T2 Trainspotting Featurette

Earlier this year, Danny Boyle brought back the drug-addled characters of his cult favorite Trainspotting for a sequel that took 20 years to get off the ground. T2 Trainspotting caught up with Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, and Robert Carlyle as Renton, Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie at a drastically different time in their lives.

T2 Trainspotting is coming to Blu-ray and DVD next week, and in honor of the film’s home video release by Sony Pictures, we have an exclusive clip from one of the special features with director Danny Boyle sitting with his cast to talk about returning to these characters two decades later. It looks like a fascinating, casual chat.
