Eddie the Eagle Trailer

Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton Fly High in the Trailer For Eddie the Eagle

Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton star in Eddie the Eagle, the inspiring true story about British Olympic ski-jumper Michael "Eddie the Eagle" Edwards. The Kingsman: Secret Service actor plays the farsighted, inept, nonathletic Eddie, and Jackman takes on the role of his whiskey-swilling — yet encouraging — trainer who whips him into shape for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. This isn't the first time an Eddie biopic has been attempted, and the real-life Edwards has noted it's only 10 percent accurate. Still, judging from the clips of Jackman in '80s-style high-waisted jeans and spiky hair, it's definitely going to be worth a watch. See the film when it lands in theaters on April 1, 2016.
