I recently shared a look at the new inspiring 20th Century Fox film, Eddie the Eagle. Today I am excited to share two new film featurettes and fun reader giveaway.
Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael “Eddie” Edwards (Taron Egerton), an unlikely but courageous British ski-jumper who never stopped believing in himself – even as an entire nation was counting him out. With the help of a rebellious and charismatic coach (played by Hugh Jackman), Eddie takes on the establishment and wins the hearts of sports fans around the world by making an improbable and historic showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics. From producers of Kingsman: The Secret Service, Eddie the Eagle stars Taron Egerton as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never say die attitude

I haven’t seen Eddie the Eagle as of yet, but critics are already calling it “easy to love”, “inspirational movie of the year”, and “charming”. Knowing that the film is inspired by true events, makes Eddie’s story that much more sweet. I’m really looking forward to seeing it.
