The three greeted waiting fans outside the theater before heading inside to field questions from TV, radio, and online news outlets. All three of the celebrities were very polite and took time to answer as many questions as they could as they were pushed through the line to the auditorium. Once inside, they introduced the movie to an audience of hundreds.
Cut from the Olympic ski team, British athlete Michael "Eddie" Edwards travels to Germany to test his skills at ski jumping. Fate leads him to Bronson Peary, a former ski jumper who now works as a snowplow driver. Impressed by Edwards' spirit and determination, Peary agrees to train the young underdog. Despite an entire nation counting him out, Eddie's never-say-die attitude takes him all the way to a historic and improbable showing at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta.
Eddie the Eagle hits theaters on February 26.
