We’ve got our hands on a first preview clip of Eddie the Eagle, the upcoming sports drama movie starring Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman:
Eddie the Eagle – I’m going to be an Olympic Ski Jumper!
“The film follows the realization of the childhood dream of Michael Edwards a.k.a Eddie (played by Taron Egerton), and his unflinching determination to become Great Britain’s first Olympic ski-jumper. Reluctantly aided by former ski-jumper Bronson Peary (Hugh Jackman) 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.”
His parents don’t look much excited about their son’s newfound interest in ski jumping, lol!
The film is directed by Dexter Fletcher.
Release date: February 26, 2016.
