Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service) co-stars alongside Hugh Jackman (Pan) in Eddie the Eagle, a high-flying, feel-good story inspired by true events.

Eddie1_optEgerton 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.

Though the critics seem to have liked the biographical comedy-drama, the film floundered at the domestic box office, grossing a tepid $15 million during its release to theaters in February

Regardless, the DVD and Blu-ray come with the following features:

  • Let The Games Begin: Soaring with Eddie the Eagle Documentary
    • All or Nothing: The Hero’s Heart
    • An Unlikely Friendship: Eddie & Peary
    • Attitude is Altitude: Filming the Ski Jumps
  • Still Gallery
