Eddie the Eagle flies again! This time into the Silver Screen. A story of love and struggle that ended up in a rule change in the Winter Olympics to stop great amateur athletes like Eddie entering again!
Not only do we get the great Hugh Jackman but upcomming Taron Egerton as our hero, Eddie. We also get the great trailer and poster.
Eddie the Eagle follows the realisation of the childhood dream of Michael Edwards (a.k.a Eddie), and his unflinching determination to become Great Britain’s first Olympic ski-jumper. Reluctantly aided by former ski-jumper Bronson Peary as his coach, Eddie is unwavering in his quest to reach the 1988 Calgary Winter Games. Eddie the Eagle is an uplifting, inspirational story that celebrates human spirit, passion, and one man’s refusal to accept defeat.
