Choose life. Choose Facebook. Choose Twitter and Instagram. Choose taking a minute and fifty five seconds to watch the new trailer for for T2: Trainspotting, the highly anticipated follow-up to Danny Boyle and Irvine Welsh’s infamous 1996 classic.
The trailer reunites Renton (Ewan McGregor), Spud (Ewan Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) and a just-as-psychotic Begbie (Robert Carlyle) twenty years after we left them in the original Trainspotting.
As we can see from the trailer, the rumours were indeed true about Kelly Macdonald making a return too as Renton’s sharp-witted maybe-soulmate Diane.
For those of you old enough to remember seeing the original when it came out, T2: Trainspotting will be a cold stab of nostalgia, as the original film’s narcotic-seeped logic is very much back in full force.
The official synopsis reads: “Mark Renton returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie. Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.”
Catch the original gang again when T2: Trainspotting comes to cinemas on 27 January, 2017.
