The trailer for Trainspotting 2 is out: it’s so Edinburgh

They really like Arthur’s Seat

The trailer for the long-awaited  ‘T2: Trainspotting’ dropped today and it’s filled to the brim with Edinburgh.

The sequel to Danny Boyle’s legendary ‘Trainspotting’ has been filming all over Edinburgh in the past year – including at some more surprising locations.

The 1996 original notoriously did most of its filming in Glasgow. This time round it looks like we’ll be getting a lot more genuine Edinburgh.
