T2 Trainspotting had already been screened in London last week for film critics, who have since had their say on the belated sequel. Read the NME review of the film here.

T2 Trainspotting, which is based on Irvine Welsh’s sequel book Porno, will be released on January 27 in the UK and on February 3 in the US.

Welsh has recently hinted that a third film in the series is also a possibility. “I think there’s probably room for one more kind of Trainspotting-themed film. You never know what’s going to happen with these things,” he said.
