It’s a weird time we live in. Not talking about the orange monster currently representing our country or that the Kardashians are still a thing (OH! Maybe they can run for President next… Like all of them! Just butt implants and Gucci bags filling the White Hours. Why the hell not!?!?), I am referring to the young and cool film makers who made hardcore “screw the man” flicks from my adolescence, are now established artists, who are making sequels to the films that launched (and for some) changed how we know movies can be made. Kevin Smith, Richard Linklater and even Love Actually got sequels (… Not from my youth, but my girlfriend made me watch it… totally didn’t dig it…). I ain’t hating these sequels and for the most part these follow-ups are pretty solid (Love Actually 2 hasn’t come out yet, but I am so excited….. I mean my wife is making go see it… lame…RIGHT!?!?). Clerks II and Everybody Wants Some are awesome follow-ups to classic films. Well Danny Boyle has taken notice and decided to give us a follow-up to his light heroin romp Trainspotting. T2: Trainspotting brings back the whole cast of the original and Boyle is gonna show us what the gang has been up to in the last 25 years. I’m sure it’s been nothing but apple picking and brunches… Well if you are a fan of the original and live in the Metro-Detroit area you are in luck! We got our hands on some early passes to check T2 out next Tuesday, March 21st in Royal Oak, MI at the Main Art Theater. Click the link below and use the code T2SJP to claim your tickets. As always it’s completely free, all we ask is to do the whole like and share thing on social media if you can! Enjoy and remember SJP loves you!
