When we attended a Danny Boyle panel at the South by Southwest Film Festival last month, they played a kind of highlight reel before the it began, with clips covering his film career to date. As they flickered by, it was hard not to be impressed – this is a man who has won an Oscar for Best Director and one for Best Picture and yet, when you see images from "Trainspotting" or "Sunshine" or "127 Hours," you can't help but feel like he's still underrated. His newest movie, a twisty, turny, deliciously sexy thriller called "Trance," just opened in New York and Los Angeles, and will be expanding in the coming weeks across the country.

He might have had a rockier patch in the mid-'00s -- no one saw his delightful fable "Millions," and sci-fi "Sunshine" was both a commercial disappointment and the most difficult shoot of his career -- but things couldn't have gone much better for Danny Boyle in the last few years. "Slumdog Millionaire" was a global hit and an Oscar sensation, winning a golden statue for Boyle himself, while follow-up "127 Hours" was equally well-received, and picked up another Best Picture nod. Furthermore, he oversaw the triumphant opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, a glorious, inventive and moving pageant that cemented his status as a beloved national hero. So where could he possibly go from there?

In Danny Boyle’s latest genre-bending effort, “Trance,” film noir is fractured into a multi-layered crime narrative with lush, angular cinematography, and -- of course -- an allegiance-shifting femme fatale. As American hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb, who guides art auctioneer Simon (James McAvoy) toward the repressed location of a stolen painting pursued by gangster Franck (Vincent Cassel), actress Rosario Dawson impeccably holds the last of those aspects.

If one thing seems to be clear about Danny Boyle's "Trance," it's that it might mess up your mind as much as it does its lead character, an auction house worker who gets caught up in an art heist gone very wrong. "...a head-spinning, psychologically rich take on the crime flick," we said about the movie in our A-grade review and now another peek at the thrills Boyle is bringing has dropped.

Director Danny Boyle was in a peculiar and unlikely situation with his upcoming mind-bending heist movie "Trance." He was able to see the film until months after he shot it, because the movie wrapped, with Boyle going on to work on the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. He then picked up with what had been shot more than six months later. "We didn't anticipate [the advantage to editing after the fact] at the time and there's always a danger that it's not favorable," Boyle said. "We were very lucky to do it. Most filmmakers don't get a chance to put a film on ice. I was a bit concerned... but when we went to go watch the rough cut after the Olympics, it was like, weird. I couldn't remember what was coming next."

The last time we saw the talented and beautiful Rosario Dawson at the multiplex, it was unfortuantely in the Kevin James vehicle "The Zookeeper." Since then, she's done a string of indies -- "10 Years" and "Hotel Noir" perhaps the most notable -- but she's heading back toward the mainstream in 2013. She's currently lensing the highly anticipated sequel, "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," she leads Danny Boyle's spring thriller "Trance" (more on that in a second) and now she's booking a gig in a very promising drama as well.

Speak of the devil. Not 24 hours ago, rumors swirled that Danny Boyle's upcoming enigmatic thriller/heist movie "Trance" had scored a March 2013 release date. While that hasn't been totally confirmed yet, USA Today has delivered some first-look photos from the film. "Trance" reunites Boyle with screenwriter John Hodge, who has written four of his films, including "Shallow Grave" and "Trainspotting," and it also marks a first for the filmmaker: the story centers on a female protagonist. Rosario Dawson is taking on that role.
