EDDIE THE EAGLE

eddieeagle

In Theaters February 26

Cast: Taron Egerton, and Hugh Jackman

 

Inspired by true events, Eddie the Eagle is a feel-good story about Michael “Eddie” 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 (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.  Eddie the Eagle is produced by the team behind Kingsman: The Secret Service and stars Taron Egerton as Eddie, the loveable underdog with a never say die attitude.

____________________________

In this comedy of betrayal, award-winning UK comedian Mark Thomas tells the true story of how he discovered a good friend and fellow activist was actually a mole sent by Britain’s biggest arms manufacturer, BAE Systems, to spy on the comedian.

Using interviews from friends, colleagues, activists and journalists, Cuckooed is a personal and timely tale on the impact of betrayal, unearthing what it means to be spied upon by a corporation under the sanction of the state.
