Back in October 2010, we reported that The Secret in Their Eyes director Juan José Campanella is making Metegol, which foosball fans will surely enjoy. Today, we have the first international trailer for this animated comedy that centers on a man who must face a world-famous soccer star in order to save his village. He gets help from the figures on a foosball table that magically spring into action to help the man fulfill his destiny. Take a look at the first footage from this bizarre comedy, which doesn't have a domestic release date set at this time.
Metegol - International Trailer
Check out this fun trailer for the CG animated feature film called Metegol or Foosball in English. The film comes from Academy award winner Juan J. Campanella (The Secret in Their Eyes and episodes of House and 30 Rock). The story is built around the great sport of Foosball! I used to play Foosball all the time, but the sport just got too intense and crazy for me, so I had to give it up for the greater good. Or maybe the Foosball table broke and I just never bothered to fix it or get a new one.
The movie may not be a Pixar or DreamWorks Animation film, but it still looks entertaining. Here's the synopsis:

Based on a short story called ‘Memoirs of a Right Winger’ by Argentine writer Roberto Fontanarrosa the 3D 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.
