Danny Boyle's Trance Gets A Hardcore Red Band Trailer
The new red band trailer for Academy Award winner Danny Boyle's Trance is a pretty brutal affair. The intensity skyrockets when we watch Vincent Cassel pull out James McAvoy's finger nails, and only gets more insane from there as the editing becomes more erratic and the number of violent images increases. But as crazy and twisted as it is, I guarantee that nothing will prepare you for for the final moments.
