The Adventures of Tintin

Tintin is coming! Word is that we may finally see a trailer for this movie tomorrow, but before then, Empire has the first official teaser poster and it's quite cool to see. The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is the first big CGI animated adaptation of Hergé's beloved characters. We've been hearing about this for years and waiting to see a trailer, as we finally got a first look last year, now we're nearly there. It's a great poster for a movie with a lot of interest and I also like the epic pirate ship/airplane background imagery that definitely indicates this is going to be quite an adventure. Check out this new poster full below!

Update: Ain't It Cool News also revealed another different teaser poster to compliment the one above. I've added it below as well, as this just wouldn't be complete without both of the new Tintin posters side-by-side!

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn first movie was directed by Steven Spielberg, produced by Peter Jackson with a script co-written by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish. The cast includes Jamie Bell as Tintin, Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost as Thompson & Thompson, Daniel Craig as the villain Red Rackham, and Toby Jones as Silk. The animated movie, in the works at Weta Digital, will hit US theaters in glorious 3D starting on December 23rd, Christmas weekend, late this year. We featured a first look back in December and a few more photos not long after. Stay tuned for the trailer!

I love this because I love Tin Tin, but Im not necessarily blown away. The tonal quality and fonts reminds me a lot of Life Aquatic a little too much as both are going for that vintage, travel-advertisement, ephemeral vibe. I'm just dying for a trailer at this point.

Tintin, not Tin Tin.

& is used to connect to individual objects as one thing. Steven Moffat wrote alone, but Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish wrote together, this is signified by putting the ampersand in there. Look at Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot. Those guys are a writting team, so they are always credited with as "Terry Rossio & Ted Elliot".

 Come on...not blown away by what? A first poster? rofl It's spielberg, its John Williams and it's Herge. What more could you possibly as for?

Good enough for me. I can vividly remember reading the comics as a child in elementary school. I am beyond stoked for the movie, I was just telling my girlfriend about it. If the trailer comes out tomorrow I will cream. I am surprised how long they have waited to release this stuff though, I mean we already have a poster for Expendables 2...Guess Steven/Peter wanted to leave us on the edge of our seats.

I hope a trailer sways me...right now I'm just not interested.

 In there for a few reasons... 1) I grew up reading this and Asterix 2) Spielberg/Jackson?  Come on. 3) The writing crew made up of the creators of Shaun of the Dead, Attack the Block AND Doctor Who?    COME ON.

Duane on May 16, 2011


The only good credit out of that line up is Doctor Who. I hope they get it, but i doubt they will.

 Looks great...classic.

 Good posters, I have to say I'm starting to actually like this.. Still I hope Spielberg comes back with something more Spielberg.

Davide Coppola on May 16, 2011


I'm stoked out of my mind for this.

Fredrik Högstedt on May 16, 2011


Hey Alex there is nothing "Glorious" about 3-D!!

Xerxexx on May 16, 2011


 Xerx, I think you should make that your tagline next to your screen-name.  😉

Jedi on May 16, 2011


You know what, that is genius!

Xerxexx on May 17, 2011


Anyone think Spielberg and Jackson are wasting their talent on this? Zemeckis is the same, off making kids movie. 

TIR NA NOG on May 16, 2011


 To fuel the fire... aw, no, it's not that section. Kinda like it. Hopefully we are going to see something more soon... are we?

Manuel on May 16, 2011


 call me old fashion but ive never been able to get into these CGI animated films. I have a little interest because of Jackson. Will wait till its on netflix.

happy camper on May 16, 2011


Peter Jackson doesn't just stand on the shoulders of giants, he takes a shit on them whilst he's up there.  

Moif on May 18, 2011


 tin tin is a great comic and I see the delay in this only as a testament to ensuring the quality of this work (god I hope thats the case)I think modern society needs to be reminded that we had some kick ass creations and more important VALUES long before this technology infatuated culture. Im reminded of that anytime I catch a pre censor movie from the 30's top notch story telling that can be retold today without hardly changing a thing!

lando on May 16, 2011


I wonder why the credits say "screenplay by Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish". What's with the ampersand?

Julius on May 16, 2011


 That's a credit thing. There can be multiple drafts of a film's script, and for any draft there can be multiple writers working on it. When you see "And" between two names it means they worked on two separate drafts of the script. When you see "&" between them, they both worked on the same draft. Thus, Steve Moffat worked on one draft of the script, then Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish worked on another draft together.

Does Tintin swing through the jungle with a bunch of monkeys in this movie? 

Anonymous on May 17, 2011


 No he doesn't. Lucas is not involved in this movie in any way. So we should be save of any shoddy attempted at humor.

Buzzfunk on May 19, 2011


Amzing CGI in the trailer!
