FOX has released the Super Bowl Spot for their upcoming feel-good British drama "Eddie the Eagle," which stars Taron Egerton (star of "Kingsman: The Secret Service") as real-life British ski-jumping hopeful Michael "Eddie" Edwards as he battles the odds in order to compete in the 1988 Winter Olympics. The 30-second commercial features some of the former Super Bowl Winning Quarterbacks giving their reaction to an early private screening of the film, including Seahawks' Russell Wilson, Drew Brees, and Kurt Warner.

Directed by actor-turned-helmer Dexter Fletcher, and co-starring Christopher Walken, Jo Hartley, Tim McInnerny, Rune Temte, and Hugh Jackman as Eddie's former championship skier hero turned coach.

"Eddie the Eagle" is set to hit the slopes on February 26th.

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.
