Unless you have just connected to the Internet for the first time since 1995, you will no doubt be aware that there is a new TinTin film coming out soon and a full trailer was released for it this week. Thanks to Paramount Australia, we can now take a look at that trailer.
Using the WETA Digital’s motion capture technology that was so prominent in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and will soon be seen in the forthcoming Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Adventures of TinTin: The Secret of the Unicorn certainly captures a naturalistic movement that is rarely captured in animation.
Will it be any good? This trailer reveals a little bit more of the storyline than the earlier teaser trailer we posted back in May, and it certainly looks action-packed. TinTin has a definite existing audience, and the presence of director by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who) and Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) & Joe Cornish (Attack the Block).
Stars Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, Defiance) and Daniel Craig (Quantum of Solace, Defiance) will also garner a little bit of pulling power. Expect a massive marketing push at the end of the year.
The Adventures of Tintin in 3D is due out in Australia on 26 December 2011 fromParamount.
