In early 2014 The Weinstein Company picked up Argentina’s animated movie Metego about foosball players who come to life and the dubbed version is showing off an official trailer for the film now known as Underdogs. Directed by Juan José Campanella, the English language voice cast features Glee‘s Matthew Morrison, Ariana Grande, Nicholas Hoult, John Leguizamo, and Katie Holmes.

Underdogs will open in theaters on April 10, 2015.

The Plot:

From Academy Award® winning director Campanella comes Underdogs, an animated comedy with a little bit of magic and a whole lot of heart. Jake (Morrison) is a shy, but talented, foosball player. His passion for the game is rivaled only by his love for free-spirited Laura (Grande). With her encouragement, he beats the town bully, Ace (Hoult), in a foosball game. But everything changes when Ace becomes the world’s best soccer player and returns years later to turn their village into a new sports stadium. He starts to destroy everything and kidnaps Laura in the process. Just when it looks like all hope is lost, the toy figures from Jake’s foosball table come to life. He and the players embark on a wild adventure to save Laura and reclaim their village. With the help of his team, his town, and a little bit of magic, Jake will try to save the day.
