20 Years Just Flown By, Yeah? Check Out This Gorgeous New T2 Trainspotting Trailer

Not for nothing, but the stills alone in this trailer are mind-blowingly beautiful. Trainspotting 2 may boast a different cinematographer (Anthony Dod Mantle), but Danny Boyle’s eye is sharp as ever.

Gorgeous, innit?

The original film — along with Shallow Grave — was our introduction to Ewan McGregor and Danny Boyle and by gum, we’ve never forgotten either. T2 will be a lovely, nostalgic return, not just for the boys, but for all of us who ate up that double slam with the perfect pairing. I love Renton’s sage advice to Spud:  “You’re an addict, so be addicted; just be addicted to something else”. Looks like that something (he’s not done heroine in 20 years) for Mark is pure adrenaline.

T2 stars Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremmer, Robert Carlyle, Kelly Macdonald and Kevin McKidd, features an Irvine Welsh cameo, and hits theaters March 31st .

    This doesn’t get me any more excited than the UK trailer (which I’ve watched roughly forty times) because that would be impossible. Excited is really too small a word for how I feel about this sequel. I mean I still own the VHS cassette for the original and I haven’t had a VCR in over twelve years. And every single frame (THANK YOU FOR ALL THE GIFS) that we’ve seen so far just feels like home.

    Obviously Ewan is so handsome and I love him but how is Jonny Lee still so freaking luminously beautiful? Not many men could carry that ridiculous platinum hair in the nineties even and he still looks fantastic with it in his forties. I can’t wait to see this.

  • I am so unbelievably in for this. Holy shit.
