Just place marking to find out

It opens 27 jan I think, so probably the week before. I'm also really looking forward to it.

I'm can't wait to see this. Love the film and the book (and the sequel/related books and film). I was too young to see the original in the cinema so I can't wait grin

Fairylea Fri 30-Dec-16 14:32:38

Absolutely cannot wait for this smile

NoTractorsAtTheTable Fri 30-Dec-16 14:40:37

I'm looking forward to it too - I got all excited when I could buy tickets online for the 17th, until I realised it was the first film being re-released for that night! grin

DH and I saw it back in 1996 when we'd only been going out a couple of years.

We had read the book and had seen Irvine Welsh doing a reading from it in front of about fifty people in a wee Edinburgh library. grin

DH is being a grump about it "No way it'll be as good as the original" but I'm taking him to see it whether he likes it or not, and hopefully at the same cinema where we saw the first one. smile

I'm looking forward to this one too. I hope its not a let down after the first film.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Fri 30-Dec-16 16:33:25

I can't wait either!

Chipsandonionrings Fri 30-Dec-16 16:37:14

Watched the original last night in preparation, can't wait. I had forgotten just how good and bleak it was.

Appropriate graffiti in Leith (courtesy of Reddit) grin

Some of the scenes were filmed in my workplace - my actual desk is in the film apparently!

Preens!

I can't wait to see it! The original was if my generation, guys in my friendship group all had nicknames of the characters etc even just looking at the adverts / posters for it stirs up real emotions!

Marymoosmum14 Thu 05-Jan-17 21:37:01

I can't wait for this film, I am driving my DH mad about it, we are going for my birthday. grin

Euphemia Thu 05-Jan-17 22:34:32

RJnomore1 Thu 05-Jan-17 22:59:13

If you go the odeon website you can precook now for some cinemas

Glasgow quay is one

Euphemia Thu 05-Jan-17 23:36:22

Thanks - not on sale at the Cameo in Edinburgh yet, which is where I really want to go! I'll book the Filmhouse if the Cameo doesn't release them soon.

Euphemia Fri 06-Jan-17 17:48:46

So I messaged the Cameo and whined about tickets being on sale at the other Lothian Road cinemas wah wah wah and they sent me back a link saying "Choose Cameo!". See what they did there? grin

So anyway, we're booked for the Cameo! Whoop whoop!

ButteredToastAndStrawberryJam Fri 13-Jan-17 19:53:07

I don't think there's any need for a second film. I doubt if any of them would still be alive.

Piffpaffpoff Fri 13-Jan-17 20:03:06

I can't wait for it! So many parts of the original have become in jokes between me and DH. In my old flat I had a Begbie Cupboard, because he jumped out of a similarly located one (high up) in the first film. Many houses later, DH and I still call any high cupboard the Begbie Cupboard. If the dcs are a bit over-excited andaretalkingreallyfastandcantstop, we refer to them as having gone a bit Spud. And occasionally if something has broken mysteriously, I have been known to declare 'right, some c*nt did that and no c*nt leaves til we find out which c*nt did it'. I am irrationally fond of Begbie.

DH and I went to see Irvine Welsh and Robert Carlyle do a reading and Q&A in Edinburgh last year, it was so good, if a bit 'luvvie'!

I loved the original but not sure I like the sound of this one as they all get involved in the pork industry

KinkyAfro Sat 14-Jan-17 21:30:34

Ha, porn not pork

AgentProvocateur Sat 14-Jan-17 22:14:11

Pork industry!! gringringrin

KinkyAfro Sun 15-Jan-17 12:56:06

Piggin' ridiculous grin

ButteredToastAndStrawberryJam Sun 15-Jan-17 14:56:35

I have an idea, Trainspotting 3 set in a pork scratching factory.

KinkyAfro Sun 15-Jan-17 16:15:45
