Trance, James McAvoy
While he’s been talking up the film all over the place over the past week, Danny Boyle’s mind-fuck thriller “Trance” doesn’t arrive in theaters until next month. If you’ve already heard some of Rick Smith’s score and still need something to hold you over until April, three new clips from the film have arrived online that are sure to make the wait even more unbearable.

Not only can Vincent Cassel move seamlessly from blockbusters to indie films while keeping a foot firmly in foreign cinema, but he does so in a manner that's always compelling to watch. And the past few years speak to the diversity of roles he's been taking, whether playing a famed gangster in the two-part "Mesrine," bringing psychological strain to Natalie Portman in "Black Swan," taking a part in the nervy "Our Day Will Come" or even putting James McAvoy through the wringer in Danny Boyle's upcoming "Trance." But before we see him do that, Cassel will don the cloak for "The Monk."

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.

Since it was first announced at the beginning of the year, we haven't really heard all that much about Christoph Gans' "Beauty and the Beast." But the mere fact that the helmer behind "Silent Hill" and "Brotherhood of the Wolf" is taking on the classic fairy tale with none other that Vincent Cassel and Lea Seydoux in the lead roles intrigues us. And now, with filming gearing up, a few more interesting tidbits about the movie have emerged.

In Ursula Meier’s “Sister,” the talented Lea Seydoux plays Louise, a complex maternal figure to a young boy named Simon (Kacey Mottet Klein). Though most know the beautiful, wayward Louise as Simon's older sister, she regularly leaves him alone without a parent, finding affection in the arms of a man and leaving the boy to make ends meet hustling stolen skiing goods. Seydoux had hesitations about playing such an upsetting character, and as she told us in an interview this week, she initially found the character, “Cruel. She’s completely selfish.”

For a director as fearsomely original as David Cronenberg, he's hasn't necessarily shied away from sequels, they just haven't come to fruition. He penned a remake/reboot of "The Fly" for 20th Century Fox, although the studio scrapped it, and more recently, it looked like he was actually going to make the long-talked about "Eastern Promises 2," a sequel to his 2006 gangster picture, with original writer Steven Knight again penning a script, and Viggo Mortensen and Vincent Cassel both set to return.

Over the last five years or so, reports have kept cropping up of a relatively unlikely sequel: a follow-up to 2007's gangster thriller "Eastern Promises," which was directed by David Cronenberg, and starred Viggo Mortensen as a heavily tattooed low-level Russian mobster who helps a nurse (Naomi Watts) protect a baby targeted by the criminals, including his near-psychotic pal (Vincent Cassel). Given that the film had a slightly-too-neat twist whereby it was revealed that Mortensen's character was actually an undercover FSB agent, it was certainly set up for a follow-up, and recently, both Cronenberg and his star have both said that there's a script that they like, and that they were keen to make the film.

As you already know, fairy tale films are the new hot thing. We've already had "Red Riding Hood" test the waters, and this year we'll see "Mirror Mirror" and "Snow White and the Huntsman," followed by "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" and "Jack The Giant Killer" in 2013. While those are all interesting for various reasons, this latest announcement has shot a new fairy tale movie right to the top of our list.
