The original 1996 movie, based on Irvine Welch's 1993 novel, defined a drug generation in the UK. With an electrifying soundtrack, a memorable group of characters and filled with moments that contributed to the pop culture of the cinema world, Trainspotting was definitely one of a kind. Not to mention a talent of a cast: Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremne and Kelly Macdonald.
Well, 20 years later... the original crew is back as Renton (McGregor) returns to his home town after "choosing life" and abandoning his misfit friends. In honour of T2: Trainspotting, we have compiled our own little list of long awaited sequels.

Harrison Ford is heard making mistakes during radio communication with air traffic control in the minutes leading up to his close call at a California airport earlier this week, when he nearly crashed into a passenger plane after erroneously landing in a taxiway instead of the runway he was cleared to use.
In newly released audio obtained by TMZ, the Star Wars legend is told his tail number, “Husky Niner Hotel Uniform,” and a personal code of 0214. However, Ford responds by stumbling over his words, telling the control tower that he was flying a helicopter rather than his single-engine plane. »

He’s outrun boulders; he’s ingeniously escaped danger a multitude of times from practically anything that moves; he’s drank from the Holy Grail; he’s defeated the Nazi’s, twice; he hates snakes and he always gets the girl. His name is Indiana Jones, and he’s everyone’s favorite audacious archeologist.
After three marvelous and valiant international adventures – Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (and another one with a nuclear-proof refrigerator for some reason) – Disney announced early last year that there will be a fifth installment to the Indy franchise, set to be released in July 2019. The plot is unknown at this time, but rumors of a younger actor like Chris Pratt or Bradley Cooper taking up the whip and fedora were laid to rest when Harrison Ford announced that Indiana Jones veteran, Steven Spielberg, »

It has been well over a year since Star Wars: The Force Awakens stormed into theaters and very successfully relaunched the franchise. While many questions from that movie have been answered, there are still a lot that remain ambiguous. For one, why were Han and Leia no longer together during the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens? It looks like the upcoming novel, Star Wars: Aftermath - Empire's End is going to explore just that, as teased by a recently released excerpt from the book.
StarWars.com recently published a brief excerpt from author Chuck Wendig's upcoming Aftermath novel, the third and final of his trilogy. While it isn't explicitly said in the text, reading between the lines, it is clear that the seeds of what would ultimately drive Han and Leia apart are in this bit from the upcoming novel.
