Dropped by Distributor, ‘T2’ to Screen at House RCA

‘T2 Trainspotting’

BANGKOK — After it was pulled from release in March, the sequel to ‘90s cult classic “Trainspotting” will show this week at an independent Bangkok theater.

House RCA will screen “T2 Trainspotting” for seven days starting Thursday for fans in Bangkok to see.

T2 takes place 20 years after heroin addict Mark “Rent Boy” Renton returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie, who’s just been released from prison.

The full schedule is available online. Tickets are 140 baht and 100 baht for students. A 210 baht ticket includes popcorn, a drink and film poster. They can be booked via phone and the box office.

Sony Pictures Thailand originally planned to release the long-awaited sequel on March 17 in the two major cinema chains, but quietly dropped it without explanation. Angry and disappointed fans floated an online petition asking Sony Pictures to release it.

Dujdao Promobol, marketing executive director of Sony Pictures, said at a press conference on Monday that the company had concerns the film’s 18+ rating would be a drag on ticket sales.

House RCA is located on the south end of RCA near Petchaburi Road and can be reached by taxi or motorbike from MRT Phetchaburi.
