It has been over 20 years in the making – and completely worth the wait if you ask me – T2 Trainspotting, the sequel to Danny Boyle’s 1996 black comedy Trainspotting, is in cinemas now. To celebrate, we’re giving away a copy of the soundtrack and a copy of the screenplay from the film’s writer John Hodge.
The first film, based on the book by Irvine Welsh, became a smash hit upon its release, putting director Danny Boyle’s name on the map and ushering in a new wave of British independent cinema. It was known particularly for its striking imagery, jet-black humour and iconic soundtrack. T2 does not aim to replicate the sensation of the first film, instead returning to the beloved characters of Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie after 20 years, where we find them all in sticky situations.
The new soundtrack features a re-worked version of Iggy Pop’s Lust for Life by The Prodigy and a remix of the iconic Born Slippy by Underworld, as well as new additions from Wolf Alice and Young Fathers among many others.
