Nearly five years on from learning of its arrival, we finally have our first trailer for Creation Records biopic Creation Stories.

You can find a minute-long trailer for Creation Stories below. Directed by Nick Moran, the film reunites the Trainspotting duo of Danny Boyle and Irvine Welsh, who executive-produced and scripted the new film, respectively.

Starring as label founder Alan McGee is Ewen Bremner, who appeared as Daniel "Spud" Murphy both in Trainspotting and 2017 sequel T2 Trainspotting.

The film, adapted from McGee's autobiography The Creation Records Story: Riots, Raves and Running a Label, will first premiere in the United Kingdom on February 24 as part of the virtual Glasgow Film Festival, ahead of a wider release on March 29. A United States release date has been set for March 20 through Sky Cinema.

For the uninitiated, Creation Records played a big part in the early career success of artists including My Bloody Valentine, Oasis, Slowdive, Primal Scream and more.
