Watch Ewan McGregor Talk Renton's Return And Choosing Life In 'T2 Trainspotting'
We're on the home stretch for the Trainspotting sequel cinema date. With just a few short months before the next hit, Sony have started releasing character featurettes—the first being old mate Renton.
The clip shows some new footage as well as splices of Ewan McGregor giving some intel on Renton's return. He's been in Amsterdam for 20 years, after flogging that huge bag of cash. He's no longer addicted to the hez, but is addicted to endorphines… via running… very 2016.
He returns home "broken" looking for the boys, "the only people who really know him". The text below the clip also emphasises the other old friends that are waiting for him: "sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger." But Ewan promises he isn't who you expect him to be… "He chose life."
T2 Trainspotting hits cinemas January 27 (UK), February 2 (AUS), and February 3 (US).
