It’s been 20 years since Danny Boyle arrived with a bang and hit the jackpot with Trainspotting. And now he’s back with T2 – Trainspotting 2 teaser with the original cast and characters – Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, and Jonny Lee Miller.
Trainspotting 2 is loosely based on the sequel of the same novel Trainspotting – Porno. While we would have loved it if the same name was retained for the film, we’ll let this one disappointment pass for a bigger cause. We just don’t care. We are super excited to see Spud, Renton, Sick Boy and Begbie, and nostalgia has taken over our minds and hearts. In fact, not much is really happening in the first teaser for the sequel of the 1996 cult classic Trainspotting. Just the sight of the cast on orange background is enough to set our hearts racing with impatience and anxiety.
The 40-second teaser leverages its heritage value, with Iggy Pop’s Lust For Life (Remember Trainspotting’s iconic track) blasting out. The boys are busy setting themselves against the orange poster – that became so famous that it has adorned hundreds of walls over the past 20 years. For those of you who haven’t seen Trainspotting – make your life worthwhile. Watch it like RIGHT NOW!
Trainspotting 2 hits theaters on January 27, 2017. That is quite a long wait, indeed.
