Danny Boyle's Trainspotting coming to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

Lionsgate Films has announced that the dark comedy/ drama TRAINSPOTTING, from director Danny Boyle and starring Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Kelly Macdonald and Ewen Bremner, will be released on Blu-ray September 13, 2011. The film follows Renton (McGregor) a guy deep into the drug scene in Edinburgh but is trying to get out and clean up despite the allure of the drugs and influence of friends.  When the film opened back in 1996 it pretty much tanked at the box office, but since has turned into a cult classic that put Danny Boyle on the filmmaking map.

I’ve heard a lot of great things about TRAINSPOTTING but have never actually watched it. Now that it’s coming to Blu-ray in September I guess I’ll have no excuse and will definitely have to pick it up and give it a go. Special features include:
