Renton and Sick Boy step out for Trainspotting 2 premiere

Renton, Sick Boy and co were reunited on the red – or orange – carpet at the premiere of Trainspotting 2.

T2 Trainspotting is based on the Irvine Welsh novel Porno.

The film, which has won rave reviews, is set in the present day with the main characters – Renton (Ewan McGregor), Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner) and Begbie (Robert Carlyle) now in middle age.

Ewan looked cool and casual on the carpet, where he posed for pictures with original Trainspotting star Kelly Macdonald.
