Ewan McGregor In Edinburgh Return For Trainspotting Sequel World Premier
Ewan McGregor is to return to Edinburgh for the world premiere of the long-awaited Trainspotting sequel more than 20 years after the original film made him a star.
The showing of T2 Trainspotting, which reunites McGregor with director Danny Boyle and original cast members Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner, will be held on Sunday January 22 at Cineworld, Fountain Park.
The stars from the original movie and Boyle are all expected to make an appearance, arriving at 5pm ahead of the film starting at 6.30pm.
T2 comes 21 years after the original film, which followed a group of heroin addicts and explored urban poverty in Edinburgh, based on the novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh. The sequel is based on his book Porno.
The trailer for the sequel was released in November and opened with McGregor's Mark Renton returning to Edinburgh to see his friends again.
Over the strains of Underworld's hit Born Slippy, which featured prominently in the 1996 film, Renton revives his bitter "choose life'' motto but with modern references - "Choose Facebook, choose Twitter, choose Instagram and hope that someone, somewhere, cares''.
He also refers to choosing reality TV, slut-shaming, revenge porn and zero-hour contracts before saying: "Choose to smother the pain with an unknown dose of an unknown drug.''
Renton's narration ends with: "You're an addict, so be addicted, just be addicted to something else. Choose the ones you love, choose your future, choose life.''
The cast and crew from the new film were seen filming at various locations across Edinburgh and elsewhere in Scotland in 2016.
In July, McGregor and Bremner were seen sprinting out of a shop on Princes Street, with Oscar-winner Boyle directing the pair as they recreated the famous opening sequence from the first movie.
T2 Trainspotting will be released in UK cinemas on January 27.
