"Choose life. Choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and hope that someone, somewhere cares."

Sony Pictures have recently released their latest trailer and quad poster for Danny Boyle's freshly re-monickered Trainspotting (1996) sequel T2 Trainspotting.

Soundtracked by the iconic house beats of Underworld's Born Slippy and Wolf Alice's Silk, the trailer reunites Spud (Ewan Bremner), Renton (Ewan McGregor), 20 years older but not a day less psychotic Begbie (Robert Carlyle) and Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller). Not to mention their old friends heroin and cocaine.

As rumoured, Kelly Macdonald is back and prominent as Renton's potential soulmate Diane. For anyone old enough to remember seeing the original at the cinema it is a straight hit of nostalgia, with plenty of the first film's narcotic dream logic in evidence. We are quietly relieved they didn't stick to the Terminator sounding T2 title, too.

Runs the synopsis: "Mark Renton returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie. 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."

Refamiliarise yourself with the gang when T2 Trainspotting 2 arrives in cinemas on 27 January.
