I wasn’t sure at first about the return of the gang in Trainspotting 2 but after watching this first full trailer I think I am getting excited! Someone once said the more things change the more they stay the same and I think that can be said about the trailer which is why I am currently riding the nostalgia wagon at mark 8 and that’s fine by me.
After 20 years the gang are back together, those being Renton, Spud, Sick Boy, Begbie and Dian and it looks like most of them haven’t changed a bit, well, they have more grey hair I suppose.
We also once again have the iconic tune Born Slippy by Underworld, which is a little alarming as it’s almost like they are redoing the first film for the sake of selling something based purely on nostalgia. Have a watch and see what you think:
A lot of flashbacks, more drug taking and more Spud tripping the light fantastic, WIN! Apparently it’s very loosely based on Irvine Welsh’s book Porno, which was the follow up to the hugely successful Trainspotting. It didn’t quite have the same impact so let’s hope the film does better.
The new/old Trainspotting 2 arrives 27 January 2017 in the UK.
