T2: Trainspotting 2 Teaser Turns Up


Nothing is ever truly safe from getting a sequel or a reboot nowadays. Considering the fact that Ghostbusters received a recent Hollywood reboot, anything can be fair game at this point. And it’s not like Hollywood has to be the only one to do it either, as the teaser trailer for the upcoming British black dramedy T2: Trainspotting 2, the sequel to the award-winning 1996 feature Trainspotting, was released today.

Little is known about the feature’s plot, but director Danny Boyle has stated Trainspotting 2 would be loosely adapted from the novel Porno by author Irvine Welsh. In the book, the original characters from Trainspotting explore their later lives into the world of pornography. Actor Robert Carlyle even hinted to the power of the script by stating T2 “is going to be quite emotional for people. Because the film sort of tells you to think about yourself. You are going to be thinking: ‘Fuck. What have I done with my life?'”

T2: Trainspotting 2 is slated to release on January 27th in the United Kingdom, and February 2nd in North America. Be sure to check out the teaser trailer below and let us know if you’re excited to see the return of the Trainspotting story.
