The team behind the film that defined an era return for this thrilling, equally iconoclastic sequel
After 20 years, Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) finally returns home to Edinburgh and reunites with his old pals Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) and the psychopathic Begbie (Robert Carlyle). But there's plenty of unfinished business to be dealt with… With its wild kinetic energy, Danny Boyle's adaptation of Irvine Welsh's controversial bestseller 'Trainspotting' exploded onto the big screen 21 years ago. An often shocking black comedy following four self-destructive Scottish lads on a seemingly never-ending bender, it was the most influential British film of the '90s. Fans cried out for a sequel. Now it's finally here, reuniting director Danny Boyle and screenwriter John Hodge with the original cast. Based in part on Irvine Welsh's novel 'Porno', this exhilarating ride finds our aging anti-heroes struggling to choose life in a brave new world of zero hours contracts and social media.
