Sony just released the first teaser trailer for "T2: Trainspotting" (not to be confused with "T2: Judgment Day"). It's heavy on teaser, light on trailer, just letting a train pass to reveal four of the original "Trainspotting" stars: Ewan Bremner (Spud), Ewan McGregor (Renton), Jonny Lee Miller (Sick Boy), and Robert Carlyle (Begbie). They're back! Director Danny Boyle, who directed the first 1996 film, is also returning for the sequel, which comes out in the U.S. this February 2017.
It's hard to tell just from looking at that boy band lineup, but it's possible one or two of them really did choose a job.
The first movie was adapted from the novel by Irvine Welsh; Welsh also wrote a follow-up called "Porno," so there was long thought that they might adapt part of that book for a sequel film. John Hodge, who wrote the first script, also wrote the new script, which follows the characters 20 years after the events of "Trainspotting."
Fans have been following filming in Scotland since May:

Back in December, when the sequel was officially announced through Sony's Tri-Star, Danny Boyle added, "It's been 20 years since we met these characters and John Hodge's screenplay brilliantly explores what's happened to them — and to us — in the intervening years."
Find out what happened to them in February.
