It’s been 20 years since seeing them last, but Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie return as first T2 Trainspotting trailer releases.
In this trailer, the reactions and antics of the first films protagonists are showcased after 20 years apart. Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle all return. McGregor also gives a modern take on the iconic “Choose life” monologue from the original film, while ‘Born Slippy’ by Underworld accompanies the trailer.
The sequel to the cult classic Trainspotting has been in the making for many years, with ideas for a film stretching back to 2009. In September 2015, a script had been written and Danny Boyle was on board to direct the sequel along with the main cast from the first film. T2 Trainspotting will be loosely based on Irvine Welsh’s book sequel, Porno.
“Choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and hope that someone, somewhere, cares”, as T2 Trainspotting releases in cinemas January 27th 2017.
