Watch Eddie The Eagle Soar In This First Trailer


Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards was a British skier who took part in the 1988 winter Olympics. His story though isn’t one of medals and victory.

Michael Edwards , better known as Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, was a real British hero during the 1988 winter Olympics. His story grew in popularity as he was a true underdog. He had no sponsorship and came last in all the ski jump events he took part in but it was this that made him so endearing.

Now his story has been bought to the big screen as played by Taron Egerton (Kingsmen) and with Hugh Jackman (X-Men, Pan) as his coach.

Title: Eddie The Eagle | Release Date US: 26th February | UK: 1st April
