New ‘The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn’ Trailer Shows Off its CGI Cast [Video]
Motion capture computer generated animation is pretty unsettling as a general rule, but I have to admit, Steven Spielberg’s cinematic adaptation of Hergé’s Tintin series is looking more and more natural.
Yahoo Movies UK has a new trailer for The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn that gives fans their first decent introduction to the film’s cast. At last, the spirit of the comics outshines the visible pores on Captain Haddock’s glistening schnoz!The new trailer does a solid job of establishing the adventurous spirit of reporter Tintin, his dog Snowy and their eventual friend Captain Haddock as they’re swept up in the hunt for the Unicorn, a near-legendary ship that’s treasure was lost in battle during the 17th century.
Jamie Bell also seems to do the conventionally cute-looking Tintin some serious animated justice in this trailer by delivering a confident (if somewhat cavalier) tone consistent with the character’s comic book personality. The dude may be a skinny reporter with a small dog, but it’s great to see he’ll be suitably scrappy when called for.
