Steve Coogan portrays Phileas Fogg, a scientist whose track record is littered with failures.  Fogg’s colleague, Lord Kelvin (Jim Broadbent) is convinced that science has reached its peak.  Fogg disagrees though, and is skeptical of scientists' claim that 50 miles per hour is the maximum speed of travel. 

Phileas has devised a new method of transportation, and claims that he can circle the globe in 80 days.  Kelvin is certain of his rival's failure, and proposes a daring bet: if Fogg’s mission succeeds he will forfeit his position as the Minister of Science, and allow Phileas to replace him.
