After the Kingsman's headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, an allied spy organisation in the United States is discovered. These two elite secret organisations must band together to defeat a common enemy.
In the near future, crime is patrolled by a mechanized police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.
Seventy-year-old widower Ben Whittaker has discovered that retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin.
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.Written by

Director Dexter Fletcher cast his old Press Gang (1989) co-star and friend Paul Reynolds as a muck-raking journalist who interviews Eddie. (Fletcher played Spike Thomson, Reynolds was spiffy Colin Mathews in the ITV school newspaper series.) See more »

To say that his style is unorthodox would be something of an understatement, but it obviously works for him.

A Great Movie that left my Wife and I satisfied, inspired and smiling
A very funny, enjoyable and inspiring movie for the whole family.
A human interest film that are rare these days with so many movies that rely on bravado and special effects.
Based on a true story, which proves if you have dreams from a young age that persist you should follow them no matter what the odds are against them and ignore all the doubters that tell you you cannot achieve them.
The human spirit and believing in one's self are very powerful forces.
Eddie is a character that you cannot dislike.
Hugh Jackman's character helps Eddie achieve his dream since Eddie would not be deterred.
Eddie unknowingly helps Hugh Jackman's character out of his funk and he is re-born again.
We highly recommend this film.
