‘T2‘ is the long-awaited sequel to 1996’s groundbreaking, iconic, internationally acclaimed masterpiece Trainspotting, directed by Danny Boyle and based on the novel by Irvine Welsh. Boyle and Welsh have reunited for the sequel, as have all the original cast members, including ROBERT and SHIRLEY who reprise their roles as Begbie and Gail.
Based on Welsh’s 2002 novel Porno, T2 is set twenty years after the previous film, when Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to Scotland to make amends with his friends Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), whilst avoiding ROBERT‘s psychopathic Francis “Franco” Begbie, who has recently been released from prison. The film includes remixed and updated versions of two of the original songs that helped make Trainspotting such a hit – Iggy Pop’s Lust For Life and Underworld’s Born Slippy – as well as a brand new iconic soundtrack that includes Queen, Blondie, Run DMC and Frankie Goes To Hollywood.
Go see this awesome film on the big screen this weekend and you’re guaranteed a riotous, nostalgia-filled trip down memory lane as you discover what happened to all your favourite characters, and whether ROBERT‘s Begbie will finally get his revenge!
