After 20 years abroad, Mark Renton returns to Scotland and reunites with his old friends Sick Boy, Spud, and Begbie.
Danny Boyle has credited David Bowie with helping to be able to use various hit songs in the original movie inexpensively because he had ties with Lou Reed and Iggy Pop, and helped Boyle out because he was a fan of Shallow Grave (1994). For his own little personal tribute to him following his death, Boyle decided to shoot a moment where Renton goes through his record collection and finds a couple of Bowie's albums. (In the novels, Renton is a fan of Bowie).
I've come up with a title.
In the original movie, Mark puts up half of the £4K required to purchase the Russian skag from Mikey Forrester, so he would only owe the other 3 a share of £8k from the £16k sale (the proportion of the "4 way split" of the haul wasn't specified in the original).
The initial final credits appear over modified scenes of tower blocks and other buildings being demolished. Once the cast credits appear, the background changes to amorphous, swirling, mainly black/ white/ grey shapes.
