Eddie The Eagle Trailer & Poster Released
We’re very excited to see Taron Egerton who starred in one of our favourite films of 2015 Kingsman: The Secret Service back on the big screen for his next lead role as Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards. And a brand new trailer and poster have just been released with an exciting first look at footage from the new film which also stars Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) as coach Bronson Peary. Check them out below!
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.
Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) stars as Eddie and Hugh Jackman (Wolverine) as coach Bronson Peary. The film is directed by Dexter Fletcher (Sunshine on Leith) and produced by Matthew Vaughn (Kingsman: The Secret Service) alongside Adam Bohling, David Reid, Valerie Van Galder and Rupert Maconick.
Eddie the Eagle is joined by a supporting cast that includes Jo Hartley (‘This Is England’), Tim McInnerny (‘Blackadder’), Keith Allen (‘Robin Hood’), Iris Berban (‘Rosa Roth’) and Rune Temte (‘The Last Kingdom’), Christopher Walken (‘Catch Me If You Can’) and Jim Broadbent (‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’).
Eddie the Eagle soars into cinemas on 1st April 2016.
