Danny Boyle’s first project since vanquishing Lord Voldemort at the London Olympics involves an art heist and hypnotherapy. Naturally.

In the Slumdog Millionaire director’s new feature, Trance, James McAvoy plays an art auctioneer who teams up with a hypnotherapist (Rosario Dawson) to recover the location of a painting that goes missing during an attempted robbery. French actor Vincent Cassel plays the baddie in charge of the heist. Romance, intrigue, and thick foreign accents abound.

Watch the trailer below:

Trance marks the sixth collaboration between director Boyle and screenwriter John Hodge. The two have previously worked together on Shallow Grave (1994), Trainspotting (1996), A Life Less Ordinary (1997), Alien Love Triangle (1999), and The Beach (2000).
