But it's taken footage from a land where football is actually played with your feet, to raise the bar, with the debut of the first trailer for Richard Ayoade's "Submarine" over on the film's official Facebook page, courtesy of Optimum Releasing. It's been gathering steady buzz ever since its debut at the Toronto Film Festival last September, and was picked up for U.S. distribution by The Weinstein Company.
