'Trance' release date and trailer
British director Danny Boyle’s next film will be Trance, a project he made quickly with James McAvoy before he directed the 2012 London Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony. The film has reportedly earned a March 2013 release date in the U.K., but there’s no word on when exactly it could hit U.S. theaters.
According to The Film Stage, Pathe, which will release the film in the U.K., will release it on March 27, 2013 across the pond. It is expected to get a spring release in the U.S. in 2013.
The film is described as having the “dark, sexy, hard-edged tone” of Boyle’s earlier films like Shallow Grave and Trainspotting, which were co-written by John Hodge, who also worked on Trance.

James McAvoy wants to be Gandalf in Tolkien prequels
Scots actor James McAvoy has revealed that he would love to play Tolkien’s wizard Gandalf.
Gandalf is one of the main characters in The Hobbit, which follows the adventure of Bilbo Baggins.
The role was played by Sir Ian McKellen in Peter Jackson’s screen adaptations of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
It was been reported that McAvoy would like to play the role if any prequels are planned.
The X-Men: First Class star said he has a great knowledge of Tolkein’s work and he discussed the possibility of appearing in something adapted from Tolkien anthology The Silmarillion.
He told Total Film: "It's a collection of poems and songs that chart the ancient history of Middle-earth.
“My true geek is coming to the fore, but they're really, really beautiful stories.
"In part of that is the genesis of Gandalf, or Mithrandir, or Stormcrow, or any of his many, many names. Anyway, maybe that's the one!"
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is currently out in cinemas and is top of the UK box office.
