20 years after the release of the iconic ’90s movie Trainspotting, Danny Boyle has reunited core cast Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewan Bremner, Kelly Macdonald and Robert Carlyle. T2, the long awaited sequel, will catch up with the lives of Renton, Sick Boy, Spud, Diane and Begbie two decades after the first film. Incredibly, all the characters have survived 20 years!

Writer/director Danny Boyle was quoted last year as saying that he’d always wanted to do a Trainspotting sequel, but wanted to leave it long enough for the characters to be interesting. The first film, based on the novel by Irvine Welsh, was an iconic piece of ’90s pop culture. Its orange hued poster hung on the walls of many a student, and the introduction of characters with a freeze frame and their name flashing up has become a convention of many movies since.

The trailer, which was released this morning, got over 8,000 hits on YouTube in its first hour of being uploaded, with fans keen to see how the boys are coping with life in their 40s.

T2 Trainspotting is due for release 27th January 2017
