For  those of you — OK, the one of you — who asked about "T2 Trainspotting," director Danny Boyle's follow-up to his breakthrough film "Trainspotting," here's a surprise: It's opening Friday, May 19, in Waco.

The secondary surprise is that it's opening at discount theater Premiere Cinema 6, which every once in awhile shows a first-run film.

"T2 Trainspotting" catches up with the free-spirited characters of the original film 20 years later in their home turf of Edinburgh, Scotland, where they're older, but not necessarily wiser.

Also opening on Friday: "Alien: Covenant," "Everything, Everything" and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul."
