20 years on and T2 Trainspotting is back with the same brilliant ensemble. Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Robert Carlyle and Jonny Lee Miller are once again united by the Oscar-winning director by Danny Boyle in the follow-up sequel loosely based on Irvine Welsh's novel 'Porno'.
In this follow-up film, we see Renton return to Edinburgh to be reunited with the original cast in the same brilliantly clever story. Not much has changed, except Sick Boy has swapped cocaine for Heroin and is running his aunt's pub; Spud is dealing with the consequences of a lifetime of drug abuse and Begbie has expanded his waistline after a stint in prison.
Guaranteed to be a stunning follow-up and in cinemas nationwide from January the 27th, this is a cultural hit not to be missed!
