It’s been 20 years since Trainspotting. All the original cast members are back. Thank goodness they didn’t replace anyone, because I doubt it would have been the same. Trainspotting 2 will be the most nostalgic throwback film of 2017, even the trailer uses a throwback to Renton’s classic ‘Choose Life’ speech but adds a modern twist.
By the looks of the trailer we’re getting a more stylish look, perhaps this means we’re loosing some of the gritty cinematography from the 1996 original but with Danny Boyle back at the helm I’m sure it will be amazing none-the-less. The premise looks equally insane, the soundtrack equally urban and we get a shoutier Robert Carlyle back as Begbie.
There is no doubt that this film will make money, a lot more than its predecessor’s 4.7 million. January 27th; mark it in your calendars.
