The first trailer for Trainspotting 2 is here – watch it now.
Initially an Irvine Welsh novel, and then an award-winning play, Trainspotting's film adaptation placed a searing hot poker on the flesh of 90s decadence.
Launching the careers of its cast – Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Kelly MacDonald et al – it became an instant classic.
Irvine Welsh would, of course, write numerous novels expanding on this universe, and they have become the foundation for Trainspotting 2.
Toasting its 20th anniversary by going right back to the start, Trainspotting 2 finds the characters growing older, but perhaps not wiser.
The first trailer is online now, and it features plenty of sex, drugs, violence, and 'Born Slippy'. Exciting times…
Trainspotting 2 will be released in 2017.
