Check out this new red band trailer for Danny Boyle's psychological thriller "Trance," starring James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel. The final moments surprise us with a trippy, unexpectedly gruesome image -- it's, er, mindblowing.

McAvoy plays a fine-art auctioner caught in a sticky situation. He's agreed to steal an invaluable painting for a ruthless gang of thugs, but then can't remember where he hid the looted artwork. Cassel plays the slick, ominous leader of the crime ring, and Dawson a sexy therapist whose motives may be more labyrinthine than meets the eye.

The film opens in the US April 5.

Boyle won the Directing Oscar in 2008 for Best Picture winner "Slumdog Millionaire"; his last film was 2010's Oscar-nominated "127 Hours." He subsequently focused his efforts on a stage version of "Frankenstein," and 2012's opening ceremony for the London Olympics.
