Trainspotting 2 Gets US Premiere Date

US fans will be getting a US premiere date soon after the UK premiere date for the cult hit movie sequel Trainspotting 2.

Trainspotting 2 became an instant hit with the fans back in 1996 when the movie revolved around the four very drug addicted friends embarking on a journey across the city of Edinburgh. The story was somewhat criticized for glamourizing drug addiction but director Danny Boyle said that the movie matter was too casual to be bothersome and the movie played to earn a stellar $72 million on a $3.5 dollar budget, according to Screenrant

Over the years the movie has become a cult hit among fans for its open content and tweaking into subject matters that are realistic. Irvine Welsh’s novel of the same name delivered the concept for the script so Boyle thought that his follow up novel Porno should also be adapted into a feature film and that’s why twenty years later, the cast, director, writer and production are returning to give us the gang including Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie. Based on Porno, this movie will follow-up on the character’s lives when Renton returns to Scotland after several years as a nightclub owner in Amsterdam. The story sees Sick Boy, Spud and Renton embarking on a pornography venture as the latter does his best to stay out of Begbie’s way to avoid a violent confrontation.

Boyle admitted that the cast Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle had reservations about returning but they were all satisfied with the script and agreed to film T2. A teaser trailer for the movie was released recently and contained clips from Trainspotting reminding us of some of the most iconic scenes from the movie including Ewan McGregor emerging from a toilet. 

The official release date for the movie has been set at 27th January, 2017 in the UK. This left the US audience thinking about when they will get to see the movie. They got their answer soon as EW confirmed that the movie will have a limited release in the US on February 3rd before getting a wider release on February 10th.
