Black comedy drama sequel directed by Danny Boyle. Twenty years have gone by and much has changed but just as much remains the same.

Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance.
Best Quotes from Trailer:
[Renton enters the bar where he sees Sick Boy playing pool]
Sick Boy: Hello, Mark. What have you been up to…for twenty years?
Renton: [voice over] Choose life. Choose Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and hope that someone, somewhere cares. Choose looking up old flames, wishing you’d done it all differently. And choose watching history repeat itself. Choose your future. Choose reality TV, slut-shaming, revenge porn. Choose a zero-hour contract, a two hour journey to work, and the same for your kids, only worse, and smother the pain with an unknown does, of an unknown drug made in somebody’s kitchen. And then, take a deep breath. You are an addict, so be addicted. Just be addicted to something else. Choose the ones you love. Choose your future. Choose life.
Spud: Missed you, mate.
Renton: I missed you too, Spud.
Diane: Do you still take heroin?
Sick Boy: Hello, Franko.
Francis Begbie: Simon. I’m old.
Sick Boy: Call the police.
Niki: What shall I say?
Sick Boy: Just tell them we’re dead.
