PG-13 | | Biography, Comedy, Drama
The story of Eddie Edwards, the notoriously tenacious British underdog ski jumper who charmed the world at the 1988 Winter Olympics.
It was reported in the media around December 23, 2014, that Gary Barlow was in discussion to do the soundtrack for the movie.
To say that his style is unorthodox would be something of an understatement, but it obviously works for him.
The nose piece of the 1972 Pontiac Firebird that Bronson Peary works on has 4 scalloped headlight recessions, which first appeared on the 1979 model. This is consistent with the time line of the movie. The scene in question is set in winter 1987. Moreover this car make has been subject to car customizing regularly, so a '79 nose mounted on a '72 model is well possible.
During the end credits photos of the real Michael "Eddie the Eagle" Edwards are shown.
