inside The Warped World Of Trance
With Danny Boyle as your guide

Danny Boyle’s latest, the brain-scrambling hypno-thriller Trance, will be with us soon. To tempt anyone still confused by the concept, the filmmakers have knocked up a new set of websites to guide you through it, with the main one featuring a guided tour by Boyle himself. But don’t worry – he steers clear of spoilers.

That official site is a trippy blend of site and featurette, featuring Underworld man Rick Smith’s ambient audio soundtrack and a wealth of little featurettes about elements of the movie, including Rosario Dawson’s mysterious therapist Elizabeth.

Then there are two even stranger sites, based around the idea of remembering and forgetting, each also boasting blips of Smith’s score and a blizzard of visuals (we’d caution that they feature a lot of strobe work).

Trance, of course, focuses on an art heist, during which inside man Simon (James McAvoy) either appears to forget where he stashed the stolen artwork or is cunningly keeping that information from the villain who masterminded it, Vincent Cassel’s violent Franck. Naturally, Franck tries every method at his disposal to “help” Simon remember, but finally turns to Elizabeth for hypnotherapeutic help. Yet what she unearths in Simon’s mind may not be the truth…

Trance
is set to arrive on March 27. And you can read more about Boyle and McAvoy in the current issue of Empire, in shops and on the iPad now.
