'Trance' Red-Band Trailer, Now with Additional Cartoonish Head Trauma


In the first trailer for Danny Boyle's Trance, we learned that star James McAvoy would get his head clunked real good, thus forgetting where he hid a stolen painting.

In fairness, that seems to be part of a hypnosis-induced dream sequence going on in McAvoy's head, but then what about the scene where Rosario Dawson's head explodes, but her eyes hover in mid-air blinking for a few seconds before plopping into the pile of ash resting in her neck cavity? Have a look below.
