T2 Trainspotting set to grace NZ screens

T2: Trainspotting is finally making its way to New Zealand, having premiered in Edinburgh a month ago.

The movie occupies a special place in the hearts and careers of the cast and in the minds of film fans worldwide.

It kicked open the door to the careers of many of the cast and crew.

There's been pressure to do the original and the sequel justice. It premiered in Scotland first and will open in New Zealand on February 23.
