Must Watch: Full Length International Trailer for 'Adventures of Tintin'

Adventures of Tintin

So far we've only seen a short but sweet teaser for Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's collaborative motion capture animation film The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, but that was enough to get me pumped for the film later this year. Now thankfully we have an extended look at the promising film starring Jamie Bell as the titular intrepid reporter. Honestly, this is some of the best motion capture animation I've ever seen, and seeing the style of Hergé's illustrations come to life is pretty fantastic. Hopefully audiences will be just as interested in the film this December as I am now. See the trailer below!

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn was originally 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 the first teaser trailer in May. Does it look like a lot of fun?

      I believe there are going to be two films which they shot one right after the other.

    It looks as utterly soulless as the fake as hell CGI characters that inhabit it

      As a Tintin fan, that's unfortunately how I feel about it. Something is least for me. I think I would have preferred a real life movie.

         I agree with you Buzzfunk, I also grew up watching and reading the adventures of tin tin and thoroughly enjoyed both. Though after watching the trailer...I have my doubts, the voice of Tin Tin just does not sound the same to me as in the animated series, or maybe it is just me. Otherwise I can't wait to see that good ol' drunkard of a Captain making a complete ass of himself like he usually does when he goes on a rant.

      This is how Avatar might have looked if its MoCap sucked.
  • Good trailer, but there's no hiding the Uncanny Valleyness of the mocap.
  • MithunOnThe.Net
    This looks amazing!
    • Ding
      Are you on drugs? Pooooh.
  • It looks fun. I'd like it better if the actors were real though.
  • Anonymous
    You can say all you like about the CGI, but it looks a lot better than A Christmas Carol.
    • Mr. Otaku
       I concur. Let's be honest who in the real world would have a round head and hair like Tin Tin's? And Snowy, what real life dog has a rectangular shaped head like that? Or maybe I haven't seen enough dogs in my life and there is one. But more importantly I actually liked they did CGI instead of live action.
  • Voice of Reason
    I have a few reservations, but I'm more revved than anything! Mostly this reminds me of the crappy Zemeckis brand of mo-cap, which just turns me off immediately alongside the conflict of a realistic cartoon being played out. I get that the action is realistic, but there's a lot of lightheartedness that plays well in the comic but comes across as peculiar in the trailer. The lightness of the original art made it OK when Thompson falls down a flight of stairs, or the cute "tornado" lines that emanated from a characters head after coming to from being walloped. With this style of animation I'd expect Thompson to snap his neck and the person coming to to spit out blood.
  • Brandon
    Definitely will be seeing this. 
  • Marty
    A definite step up from Zemeckis' mocap crap, but still feels odd and somewhat lifeless. The action and cinematography look great though.
  • Shige
    Ok, 1) They seem to have completely butchered the story. 2) The chars, movements and effects look as plastic and god awful as ever.  Not a month goes by that Hollywood takes a classic and destroys it. Spielberg continues to disappoint. I wont see this piece of crap and  feel bad for the young generation that has to be introduced to Tintin by watching this.
    • Anonymous
      Agreed. I think growing up with the comics, it's hard to watch. I mean of course they had to change a few things for the movie, thats a given. How much they 'butchered' it we'll have to see.. Overall, I don't like the look of it. Animation looks weird. It cant shake that Zemeckis look, which I never liked.  Spielberg has yet to redeem himself for the last Indy turd. Looking at the talent involved, I refuse to give up on it. Plus im dying to hear what Williams will do with this.  Heres to hope that its good!!
    • Sam Doyle
      That all relies on the fact that you saying the story is butchered makes it so.
  • Loser
    I`m in
  • sleepykid
    Love the books. Loathe this trailer.
  • Lame
    Laaaame!!! Trailer alone is too hard to watch. lol
    • Ding
  • Jedibilly
    Happy to see there's no anti-3D whiners commenting so far. This will be good in 3D especially during the spectacular scenes.
  • Jackmooney5
    It looks like the movie will be another spielberg hit
  • Tomi
    Cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Ding
      Dont forget the towel
  • Cody
    I wasn't excited about this in the slightest...until now.  Looks great!
  • Pedro Nuno
    i was hoping the dreaded "in 3D" wouldn't show up at the end...I was wrong
    • Jez
      Refreshingly this ain't one of those shoddy conversion jobs.
  • Mob_obaid
  • looks brilliant they have my cinema fee already lol if it wasnt done in CGI people would b!tch because the actor didnt look like the character you just cant please wana-be critics
  • George Caltsoudas
    Why did they give Tintin an English accent? That makes him indistinguishable from the twins who ARE meant to be English. Tintin should have a French accent.
    • Laurent
       It's news to me that the twins are meant to be English. Does the original comic book contain any reference to this at all?
  • Gin&Tonic
    Tintin should have had a belgium accent, not french. And whats with Haddok´s potato head, looks pretty wide?  It was better than expected, at least from my point of view, I have all the collection since childhood. Circa 1976. Tintin in the Congo, that would be an amazing controversial film, a headache for the political correctness smucks.
    • Lebowski
      You do realize that literally half of Belgium is French speaking, don't you? And that Belgium shares like more then 600km of borders with France? They are basically French.  And for the record, Tintin in the Congo is deeply paternalistic, colonialist and racist, and would not make a good film, despite the utter brilliance of the rest of series.  
      • Gin&Tonic
        You do realize that even though both countries speak French, they have dinguishible accents. Thanks for the borders lesson.  Tintin in the Congo is an uber utter brilliant comic book.
        • Lebowski
          Well that shuts my knowitall mouth. But Congo is still bad.

    I think it looks like it'll be fun. Both of the directors grew up with the source material, so I'm hoping the film will live up to the TinTin name. I too was a bit miffed that they went with the mocap style instead of having animators actually animate it, but it doesn't look awful like the stuff Zemeckis was doing. I would have preferred real animation, tho. I'll probably go see it, cause it looks like fun, and while I have doubts about Spielberg as of late, I like Jackson enough to hope that it'll be as good as I'd wish it would be.
  • better trailer than the rest
  • Wasn't looking forward to it and this confirmed it. Total meh in all respects but definitely in Queue for Netflix.
  • Matt
    This looks just awful.
  • Guest22324
    ROFL @ people saying it looks "too CGI"... Um, that's because IT IS CGI YOU IDIOTS!
  • TheRealCoryHaim
    I GUARANTEE THIS WILL BOMB!  Only old people know what Tin Tin is...this movie is out of place today...and i hate it when a trailer/marketing tries to push on you up front how "epic" it a joke  This looks DUMB
    • Speaking of dumb failures, how is Corey Haim expressing his opinion at all when he ODed last year?
      • Yep Corey's up in the sky with Tupac. Too good for this earth. RIPeazles. - Serke is that Avatar artwork you have your own? It's really good.
        • No, it's a bit of concept art from the Legacy of Kain video games, actually. Lol.
  • jah p
    Looks pretty good...
  • I noticed they tended to avoid showing the mouths matching the voice acting. It's probably not completed yet. The more cartoony aspects of the style work, but the occasional soul-less glimpses of the aforementioned Uncanny Valley are off-putting. Hopefully the finished product will be less jarring.
  • I will wait for the Adventure in Peru! :)
  • mask man
    what's with all the hate. i am super excited for this! 
    • Ding
      Man you definitely opened your eyes just now.
  • That's a whole load of fairly negative posts there. I defo get what people are saying, the Zemeckis stuff is evil, but maybe it will be okay? I like that Haddock is Scottish, I suppose with him being grumpy, drunk and fighting all the time it makes sense. Doubt I'd go to the cinema to watch it though.
  • duane
    i grew up with this... and i am taking my ass in the theater to see this.  Someone posted about wishing it was live action.  The last live action take on a beloved euro comic of mine was Asterix.  I still can't get the taste of that wretch out of my mouth.  Until I actually see it and it disappoints.... I am psyched.
  • I grew up with TinTin, Asterix, Lucky Luke and the like. I sort of liked the Asterix movie and it's sequel, but this seems wrong somehow. Maybe I just had a different image on my head as to how TinTin is. I won't argue with it though, since it's been more than 10 years since I last read a TinTin comic.
  • Ding
    Except that this is not the 'better' one
  • Chuck
    i think it looks awesome, cant wait
  • Amumra
    Sad to say, much like with most comic movies, they are going to dumb this down for the younger generation. The sense of this? I don't know. I don't get why Hollywood insists on taking GREAT classics and ripping them apart one by one. I mean, I get it. No more ideas out there. Well, don't take good stuff and turn it into okay stuff. If you're to remake a classic, remake the graphics, edit the story a bit, but don't twist the story up.

    why wasn't this done in live action instead?
  • Cathychhangte
    i am so excited
