15 February 2017 9:39 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Off to the races with a strong box office reception in the U.K., “T2 Trainspotting” is making a pit stop at the Berlin Film Festival, before coming to North America. But if you’re eager for that lust for life spirit just a little bit early, these clips from the movie should do the trick.

Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) are reunited decades following “Trainspotting,” where friendships are renewed and old wounds are still festering.

Review: ‘T2: Trainspotting’ is a Nostalgia-Heavy, Melancholic Sequel

10 February 2017 12:22 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Something happened at my midnight public screening in London of Danny Boyle’s sequel to his 1996 smash. A heckler at the back, perhaps influenced by alcohol or the fact that he had been ground down by the film’s incessant flashbacks and reminiscence, aimed at the screen and shouted “nostalgic shite.” And that half-sums up T2: Trainspotting, a movie whose advent looks only to have been beckoned by fans’ longing to see the original film’s gang back together. Still, I mean half when I say it, and Boyle’s verve as a director means there’s still plenty of vibrant imagery, alongside a script that, although lacking any of the electricity of the original’s state-of-the-nation wisecracks (“Scotland is a nation colonized by wankers”), is funny and disarmingly melancholic.

The first film’s breakout stars Ewan McGregor, Johnny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, and Robert Carlyle all return, and »

Per the film’s official synopsis, “Did Renton really start a family, buy a car and a washing machine as he proclaimed at the end of Danny Boyle’s successful cult film? Or how else did he spend the 16,000 pounds he stole from his friends following their heroin deal? These may be the questions we ask ourselves twenty »

T2 Trainspotting: Nostalgia Trip

5 February 2017 10:16 PM, PST | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Minor Spoilers

Like any film with an extended period of time between the original and sequel(s), T2: Trainspotting (2017) is required to form an immediate connection with its audience. Twenty years have passed, yet we must feel accustomed to this world. For every element of change, something else must remain the same. We take comfort in what we know; it allows us to enjoy the new without fear of the unknown. If T2 had been released a couple of years after Trainspotting (1996), it could potentially have been set in Benidorm. Transplanting our anti-heroes from Scotland to Spain is fine when they are fresh in our conscious mind, but twenty years later we need a way back. In T2 this is achieved by location (still in Leith, Edinburgh), music and costume. Not much has changed in this respect, and what has we probably expected to.

Costume designers for T2 are Rachael Fleming, »

Go behind the scenes of T2 Trainspotting with this exclusive featurette

3 February 2017 1:51 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

It was a triumphant return for Danny Boyle and the Trainspotting boys last week. Jumping back into the world of Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie was a real treat, and the film was able to harness the strange rush of emotions, for audience and players alike, to create something hilarious, dangerous and moving.

Seeking out his old stomping ground, Ewan McGregor’s Renton returns to the place he once called home, and it was a similar return north of the border for Danny Boyle. In this new exclusive featurette Boyle talks about that return, and how it enhanced the message of the film.

You can find all of the interviews with the cast and crew from the World Premiere right here, read our review of T2 Trainspotting here, and look below for the new featurette.

Film Review: ‘T2 Trainspotting’

2 February 2017 5:22 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

How do you make a sequel to a film that defined a generation, a whole generation later? Do you define that generation anew, through thicker bifocal lenses, or do you pass the baton to a younger one? Both are valid approaches. Neither is quite the one taken by “T2 Trainspotting,” a shinily distracting but disappointingly unambitious follow-up to 1996’s feverish youthquake of a junkie study, which reunites its quartet of older, none-the-wiser Edinburgh wretches to say simply this: Middle-aged masculinity is a drag, whether you’re on smack or off it. As a fan-service exercise, Danny Boyle’s itchy, antic caper just about passes muster, reassembling “Trainspotting’s” core ensemble, soundtrack cues, and even its seasick camera moves for two hours of scuzzy nostalgia. Yet it largely passes up the opportunity to update the original’s caustic social snapshot of contemporary Britain — a region itself currently preoccupied with the rearview mirror, »

‘T2 Trainspotting’ Review

2 February 2017 2:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Anjela Nedyalkova, Kelly Macdonald | Written by John Hodge | Directed by Danny Boyle

20 years on, the idea of a sequel to a film that was so entrenched in a time and place in modern British history might seem like folly. And while it’s not as bad as it could have been, T2 Trainspotting (as it’s clunkily named) struggles to find a personality or a cultural relevance of its own. It tries hard – too hard – and ends up being a cover version as dodgy as the remixes that dominate its soundtrack.

First we find a middle-aged Renton (Ewan McGregor), running on a treadmill. Still running. Always running but getting nowhere. He’s living in Amsterdam, but he’s drawn back to Edinburgh. There, Spud (Ewen Bremner) has barely moved on. The clocks changed for British summertime and he got confused »

Blood, guts and fireballs: the day I took two bullets at Trainspotting's SFX studio

29 January 2017 7:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A stabbing for T2, a blazing station for Hot Fuzz, a bus blown up for The ForeignerArtem are the go-to pyromaniacs for British films. Our writer gets sliced up and shot at

Perivale Industrial Park. I get a demonic thrill from starting a piece with those three words, like I’m daring you to go and read something else. But if you can hang around for five more minutes, there are some men in the car park and they’re just about to blow up a tiny house. This industrial park is home to Artem, a special-effects company run by Mike Kelt and staffed by a gigantic team of dedicated sculptors, pyromaniacs and wound fanatics.

Their Usp right now is that they did the special effects for the second Trainspotting film, T2. Later, I intend to try on Robert Carlyle’s fake stomach with a hospital drip coming out of it. »

T2 Trainspotting: Cast Says It Won’t Make Sequels Just for Money

It’s been over 20 years since fans were first treated to Danny Boyle’s classic movie Trainspotting that followed the lives of three heroin addicts and their creepy criminal friend.    It was the big break of Ewen McGregor that launched his career as well as the careers of Robert Carlyle and Jonny Lee Miller.  It was also the movie that truly put Boyle on the map as a director.  Now, in 2017 T2: Trainspotting has finally hit the theaters.  And while the movie has only been out for a day, people have already been talking additional movies.  But the cast has

T2 Trainspotting Review

27 January 2017 9:05 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been twenty years since Ewan McGregor’s Mark Renton strolled across Waterloo Bridge, £16,000 stolen from his best friends slung over his shoulder, explaining that he was going to “choose life.” Now, he’s back and it’s time to see if he lived up to his words in the awkwardly named T2 Trainspotting.

Danny Boyle’s 1996 Trainspotting was one of those rare films that perfectly encapsulated its time and place. It arrived just as John Major’s Conservative government was gasping its last fart and Tony Blair was promising us that “things could only get better,” as Britpop exploded into a frantic burst of coke-fuelled creativity and people started excitedly blathering on about ‘cool Britannia.’

Renton returns to a very different Scotland, one reverberating from its failed bid for independence from the UK, paranoid about the impact of Brexit and gradually crumbling under economic austerity. The country isn »

Trainspotting 3 teased by Robert Carlyle

23 January 2017 10:20 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jan 24, 2017

Robert Carlyle suggests that chatter is already underway about a possible Trainspotting 3....

This Friday, just over 21 years since we last saw them on the big screen, Renton, Sick Boy, Spud and Begbie return. As played by Ewan McGregor, Johnny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Robert Carlyle, they are, of course, the core cast of Trainspotting. And they’re back on screen in T2: Trainspotting, for original director Danny Boyle.

The gang really is all back together, too. An Irvine Welsh novel – Porno, in this case – has provided the basis of the story, and it’s been adapted by John Hodge, who picked up an Oscar nomination for the first movie.

Robert Carlyle: Trainspotting 3 could be on the way

Talking at the Edinburgh premiere of T2 Trainspotting, the actor revealed that he’d been in talks about continuing his character Begbie’s story

Robert Carlyle has suggested a third Trainspotting film may be on the way after saying he’s been “talking about that” with producers.

Carlyle, who plays hardman Franco Begbie in 1996’s Trainspotting, as well as its soon-to-be-released sequel T2 Trainspotting, was speaking to reporters before T2’s premiere in Edinburgh. “We’ve been talking about that, I am up for doing it,” he said. “So maybe we ain’t seen the end of Begbie just yet.”

Movie Review – T2 Trainspotting (2017)

23 January 2017 6:06 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

T2 Trainspotting. 2017

Directed by Danny Boyle

Starring Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, Anjela Nedyalkova and Kelly Macdonald.

Synopsis:

Set two decades after the 1996 cult hit, T2 Trainspotting sees the original foursome reunite as middle-aged men in Edinburgh, grappling with their past demons and present failures.

Nostalgia and money can be a hazardous combination in the film business, especially when it comes to sequels. While some follow-ups have genuinely added value to the story, many others have tarnished those beloved memories of the original. Fortunately, fans of Trainspotting can relax because Trainspotting 2.0 – or to give its official title, T2 Trainspotting – is an experience worth indulging in.

After 20 years away from home, a middle-aged and sober Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to Edinburgh to escape his crumbling marriage in Amsterdam and, perhaps subconsciously, to face the demons of his youth. He’s soon reunited with Spud (Ewen Bremner »

Last night, Edinburgh saw the stars of T2: Trainspotting (Trainspotting 2) attend the world premiere. It may have been a cold night but it didn’t stop hundreds of fans attending the star-studded event.

It’s been 20 years since the original Irvine Welsh novel was turned into a movie and saw the likes of relatively unknown actors Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremner, Kelly Macdonald and Jonny Lee Miller all take to the screen helmed by the one and only Danny Boyle at the directing helm.

In those 20 years, a sequel to the movie has been attempted but have never come to fruition but now is the time for that sequel to land and we’ve been very excited for a long time.

Robert Carlyle teases a Trainspotting 3 at T2 premiere

Trainspotting 3 movie plans already? Could The Blade Artist be the next book to head to the big screen with Robert Carlyle?

Robert Carlyle lined up with the rest of the cast at the T2 Trainspotting world premiere in Edinburgh last night, and while all concerned were firmly concentrated on celebrating this Friday’s release of the much applauded sequel, thoughts also turned to other potential instalments in the series. Carlyle spoke about the changes in his iconic character of Begbie in T2, but also touched on potential plans to bring him back for a new film too. Could a Trainspotting 3 movie already be on the way?

“That is the first time you see maybe there is another side to this guy,” he said to The Telegraph newspaper in the UK. “He’s capable of feeling something more than just rage, so I’m pleased that that element of Begbie has been shown. »
