Eddie the Eagle

"It's truly a remarkable story. If you love movies like Hoosiers, Rudy and Remember the Titans, you should see Eddie the Eagle." That's the perfect quote from Drew Brees to help sell this sports movie to the masses. Fox has unveiled their official Super Bowl TV spot for Eddie the Eagle, which is hitting theaters at the end of the month. Kingsman star Taron Egerton stars as Eddie Edwards, the titular "Eddie the Eagle" - England's first ever ski jumping athlete. The full cast includes Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken, Tim McInnerny and Jo Hartley. This Big Game-themed spot features actual football players such as Kurt Warner, Russell Wilson & Drew Brees. They're really pushing this film, and I'll still say it looks damn good.

Here's the new Super Bowl TV spot for Dexter Fletcher's Eddie the Eagle, direct from Fox's YouTube:

Eddie the Eagle is directed by Dexter Fletcher (Sunshine on Leith) and written by first-time scribes Simon Kelton and Sean Macaulay. The biopic tells the story of Eddie Edwards (Taron Egerton), the first competitor to represent Great Britain in Olympic ski jumping during the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. Trained by ski expert Chuck Berghorn (Hugh Jackman), he was a particular dark horse to achieve this placement, since he had no funding and his farsightedness forced him to wear glasses under his goggles, making him virtually blind. In competing, his placement of dead last made him a heroic failure. The film is currently scheduled to open in US theaters starting February 26th, 2016 later this month. See the international trailer. You in?

    Blonde Egerton is almost unrecognizable from his character in THE KINGSMAN.
