A still from the trailer.

Titled simply T2: Trainspotting, the film picks up 20 years after the original leaves off, as we find out what these heroin addicts have been up to.

The trailer says:

Twenty years have gone by.
Much has changed but just as much remains the same.
Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to the only place he can ever call home.

They are waiting for him: Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle).

Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.

The trailer is titled ‘Legacy’, and combines shots of the original ’96 Trainspotting with clips from the upcoming movie as well as reviews in a montage just under two minutes long.

The ‘Legacy’ trailer opens with a shot of Renton walking into his childhood room, before the iconic music (Iggy Pop’s Lust For Life) kicks in.

The film is out in April 2017 and here is the trailer:

The second film is based on Irvine Welsh’s follow-up novel, Porno. The movie takes place 20 years after the original, and sees the gang reunite over the backdrop of the homemade pornography industry and of course, drugs are involved.
