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.
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 .
