Ok, so it’s only a short teaser but it’s still worth your time, if for no other reason than to relive the nostalgia. If you haven’t seen Trainspotting (and you’re over 18), stop reading this now and give it a watch. Unless you’re at work, that could be awkward. It’s been 20 years since director Danny Boyle introduced everyone’s favourite drug addicts Spud, Renton, Sick Boy and Begby to the big screen. The original movie was based on Irvine Welsh’s bleak yet funny book of the same name. Even though T2 is based on the book’s sequel, it looks like they’ve been reluctant to use the same title – Porno. It could make googling the title a bit tricky.
I love what they’ve done with the music but what they’re going to do with the characters… still remains be seen. With the original cast, director, screenwriter and source returning for another hit I’m excited to see what they’ve been up to for the last couple of decades. If you can’t be bothered to watch the movie or need a trip down memory lane, do yourself a favour and check out the opening sequence below. Warning, contains drugs, swearing and a bald Ewen McGregor:
