Everybody has got that handful of movies that will always stick with them as their ‘must watch’ recommendations. For myself and a legion of die hard fans around the world, one of the movies in that handful is 1996’s Trainspotting. For the record, as much as I loved the movie, the book by Irvine Welsh is even better.
Porno is a fantastic continuation. It’s filled with the same humour, raunchiness, and adult subject matter, and it really does an outstanding job of reconnecting you with the characters that you fell in love with the first time around. Naturally, I’ve always felt like there should have been a Porno movie, so when it was announced that Danny Boyle and the original cast were reuniting for Trainspotting 2, I was over the moon with anticipation. It’s been reported that the new movie is based loosely on Porno, but all of the main characters agree that the script is top notch, and they wouldn’t have agreed to film a sequel if they felt like it didn’t capture the spirit of the original. The movie comes out early 2017, and they’ve finally released the first trailer.
