As Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life" plays on the background, the four drug addicts are introduced with orange character cards reminiscent of the first film's iconic poster.

Original director Boyle is back helming the dark comedy sequel that is 20 years in the making. The original Trainspotting released in 1996 helped launch both the careers of McGregor and Boyle.
