Out of curiosity, have any of you seen the show Nothing But Trailers on AXS TV? If you ever want to get overloaded with movie trailers I highly recommend it. It runs for 2 hours and does exactly what it says, runs movie trailers non-stop. There are commercial breaks but they’re really not that bad. I bring this up because I watched it last night and had a chance to see the new T2: Trainspotting trailer. Luckily it just hit the internet and we can share it with you today.
Trainspotting‘s Rent Boy, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie reunite in the latest trailer for Danny Boyle’s T2, the sequel to the cult 1996 film that picks up two decades after the original cult classic. What’s more is that the original “theme song” to Trainspotting is back. Iggy Pop’s “Lust for life” gives this trailer some nice movement and if you weren’t psyched to see T2: Trainspotting then you should be now.
“Choose your future. Choose wishing you’d done it all differently. Choose life,” Renton says in voiceover, a nod to the 1996 film’s inner dialogue. The trailer augment’s the first tease of the new film, which tells viewers to “Choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and hope that someone, somewhere cares.” Danny Boyle had this to say about the film
“I always thought that if these characters were asked to do a sequel, they would agree reluctantly and say, ‘All right but you have got to call it T2 so that you can annoy James Cameron.’ Terminator 2 is known as ‘T2’ but actually not legally. We can call our film T2,” Boyle said. The reason Trainspotting is added after it is because everyone books online now and online things do take you to the James Cameron film, rather than our film, so we had to concede defeat to commerce eventually.”
