“Choose life. Choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram… and hope that someone, somewhere cares.”
Set to the haunting opening notes of Underworld’s Born Slippy – which somehow doesn’t seem to have aged since 1996 – the iconic Trainspotting voiceover has been given a #firstworldproblem update for the highly anticipated sequel to the cult movie.
The official trailer to Danny Boyle’s upcoming second instalment of the gritty Britflick has landed and it’s fast-paced and intriguing. Starring most of the original cast, Ewan McGregor (who has also aged rather well) and Robert Carlyle make a return to reprise their roles as Mark Renton and Begbie, while Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Johnny Lee Miller) and Diane (Kelly Macdonald) also make an appearance.
Based on Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh’s literary sequel Porno, the writer hinted that the gang would find a ‘very innovative’ way to get involved in the adult movie industry. Trainspotting 2 will be released on January 27, 2017 in the UK and February 3 in the US. Watch the full trailer below via Youtube.
