COT Sydney - ‘Eddie the Eagle’ made it’s European premiere at the Odeon in London and with it came a host of British stars as well as Hugh Jackman, who flew over the pond to re-unite with co-star Taron Egerton and movie’s subject Eddie Edwards himself. The comedy biopic saw ‘Kingsman’ star Taron Egerton in the role of the titular Olympic ski jump legend; a man who became famous not for his exceptional talent on the slopes, but indeed for his distinct lack of such and yet overwhelming determination and perseverance that struck accord with the whole nation at the 1988 Winter Olympics.
