Watch full t2 trainspotting 2017 online free. After 20 years abroad, Mark Renton returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie.
Shadows of past glories suffocate present endeavors in T2 Trainspotting, the long-awaited, much-delayed and disappointingly redundant follow-up to Danny Boyle’s 1996 “Cool Britannia” sensation Trainspotting. Reuniting Boyle with writer John Hodge, producer Andrew Macdonald and most of the original cast — top-billed Ewan McGregor reprises his breakthrough role of the charismatically rebellious Scottish drug addict Renton — this darkly larkish, crime-flavored character-comedy will doubtless score very big on its skillfully-hyped U.K.-and-Ireland Jan. 27 bow, but looks of niche interest farther afield.
Director Danny Boyle’s only film to crack $50 million in North America remains the Oscar juggernaut Slumdog Millionaire — his last two outings, Trance (2013) and Steve Jobs (2015), both underperformed — and T2 will do well to match the original’s haul of $16 million ($33 million at today’s prices). Opening in limited release on March 17 and wide stateside on April 7, the TriStar release will pose little threat to Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, featuring the dependably versatile McGregor as the talking candelabra Lumiere.
In the cumbersomely titled T2 Trainspotting — as in the first go-round — the “beast” is feral psychopath Begbie (Robert Carlyle), a snarling, battling-bantam incarnation of id with a Magnum moustache. The plot now largely revolves around Begbie’s desire to gain violent revenge on his former pal Renton, who at the climax of Trainspotting made off with drug-score proceeds that were meant to be split four ways.
