WE’RE BACK! This is Adam Frazier and you are listening to Skull-Face Island, the official movie podcast of Geeks of Doom! As always I’m joined by the Toad to my Wet Sprocket, David Allen… and the Island’s foremost expert on vintage racquetball goggles, producer Tim Grant.
Today on the Show: We’ll discuss Jon M. Chu‘s latest film, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, as well as Danny Boyle‘s psychosexual thriller, Trance. We’ll also boot-up the Geek-O-Matic TeleFax for all the latest news on James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy and Christopher Nolan’s upcoming sci-fi thriller, Interstellar.
Finally, if you’ve been a regular listener of the show, you’ve probably noticed we’ve been absent over the past couple of weeks. Well, there’s a good reason for that – and you’ll hear all about it in today’s third segment where we talk to The Prince of Darkness himself, Satan. It looks like Hell is coming to Skull-Face Island… I’ve got a bad feeling about this.
Trance Director: Danny Boyle
Screenwriter: Joe Ahearne, John Hodge
Cast: James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson, Vincent Cassel, Danny Sapani Fox Searchlight Pictures
Rated R | 101 Minutes
Release Date: April 12, 2013
Directed by Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle, with a script by Trainspotting and Shallow Grave screenwriter John Hodge, Trance is partially adapted from the 2001 made-for-television feature of the same name by writer/director Joe Ahearne.
The psychosexual thriller stars James McAvoy (Atonement) as Simon, a prominent art auctioneer struggling with a serious brain trauma after teaming with underworld crime boss Franck (Vincent Cassel) to steal Francisco Goya’s Witches in the Air from an auction house.
Simon tries (unsuccessfully) to double-cross Franck, who returns the favor by knocking Simon unconscious with a devastating blow to the skull, wiping out any memory concerning the whereabouts of the prized painting. Simon has no recollection of where he hid the stolen masterpiece, forcing Franck to enlist talented hypnotherapist Elizabeth (Rosario Dawson) to try and pinpoint its location – but the deeper Elizabeth probes into Simon’s subconscious, the more complex (and misleading) the mystery becomes.
A new trailer has been released for Trance, the upcoming movie from director Danny Boyle.
The movie stars James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel, and Rosario Dawson, and follows an art auctioneer who helps to steal a painting worth millions, but suffers a head injury and forgets where he hid it, leading to a wild adventure through his subconscious to figure out where it is.
