20 years on from the original film, the first official trailer for Trainspotting 2 has been released.

Titled, T2 Trainspotting, the film features the original cast of the 1996 movie, including stars such as Ewan McGregor returning as Renton and Robert Caryle as Francis Begbie.

Set to be released January 27th, 2017. Trailer

Directed by Danny Boyle, the trailer features Renton’s famous ‘choose life’ speech. This time putting a spin on the original speech, Boyle adds a reflection of modern society into it – “Facebook”, “Instagram” and “zero-hour contracts”.

The trailer features heavily on Renton’s use of Heroin as he reignites his old tricks and nudity is not amiss either.

The soundtrack for the trailer includes Wolf Alice’s ‘Silk’, alongside Underworld’s classic tune, ‘Born Slippy’.

Will it live up to the original?
