Watch the eye-popping 'Adventures of Tintin' teaser here!

I was a huge fan of the Tintin series when I was a kid. Starring the titular youthful adventurer (who, in hindsight, resembles a weirdly perfect mash-up of Indiana Jones, James Bond, and Scrooge McDuck), the Tintin series had it all: Exotic locations, eccentric characters, incredible artwork that could be grittily realistic or candy-colored cartoony. So it’s difficult for me to not geek out over the new trailer for The Adventures of Tintin, a motion-capture animation film directed by Steven Spielberg, produced by Peter Jackson, and written by geek-hero Edgar Wright (among others). The first in a proposed trilogy, Adventures of Tintin looks gorgeous in this preview. I’m a bit worried that we don’t see too many faces, but the brief shot of Tintin’s face at the trailer’s end gives me hope that Tintin will fall on the fun side of the Uncanny Valley. Check out the trailer below…

Interested viewers can also check out the international teaser trailer, which appears essentially identical except for some dialogue at the end. Also, apparently the film’s full international title will actually be The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, which if nothing else is a much cooler post-colon subtitle than Ghost Protocol.

    • darclyte

      It looks a LOT better than Mars Needs Moms…and I don’t just mean the animation. The biggest issue I had with the MNM trailers is that the story and characters just seemed dumb. Tintin is an established character, and Spielberg is a legendary director. So far, this seems much more interesting and very little was actually shown what it’s about.

    Could be good… or could be Zemekis-mo-cap-movies bad. I’ll reserve judgement until I see more of the human faces.

    False advertising! Neither of my eyes popped!

    • shawshank

      Seriously. What was supposed to be eye-popping? “ZOUNDS! That sheet looks SO REALISTIC as they unveil the boat model!!!!”

  • Vince

    One of the dumbest Characters they ever came up with. What a waste

  • JoeR

    They should have just made a good live-action movie or an all-animated movie, but not this mix of the two. I find motion-capture disturbing, and I know I’m not the only one. Tintin, a great comics series, deserves better.

  • Jennifer

    Andy Serkis is partly Armenian. A lot of people don’t know that.

    • lou b.

  • elliott

    Best. Random Comment. Ever.

  • Lilah

    I loved the Canadian animated series, it had the best score, I wished they used that instead, also, it really did not need to be motion capture, regular animation would suffice.

  • Carly

    Wow Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright helped write this! That is geek-tastic news! Makes me want to see this movie even more. I grew up watching the animated show as well!

  • Mephysto

    Looks like one of those crappy animated movies that Robert Zemeckis does.. Pass!

  • Tupelo

    I’ll watch if Michael Bolton comes out of the shadows and sings “Jack Sparrow.”

    • jackson

      agreed
