The Trainspotting Cast are Back in this Teaser for T2

by on 25/07/2016

It has been 20 years since Trainspotting was released, I was a mere 17 years old drinking Thunderbirds and dancing away to ‘Lust for Life‘ How life has changed in that time, but may be not so much for the characters seen standing by a train track in this little teaser. To hear Iggy Pop‘s Lust for Life blaring brings back memories of a time gone by and a few hard to forget images from the original film that have stuck with me through the years.

Danny Boyle is back to direct and has brought the original cast with him. Spud (Ewen Bremner), Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) are all back and somewhat older, but it is nice to see Sick Boy’s hair colour hasn’t changed. Based on Irvine Welshes‘ sequel to Trainspotting, Porno, we find the characters paths cross again only this time the porno industry is the back drop for their story.

T2 opens in the UK on the 27th January 2017 hitting North America a month later.
