Watch the New Reunion-Like Trailer for Danny Boyle's Trainspotting Sequel

It's already one of the most anticipated films of 2017 — Danny Boyle's iconic 1996 film Trainspotting is finally getting the sequel you kind of don't want to see but can't look away from.

Set to be released on February 9, T2 will apparently be loosely based on Irvine Welsh's 2002 novel Porno, which was released six years after the film of Trainspotting. And while Trainspotting was perhaps the most effective campaign against shooting up heroin (and the need to learn the dialect and slang of Edinburgh youth), T2 may well do the same for the amateur porn industry. Don't worry, there'll probably still be gratuitous drug use.

The old guard is back, with Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle reunited by Boyle, and even John Hodge, the screenwriter of Trainspotting, has worked on the film.

Here's the latest trailer, one of the more detailed we've seen pop up ahead of the film's release. Take a peek and see Mark Renton (McGregor) returning to the only place he can ever call home. Gang's all here.

T2 is in cinemas February 9.
