Eddie the Eagle is the ultimate underdog story of an athlete who never questioned himself, and a mother who always believed in him.

I have an amazing mom. She has always been my cheerleader. My support system. And I had no idea how much I would still need her to be my cheerleader and supporter as an adult. Seriously, I never would have guessed when I was younger that a 40-something-year-old woman with 5 kids (and a son-in-law on the way) would still feel like such a KID and still need her mom so much.
When I saw the trailer for Eddie the Eagle for the first time, the story really resonated with me. Although I was never an Olympic hopeful, I loved Eddie’s spirit and the faith and support from his mother. I cannot wait to see this movie in theaters!
About EDDIE THE EAGLE
20th Century Fox | In theaters February 26
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.
