Tomorrow, Major League Baseball will celebrate its annual Jackie Robinson Day, and all players and umpires will wear jerseys with the number 42, which Robinson, the first African-American player in the MLB, made famous. Don’t be surprised if the execs at Warner Bros. join in on the fun. The studio did have a grand slam weekend, after all.

Warner Bros.’ new baseball drama 42 topped the box office with $27.3 million — far ahead of recent baseball titles like Moneyball ($19.5 million debut) and Trouble with the Curve ($12.2 million). In fact, 42 scored the best ever debut for a baseball film, surpassing The Benchwarmers‘ $19.7 million bow. 42 also became the latest release to earn a rare “A+” CinemaScore grade, signifying exemplary word-of-mouth among ticket-buyers. Former “A+” releases include The Help, Tangled, The Blind Side, Titanic, and A Few Good Men. READ FULL STORY

Catching up with James McAvoy on his big year, 'X-Men' and the possibility of a 'Wanted 2'

He earned our respect in The Last King of Scotland, he stole our hearts in Atonement, and he made us fans for life in X-Men: First Class. So what is James McAvoy, the blue-eyed Scotsman, up to now?

Other than starring in Welcome to the Punch, a British cat-and-mouse thriller that’s currently in theaters, McAvoy also stars in April 5th’s Trance. Danny Boyle’s latest directorial project, Trance follows McAvoy’s Simon, a less-than-trustworthy art auctioneer who suffers amnesia and then undergoes hypnotherapy to try and remember the whereabouts of a painting he helped to steal. The result is a mental thriller that will have you questioning just about everything within the world of the film. READ FULL STORY

'Trance' trailer: Rosario Dawson wants to help

Close your eyes, sit back, and let Rosario Dawson’s soothing voice guide you through the recesses of your memory.

The third trailer for Danny Boyle’s (127 Days) upcoming art-heist thriller Trance (in theaters April 5) might be the shortest and the vaguest of the bunch, but that’s just because this one is more concerned with teasing the action than the set up. In the film, Simon (James McAvoy), an art auctioneer, gets mixed up with the wrong people in an attempt to recover a missing painting, including hypnotherapist Elizabeth (Dawson), and Franck (Vincent Cassel), an art criminal. But this is no Ocean’s Thirteen François Toulour-style dandy thief. Franck is pure evil, and clearly not afraid to get his hands dirty.

We’re feeling a little spoiled with two James McAvoy trailers in one day, even though he looks ever so slightly more distressed in this one. The trailer, which first premiered on Apple, is below.

James McAvoy's eyelids are getting heavy in new 'Trance' clip -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Trance

James McAvoy and Rosario Dawson star as hypnotized and hypnotist in Danny Boyle’s mind-bending new film, Trance, due out in April. McAvoy plays an art auctioneer embroiled in an intense art theft scandal and is forced to dig deep into his memories to find the missing masterpiece.

The Oscar-winning director (Slumdog Millionaire) famously cast Ewan McGregor in several of his films, including discovering him for Shallow Grave and continuing to work with him in Trainspotting. So is the Scottish McAvoy the new McGregor? Boyle stressed to EW when we caught up with him at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas, that he didn’t think of McAvoy as “another Scottish actor” until others pointed it out to him.

The film shot in Britain while Boyle was working on the London Olympics opening ceremony, and he cast Dawson in the female lead role. Boyle stressed that Trance is one of the first films where he’s created a female lead with as important a role as the men in the film.

In the clip below, Dawson is in a session with McAvoy while Vincent Cassell and his band of assailants listen in. It may seem that this clip gives away quite a bit, but Boyle isn’t worried about audiences learning too much about his film before entering the theater — speaking for himself, at least, he says he gets “movie amnesia” — forgetting major plot points once the movie begins, spoilers be damned.

Those of us who love Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle’s movies, filled with the type of eye-zinging visuals that flood your brain, will be happy to hear Fox Searchlight is releasing Boyle’s newest film Trance in theaters on April 5, 2013.

Starring James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) as an art auctioneer who teams with a criminal gang to steal a Goya painting, then after a blow to the head has no idea where he hid it, the movie also stars Rosario Dawson as his hypnotherapist and handsomely rogue-ish Black Swan star Vincent Cassel as the gang’s bad-guy leader.

Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours director Boyle helmed the movie from a script by longtime collaborator John Hodge. And if the film’s colorful, fragmented poster and trailer are any indication, the movie has some Freud-worthy, consciousness-shattering twists up its sleeve.
