What you may need to know:
1. Danny Boyle won the Best Director Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire (2008), having given us two of the most influential motion pictures of the modern age, Trainspotting (1996) and 28 Days Later (2002). 127 Hours (2010) wasn’t half bad either.
2. Boyle is getting back to the day job after the whole Olympics thing. Word has it he turned down a knighthood the other week.
3. Trance was shot a year ago – Boyle took time out to do the Olympics, then came back and finished it.
5. He’s also dating his leading lady, Rosario Dawson (top). We love her.
6. Vincent Cassel! Always a pleasure.
8. Prognosis: Optimistic.
