Next month Trainspotting, the film that introduced much of the world to Ewan McGregor (unless you’d been smart enough to first discover Shallow Grave) and kicked off the future Obi-Wan’s high gear career, turns twenty. Though Danny Boyle was hoping to release the untitled sequel this year (based on Welsh’s Porno), it looks like that’s not coming until 2017. But, we don’t have to wait to see how the boys are faring; here’s a peek at Renton, Sick Boy, Spud and Begbie to hold us over.
