Trainspotting 2 opens today and has been garnering great reviews from the majority of critics on this side of the pond.
As Brian points out, "legacy" sequels are always tricky; there's a reason Independence Day didn't work out and Dumb and Dumber To was never gonna live up to its predecessor.
The writer of the first book and its sequel, Porno, Irvine Welch had a hilarious note for those who were going to see the film on opening day.
T2 Trainspotting etiquette: if you think it's brilliant, please let me know. If you don't like it, tell Danny. #T2trainspotting
