Anyone remember the 1988 Winter Olympics? That was the year Eddie the Eagle became famous. He wasn’t very good, but he was England’s best ski jumper. His story is fascinating. And if you want to know more, then you are in luck. Thanks to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, I’m giving away an Eddie the Eagle Blu-ray on my blog. The film was inspired by true events, and stars Taron Egerton and Hugh Jackman. Eddie the Eagle is available now on Digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 14th.
Eddie the Eagle Synopsis
Taron Egerton co-stars alongside Academy Award Nominee Hugh Jackman in this high-flying, feel-good story inspired by true events. Egerton plays Eddie “The Eagle” Edwards, 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 (Jackman), the lovable underdog wins the hearts of fans around the world by making an unforgettable showing at the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.
