First Real Teaser Trailer for Danny Boyle's Sequel 'T2: Trainspotting 2'
Yes! Get ready. The first real teaser trailer for T2: Trainspotting 2, Danny Boyle's sequel to his 1996 cult hit film Trainspotting, has arrived online. They've been filming for the last few months, and we posted an "announcement" teaser back in May, but this is the first time we get to see any real footage. The four main guys are back: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle. This teaser recreates the iconic scene from the original film where the four of them show up on the platform after the train passes, and we get to see how much they've aged in 20 years. Sadly, there's no other footage than that, but I'm glad they're starting to embrace the hype surrounding this sequel. And it'll be out in less than a year.
Here's the first real teaser trailer for Danny Boyle's T2: Trainspotting 2, originally from The Guardian:
Discussing the sequel in 2013, Danny Boyle stated: "This has been a long time coming. There's always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2… The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to make sure you don't disappoint people." The sequel is based on the book Porno by Irvine Welsh, featuring a screenplay adapted by John Hodge. Production is just underway now, with a release planned for early 2017. "It's not about trying to cash in on the original. It lives in the shadow of the original to a degree but in a really interesting way, which I can't really tell you about." Stay tuned for more updates. T2: Trainspotting 2 is scheduled to open in the UK in late January, then arrives in US theaters starting February 3rd, 2017.
