As anticipation builds for the release of T2, the sequel to Danny Boyle's iconic Trainspotting, we've been blessed with another short teaser for the new film. The first short clip released back in May provided a much-needed flashback to the first movie, ending with the classic shot of the four lads on a train platform. With Iggy Pop's "Lust For Life" playing in the background, the latest 41-second teaser echoes the original, as a train passes revealing an older Spud, Renton, Sick Boy, and Begbie 21 years on and played by the original talented actors.

The film is due to release on January 27, 2017 in the UK, following a week later in the US. While you wait for T2 to appear on a screen near you, take a look at what the main cast has been up to since the original was released in 1996 and read our interview with Trainspotting's author Irvine Welsh.
