The Adventures Of Tintin Teaser Trailer Released

Take a look at the gorgeous new teaser trailer for The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, coming to cinemas this December. Directed by Steven Spielberg, produced by Peter Jackson, written by Stephen Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish and chock-full of geek faves in the acting/mo-cap department — Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Cary Elwes and Daniel Craig to name a few — it’s already shaping up to be a great treat for the holidays.

The animation in the trailer looks amazing — performance capture has come a long way since Tom Hanks’s multiple roles in The Polar Express, and it enables Pegg and Frost to play Thompson and Thomson, even though they don’t exactly look like each other! The ship sailing through the sea/sand dunes is jaw-droppingly good, and there’s plenty of action in the two minutes and twenty seconds. Moffat and Wright have taken ideas from four of Hergé’s storylines (“The Crab with the Golden Claws,” “The Secret of the Unicorn” and “Red Rackham’s Treasure”) and merged them into one screenplay — let’s hope that all of these great elements can deliver in the final film.
