Why We Love Danny Boyle

Whilst the average cinema-goer is no doubt aware of his name, the typical movie buff is most likely familiar with some of Danny Boyle‘s work. His most successful film is Slumdog Millionaire, but he’s also done various other films in the past, including Trainspotting, Sunshine and 127 Hours. He’s not the most prolific of directors, but when he makes a film it is certainly worthy of attention.

This brings us to the recent Trance trailer. Trance, of course, is the latest film by Danny Boyle. Straight away, there are various themes and similarities that make this instantly recognizable as a ‘Boyle movie’. It can easily be argued that all of Boyle’s films have had a strong human and emotional theme. Whilst the likes of Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting are prime examples, even Sunshine focuses on the human and emotional aspects of a more unusual situation; the same goes for 127 Hours.

James McAvoy Pulls off a Heist in First Clip from Danny Boyle’s Trance

James McAvoy is a master thief in Danny Boyle’s “Trance”, a remake of a British movie that I don’t think anyone outside of the UK has seen. You won’t be able to say that about this version of “Trance”, though, not with Boyle’s name attached. After all, this guy made the movie about the fella who cut off his own arm after getting it stuck in a bolder watchable. Dude’s talented. Check out the clip for yourself below. Try not to use what you’ve learned here to pull off an actual robbery, though. Danny Boyle won’t be there to help you with slick camerawork and whatnot.
