Disney’s live action adaptation of the classic animated film Beauty and the Beast is packed with familiar actors and voices, and is as intricately decorated as the French palace of Versailles, but fails when it comes to everything else.
Choose life. Choose a book. Choose a film. Choose a sequel. Choose a franchise. Choose a universe. Choose merchandise. Trainspotting 2 thankfully doesn’t tick all of the cliche sequel boxes, but does rely on nostalgia perhaps a little too much at times.
This is just INTENSE. They’re all back! Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting is a cult classic, and in all honesty there is probably no way that it can live up to the original. But with Boyle’s directing track record which includes 28 Days Later, Sunshine, The Beach and Slumdog Millionaire, I’m pretty sure we’re in for a treat.
