If, rhetorically, you were to ask me how Juan José Campanella would follow 2010′s terrific The Secret In Their Eyes, an animated film centering on a foosball table figure… would not have been an early guess.

This being, again, a teaser, we only get some ordinary wisecracks from a British “football” player and his victorious goal; all well and good, though this newfound curiosity leaves me wanting a bit more. But, whatever. I’m just glad Campanella‘s got something new in the pipeline.
