I'm not a massive fan of the film but I grew up in Scotland in the 90s so it was impossible to ignore. I've never seen the re-dubbed US cut, but I was under the impression that all home releases now are the international cut?

Do you have any details on the added scenes?

If it helps I've got the Criterion laserdisc which claims to be the first time that the UK version was available in the US. It has 9 deleted scenes as a special feature, as well as a hilarious Scottish slang glossary sheet.

EDIT: I just spotted this on IMDB, could this be it?

"The original UK special edition box set video was withdrawn from sale after only two days, after Polygram discovered that they had added more than the nine deleted scenes."

Program material is recorded on the other side of this disc...

Thanks for the reply
All i know is that the Trainspotting (1996) International Version - 22 added scenes, original undubbed audio, totally different from U.S. version. was being traded during the trading period.

It could be maybe this is the one i'm looking for?

Criterion laserdisc version and the canadian DVD release adds nine new scenes that were originally deleted from the film before release, showing:

additional dialogue between Sick Boy and Renton about Sean Connery and James Bond movies;
Spud talking about his friendship with Begbie;

Renton's job interview (originally intercut with Spud's interview)

Diane catching Renton, Spud, and Sick Boy while shoplifting

Renton meeting Swanney in the hospital after he's lost his leg

Sick Boy and Renton talking about Swanney in the park

Tommy discussing the virtues of Australia with Spud

Diane dumping Renton for a healthier guy

Sick Boy, Begbie, Spud, and Renton at the bus station before leaving for London.

The original UK special edition box set video was withdrawn from sale after only two days, after Polygram discovered that they had added more than the nine deleted scenes. In addition to the nine above scenes are:

Renton and Sick-boy setting up a rifle in the bushes of the park, whilst listening to the original avengers theme.

Renton laying on a stretcher in a hospital corridor, after a few moments someone tries to steal his blanket.

Renton's parents wheel him out of hospital.

Begbie arriving at Renton's London flat.

Begbie in Renton's flat talking about horse racing.

More of Spud's job interview.

Begbie, Spud, Sick-boy, Tommy and Renton arrive at a friend's, with the things they stole from the American tourist (red jacket, passport etc.). You then see the friend dressed in the jacket, sunglasses and cap trying to draw £500 on the American's credit card.

Sick-boy, Renton, Spud and Tommy on the train on their way to the countryside.

Renton dancing with his mother to culture club, at the club his parents go to.

Begbie, Sick-boy and Spud looting someone's house. Sick-boy is wearing the skull mask from the cover of the book.

Renton and Spud steal a TV from an old people's home. This is not edited together, but presented in 4 different takes, from three different camera angles.

Renton visits Swanney in hospital. Again this is not edited together, but presented in 11 different takes, from 5 different angles.

The deleted scene at the bus station begins with Renton giving a beggar some change; after Renton has moved on the beggar looks up and we see it is Swanney.

The Criterion version doesn't include the deleted scenes in the film, just as an extra. I suspect someone has used the Criterion deleted scenes along with the withdrawn VHS deleted scenes and created an kitchen sink version.
