WATCH: New Trailer for Danny Boyle’s ‘T2 Trainspotting’

T2 Trainspotting

The sequel to Danny Boyle‘s “Trainspotting” is already out across the pond, but U.S. audiences finally get to see it this March. As such, a new trailer was just released for the film, which launches in the U.S. March 17.

The official synopsis for “T2 Trainspotting” is the following:

First there was an opportunity……then there was a betrayal.

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 film has received good reviews so far, with a cumulative score of 77 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Our own Alex Arabian had the chance to review the film. He had the following to say in his review:

With no source material to adapt from, Boyle is not limited by Welsh’s work; he has more creative control with John Hodge’s (who also adapted the original screenplay) script as to which direction these characters went…

…The theme of recovery in ‘T2 Trainspotting’ goes far beyond addiction. These characters are trying to reconcile their troubled pasts. Refreshingly, Hodge and Boyle decide to delve deeper into these characters’ childhoods, accentuating their inseparable bond…

…Do not miss this masterful sequel, which expands upon the universe and adds even more layers to the wonderful story, updating the social and political commentary to the current times.

Check out the trailer for the film below.
