Video: I've never actually watched Trainspotting and I'm not sure if it needs a sequel 20 years later, but I do think it's kind of cool that there's so many shots and scenes from the sequel that looks exactly like the shots and scenes from the original movie. Candice Drouet spotted the similarities in the recently released trailer for T2: Trainspotting and stacked them against the first film to show how much has stayed the same.

Trainspotting was one of the defining movies of the 1990s. Riding on the twin, hip waves of chart-topping brit pop and guys-talking-smack (pun intended), it helped shape '90s cinema -- arguably '90s culture - and catapulted Danny Boyle, Ewan McGregor, Johnny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle to stardom. (Sorry, Spud.) Now, the whole gang is back for the sequel; T2 Trainspotting. Here is the official trailer.
