It’s not often that we see 20 years go by between the release of an iconic film and its sequel.

But that’s exactly the case with Trainspotting — a film that was largely responsible for catapulting its star Ewan McGregor and director Danny Boyle to heights of cinematic royalty. Its recently-released sequel, T2 Trainspotting, was written by John Hodge (who won a BAFTA for the original) and features a return of many of the characters who were so famously down-on-their-luck in the original. Even the cult classic’s famous “Choose Life” monologue has gotten a 21st century update: “Choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and hope that someone, somewhere cares.” It is rumored that McGregor cried when he saw the sequel for the first time. facebook.com/T2TrainspottingMovie
