Here is the synopsis: Jake (Matthew 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.

The 25-year-old actor was joined at the event by his co-star Charlize Theron, who took some beautiful photos on a balcony.
Here is the movie’s official synopsis: Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max (Tom Hardy) believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa (Theron). They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

Underdogs centers on a shy but talented foosball player (Morrison) who must defend his town and the girl he loves, Laura (Grande), from the nefarious soccer player Ace (Hoult). He’s aided by the figures on his foosball table, who magically come to life, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“This talented cast takes our script and enhances it, with brilliant improvisation and wonderful chemistry. I’m so proud of these super-talented actors and comedians,” The Weinstein Company co-chairman Harvey Weinstein commented in a statement.
The movie, an English-language version of a hit Argentine film, will hit theaters on April 10, 2015.
During the interview, Nicholas opened up about how he chooses his roles, and if he prefers the sci-fi genre.
“There’s that thing where by they are all grounded and realistic characters and human emotions, with good dialogue and good people working on the film,” he said. “That’s the appeal essentially, just to work with good people and learn.”
Young Ones is set in the future when water is hard to find, and a teenage boy sets out to protect his family and survive.
“In casting Hoult, a young, good-looking and charismatic actor with just the right amount of eccentric British charm, we found our boy genius,” Matt Page, the creative director of commercial agency Spark44 shared. “He plays the role of the Villain’s behind-the-scenes technology wiz, providing his bosses with the right equipment for their mission, Jaguar cars, and in doing so, he wittily describes the innovation and technology that makes our cars feel so alive.”
