Trainspotting 2 gets an announcement trailer

TODO alt text

After years of rumours, we're finally getting a sequel to Danny Boyle's 1996 cult-classic Trainspottting. To celebrate the occasion, an official start-of-filming announcement trailer has been released. 

Check it out below...

Although the teaser has no new footage to speak of, it does reveal that much of the original cast will be returning to their roles. The film will have a sharpish turnaround too, as its eyeing a January 2017 release date. That's good news for fans of the original, and as a fan of Boyle's work I'm interested to see how he fares with the first sequel of his career.

Directed by Danny Boyle and starring Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewan Bremner, and Robert Carlyle, Trainspotting 2 (or T2) is released in UK cinemas on January 27, 2017.
