Chronicles of a silver screen addict

New T2: Trainspotting 2 teaser offers first glimpse of Renton and co.

In anticipation of its eagerly-awaited January 27th premiere, the Trainspotting has just released an exclusive teaser trailer on The Guardian. Though only forty seconds long, the new T2 teaser finally gives us a glimpse at our four main characters: Renton (Ewan McGregor), Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Johnny Lee Miller), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). The lack of Kevin McKidd’s tragic Tommy is just one of the many melancholic factors surrounding the film; twenty years on, all four men look somewhat ravaged by two decades of heroin and partying.

Though only a shot of the four men stood on a train platform (to the iconic strains of ‘Lust For Life’), excitement is building for the new film. Little is known of the plot; many have suggested T2 will draw from Trainspotting sequel Porno and Begbie spin-off The Blade Artist. Either way, with the original cast back and Danny Boyle behind the lens, it’s one to watch out for.
