Twenty years after “Trainspotting” tripped out enough people to become a modern cult classic, the first trailer for the movie’s sequel is here. Mark “Rent Boy” Renton (Ewan McGregor) is enlightened, having given up heroin ― supposedly. In typical fashion, he urges us to “choose life.” But it looks like he and his Scottish pals haven’t changed much at all.
Based on Porno, Irvine Welsh’s sequel to his original novel, “Trainspotting 2” reunites the cast with director Danny Boyle and screenwriter John Hodge. Porno is set 10 years after Trainspotting, but Boyle has said the movie will deviate from the books’ timeline. “Trainspotting 2” opens Feb. 3.
CORRECTION: An earlier headline misspelled the name of the film.
