We were a bit surprised — only a bit — when it was announced that Juan Jose Campanella, director of the Oscar-winning Secret in Their Eyes, would make an animated film called Metegol, or Foosball. Only a bit surprised because there was that one great sequence in Secret that takes place at a soccer match, suggesting that Campanella evidently has more than a passing interest in the sport. But foosball is something else altogether, and not a thing that is often chronicled on screen. (Who knew this teaser would hit so close to a foosball-themed Community episode?)

The film is reportedly about ” an underdog who, with the help of foosball figures that come to life, must take on a star soccer pro to save their village.” We’ll have to wait to see more of that, but for now there is a one-minute teaser that starts to give us an idea of what the animation will look like. Check it out below. Read More »
