The inspirational biopic is leaping toward Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray in June.
As previously reported, 20th Century Fox is preparing 'Eddie the Eagle' for Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray, and now the release date has been announced as June 14.
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.
Specs for the Ultra HD Blu-ray have not been announced yet, but the Blu-ray will feature 1080p video and a DTS-HD MA 7.1 soundtrack. Supplements will include: Let The Games Begin: Soaring with Eddie the Eagle Documentary and Still Gallery.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD combo pack is $39.99. Suggested list price for the Ultra HD Blu-ray/Blu-ray/Digital HD combo pack is also $39.99.
