Hoping to get a last minute push, the new underdog sports drama "Eddie the Eagle" has gotten itself a new international trailer that's laced with some positive quotes from movie reviewers who promises that the film "will make your heart soar."

The film tells the story of Michael "Eddie" Edwards (played by Kingsman star Taron Egerton), as he grew up being an Olympic hopeful, even though he wasn't necessary gifted with any true talent. Still determined to one day go for the gold, Eddie eventually made himself into a good downhill skier, but unfortunately narrowly missed out on joining the Great Britain team. Soon Eddie discovers that to fulfill his Olympic dreams; he must switch from downhill skiing to ski jumping, which has no other British skiers competing in that sport.

Hugh Jackman plays a former washed-up Olympic ski-jumping hero who reluctantly becomes Eddie's coach and trainer after he finds out that Eddie is not the average jumper.

Directed by actor-turned-helmer Dexter Fletcher, "Eddie the Eagle" is set to jump onto U.S. screens starting 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. 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.
