Danny Boyle Avoids Mind Games at ‘Trance’ Bow

Danny Boyle Avoids Mind Games 'Trance'

Fox Searchlight thriller debuts in London

Fox Searchlight’s “Trance” had its bow on March 19 in London, where helmer Danny Boyle revealed that despite the mind-trickster pic’s subject matter he’d never succumbed to hypnosis.

“I don’t know whether I’m relaxed enough!” Boyle joked. ”It might take too long – hours and hours.”

Stars James McAvoy and Rosario Dawson joined Boyle in Leicester Square, both keen to chat about their pic-based romance.

” ‘Trance’ is a heist movie, it’s a psychological thriller – and it’s a menage a trois,” revealed McAvoy, who’d double-booked his night, bailing post red carpet to star as Macbeth on the West End.

Dawson stuck around to discuss her role as the pic’s femme fetale, a role requiring plenty of flesh-flashing.

“The scariest part was walking!” Dawson quipped, then she kidded a bashful McAvoy. “I’m looking over at James, and he’s not looking at me at all. He’s looking at a spot on the wall.”

The dwindled talent then stepped into the Odeon West End for indoor warmth and the screening.
