Watch: Teaser Trailer for Juan Jose Campanella's Animated 'Foosball'

Aside from the fact that The Secret in Their Eyes won Best Foreign Film at the Academy Awards in 2009, the film from director Juan Jose Campanella was worthy of plenty of praise. One particular portion involved a spectacularly directed and extensive scene at a soccer (or football) match, a scene that more than hinted at the passion Campanella shared for the sport. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the director turned his attention to an animated film called Metegol, or Foosball. The film follows an underdog who, with the help of foosball figures that come to life, must take on a star soccer pro to save their village. Watch!

Here's the teaser trailer for Juan Jose Campanella Foosball, originally found via The Playlist:

Obviously it's just a teaser, but the animation looks pretty great, and the concept sounds fun for adults and children alike. It's important to note that this trailer is dubbed for English-speaking audiences, but the film from Argentina actually has a cast of native speakers voicing the film including Pablo Rago, Fabian Gianola, Miguel Angel Rodriguez, Horacio Fontova and David Masajnik. Campanella also wrote the film with Gaston Gorali, Axel Kuschevatzky and Eduardo Sacheri, but it's not clear when audiences here in the United States might be able to see the film in theaters, so stay tuned as more information becomes available. Look good?
