Ad of the Day: Sony, Tristar and Film 4 share a glimpse of reunited Trainspotting cast


Twenty-one years after the release of Trainspotting Danny Boyle has reunited the original cast for the sequel T2, released January 2017.

A collaboration between film studios Sony, Tristar and Film 4, the first trailer for the film sees the cast – Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle – ape the original, standing on a platform as a train rolls by. However, this time they look far more weathered.

The trailer doesn’t give much away as to T2’s plot but it does provide fans with the first glimpse of a (very, very) long-awaited sequel.
