“What you been up to…for 20 years?” Mark (Ewan McGregor) is asked by Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) as it opens, a self-reflexive acknowledgement of how long viewers have been waiting for this. “T2” is based on “Porno,” novelist Irvine Welsh’s 2002 sequel to “Trainspotting”; unlike the book, it takes place two decades later rather than a mere nine years. Ewen Bremner, Kelly Macdonald, Robert Carlyle, James Cosmo and Shirley Henderson are all slated to appear in “T2” as well.
