"Choose life, choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and hope that someone, somewhere cares."
Danny Boyle has reunited Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle for his sequel to the cult 1996 film 'Trainspotting', and while the trailer may feel familiar in the beginning thanks to the updated voiceover and Underworld’s classic ‘Born Slippy’, this is a very different beast altogether.
Here's the official synopsis:
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.
'T2 Trainspotting' is set for release in Irish cinemas on January 27th, 2017.
