Some great new posters have popped up online overnight, giving us fresh look at Danny Boyle’s upcoming Trance, as well as the Ryan Gosling starrer The Place Beyond The Pines and Steve Carell’s magical comedy Burt Wonderstone.
The Trance poster above is pretty cool. It’s a US promo released at the same time an April 5th American release date has been announced, although us Brits will be getting it a little earlier on March 27th. James McAvoy plays an auction house assistant who masterminds an art heist and teams up with a gang of thieves, but suffers a blow to the head and wakes up with amnesia. He is the only one who knows where the stolen painting is and after his continued failure to remember, the gang begins to suspect duplicity on his part and hire a female hypnotist (Rosario Dawson) to get into his brain.
Take a look at the Burt Wonderstone and Place Beyond The Pines posters below.
While I know Vegas magicians look a little fake and glossy, it’s a bit odd to produce a poster where you can only half recognise the main stars – Steve Carell, Jim Carrey and Steve Buscemi. Here’s the synopsis: ‘Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt’s growing ego. But lately the duo’s greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they’ve grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult followingsurges with each outrageous stunt, even their show looks stale. But there’s still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act—both onstage and off—if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.’
The Place Beyond The Pines reunites Ryan Gosling with Blue Valentine helmer Derek Cianfrance. In the film, Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a professional motorcycle rider who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son. But when he crosses paths with a rookie police officer (Bradley Cooper), their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational feud.
