T2 Trainspotting World Premiere

It may have been cold in Scotland on Sunday, but that didn’t stop the beautiful city of Edinburgh playing host to the T2 TRAINSPOTTING World Premiere.

The city looked stunning as the lights were lit and the cast and the creators of the new movie hit the red carpet for the world premiere – 21 years after the first instalment TRAINSPOTTING hit the big screen. In attendance was Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle and many other cast members who were joined by the film’s director, Danny Boyle

Take a look at their red carpet interviews in the video players below.

TriStar Pictures acquired worldwide rights to Danny Boyle’s much-anticipated sequel. TRAINSPOTTING 2 is based on characters created by Irvine Welsh. It will reunite director Danny Boyle with screenwriter John Hodge and all of the principal cast of the 1996 film: Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Robert Carlyle will reprise the iconic roles of Renton, Sick Boy, Spud and Begbie.


Producers on Trainspotting 2 are Andrew Macdonald, Danny Boyle, Christian Colson, and Bernie Bellew through Figment Films, Decibel Films, and Cloud Eight Films. Film4 is also a production entity.

First there was an opportunity……then there was a betrayal. Twenty years have gone by. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor) returns to the only place he can ever call home. They are waiting for him: Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle).

Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.
