When the first trailer for Moneyball dropped last month one thought was going through my head constantly: a movie about baseball statistics shouldn't look this amazing. When you have Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian working on the script and Brad Pitt starring, however, it's a whole new ballgame (if you'll pardon the pun). Throw in the fact that director Bennett Miller's angles, focus-shifts and alternating speeds make the games look incredibly beautiful and Moneyball may end up being one of the best films of the fall. Now we get our second look at the film.

Based on the book by Michael Lewis, the film centers on Billy Beane (Brad Pitt), a former-player-turned-general-manager who, despite all of his efforts, can't seem to make a winning team out of the Oakland Athletics. Strangled by a microscopic budget and his job always on the line, Beane's fortunes turn around when he meets Peter Brand (Jonah Hill), a young man who has a whole new approach to scouting. Signing players with high on-base percentages instead of homerun power, Beane and Brand work together to change the game, but with an institution as storied as Major League Baseball change doesn't come easy.

Check out the film's new TV spot below.
