Trainspotting 2 has a brand new trailer, and from the looks of things this Danny Boyle long-gap sequel certainly has potential to be as good as the original. This one has a subtitle “Legacy,” which has to do with the flashback opening no doubt.
Check it out:
First there was an opportunity……then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle). Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.
It’s great that everyone is a) alive, and b) back to make Trainspotting 2. And what’s most comforting is the fact that Danny Boyle is directing again. Always a plus. It sure feels like T2 will capture some of the magic of the original but in a different, more mature way, given the advanced age of our central characters.
Trainspotting 2 will hit theaters in the U.S. March 31.
