New Teaser Trailer and Poster for Juan Jose Campanella's 'Foosball'
After being a the helm of the Best Foreign Film at the Academy Awards in 2009, director Juan Jose Campanella decided to venture into animation. It's not a traditional route for a director, especially after winning an Oscar, but Campanella apparently felt drawn to this Spanish language film Foosball (or Metegol). The 3D computer animated film follows Amadeo, a shy but talented boy, and a foosball trying to get back together after having been dismantled. With the help of the foosball players, Amadeo takes on the most terrible football rival: the Champ. This is a much more polished tease than the first one. Watch below!

And here's the teaser poster for Foosball, which has a slightly different title:
Foosball is directed by Juan Jose Campanella (The Secret in Their Eyes) and based on a short story called Memoirs of a Right Winger by Argentine writer Roberto Fontanarrosa. Eduardo Sacheri, who adapted The Secret in Their Eyes, and Gaston Gorali and Axel Kuschevatzky wrote the script about a boy and a dismantled foosball team who must unite or order to take on the football rival known as The Champ and work together to get their dignity back. The film is expected to hit international theaters sometime this year, but since it's a Spanish language film, we're not sure when it might make its way to the United States.
