‘Choose your future, choose reality TV, slut shaming, revenge porn’: The hair-raising first look at Trainspotting 2 is finally here

The first proper look at Trainspotting 2 – or T2: Trainspotting – has finally arrived in the form of a hair-raising trailer that resurrects the classic ‘choose life’ monologue 20 years on.

The 1996 cult classic is pretty much untouchable, but the Danny Boyle-directed sequel looks damn good. The whole gang (minus Tommy, of course) are back in T2: Trainspotting including Ewan McGregor as Renton, Robert Carlyle as Begbie, Jonny Lee Miller as Sick Boy and Ewen Bremner as Spud.

‘Choose your future, choose reality TV, slut shaming, revenge porn’: The hair-raising first look at Trainspotting 2 is finally here. Check it out below.

The sequel is slated to be loosely based on Irvine Welsh’s follow up to Trainspotting (the book), Porno. Speaking with Vice he said T2 is “very much telling a story about Edinburgh as it currently is. The main element to the story is basically Renton, Begbie, Sick Boy and Spud getting back together again, and it tells the story of them getting involved in the vice industry in a very innovative way.”

T2: Trainspotting is set for release on January 27th in the UK, February 2nd in Australia and February 3rd in the US.
