Trainspotting 2 Teaser

"Choose life. Choose hope. Choose faith." Production is underway now. And this is good news for fans of the original Trainspotting who have been waiting years and years and years for this sequel. Sony Pictures UK has released a short announcement teaser for Danny Boyle's T2, the sequel to Trainspotting (from 1996), and it doesn't feature any footage from the sequel because they're just starting shooting now. It's made up entirely of footage from the first movie and designed to get people excited about the fact that this one is now happening. The four main guys are back: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle. Even though it doesn't show much, give it a look and get ready for more drugs and rock.

Here's the first announcement teaser for Danny Boyle's Trainspotting 2, direct from Sony's YouTube:

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. Anyone excited?

      Do we need a comment like yours for every sequel? Nope. Even mine.
      • I think we need more questionning minds about this sequelization trend to put an end to this laziness in creativity that is plaguing nowadays cinema.

          Of course, good point. But ... You are very aware of the fact this is mostly business. And it damn works for those who profit from it. The whole thing can't be decided based on rational argument. And they, movie producers, certainly won't ask anybody reasonable what to do next. Tragic fact is that a lot of people like those sequelized trash takes. Rest of us are trying to find something good in the midst of it ...

      Nope. Would I like to see a sequel for Trainspotting, hell yeah
    • Bo
      lol...not when you didn't like the movie they are making the sequel of. In this case I didn't like the original. I thought it was a stupid mess. So I doubt I'll be giving this sequel any airtime. Besides that, I'm not a fan of Boyle's work. Any of it. I think he's a hack. But hey, that's just
      • I'm not a fan of Boyle's work either, but I liked a lot 127 hours and Sunshine ( minus its last act)
        • Bo
          I hear you, tarek...but just 'liking a lot' of 127 Hours and liking Sunshine minus its last act just about says it all. That don't cut if for me. I gotta like it Having said that, I didn't like any of 127 Hours and same with Sunshine so it was pretty easy for me. Slum dog Millionaire was just awful junk for the masses...hated that movie...did I even watch it all? Yea, probably on cable...the silly dancing and singing at the end...ugh!
          • It was a Boyle-ywoodian homage I suppose. ;D
          • Bo
            I suppose...which is why I don't care for his work or sensibilities. I hear he's a nice man,
    • Irivine Welsh wrote two sequels to Trainspotting, Porno and The Blade Artist which came out recently. porno had been out for a long time, but it seemed to take forever to get the cast back together.
      • If it's the adaptation of a book sequel, I'm fine with that, even though I'm not interested in these sequels.
  • They were filming down the road from me the other day. My friend got a picture with Spud.
    Not mad at this one at all.
  • shiboleth
    Watching the first one was a good time with my girlfriend at that time, but noting to remember the whole life. However, to go on with this means just following the profit. Not some news, I know, but you can't forget how shallow this is. I hope they won't make enough money from it ...
