The original, directed by Danny Boyle and based on the novel by Irvine Welsh, came out in 1996 and starred a young Ewan McGregor. It made $16.5 million in the U.S. alone and launched the careers of McGregor and pretty much everyone else in the cast. It would even pick up an Academy Award nomination for its screenplay.From lust for life to lust for nostalgia?
If you’re having a hard time remembering how the original ended, it’s OK. Here’s a quick spoiler alert/recap of where the plot left off: Renton (Ewan McGregor) stole the £16,000 that he, Spud (Ewen Bremner), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) made from a heroin deal. Spud saw Renton leave with the money but was forced to flee the scene, too, when Begbie destroyed his hotel room in a rage and got himself arrested.
From what we can tell so far, T2 finds Renton back in Edinburgh, Scotland, trying to bury the hatchet with Spud and Sick Boy while avoiding Begbie, who has been recently released from jail.
