The first poster for the Spielberg/Jackson Tintin movie has arrived.

Though I’m not sold on the mo-cap portion of the movie, nor I’m I excited about the movie being in 3D/3-D, I still want to see it.

The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn is the first in the series of 3D motion capture films based on the iconic character created by Georges Remi, better known to the world by his pen name “Hergé.” The film stars Bell as Tintin, the intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure. The movie adapts both Hergé’s “The Secret of the Unicorn” and “Red Rackham’s Treasure,” using the title of the former.

The movie arrives December 23, 2011.

  1. I really look forward to this since I have only read a few Tintin books, and won’t bother until they release the true complete collection. But I still wonder if Spielberg can pull off the mo-cap animation stuff that Zemeckis beat with a dead horse.

    Also this is the first I am noticing it, but in the fine print where it jabbers on about Digital 3D, and IMAX 3D, it says in 2D in “selected” theaters. What the hell is that about? Maybe I am making a mountain out of a mole hill.

  2. Never liked Tintin as a character and the books were always sub-part compared to Asterix to me, hopefully they won’t force a love interest for Tintin seen how he’s never had one in any of the books and Hergé recently had him “out of the closet”. I hope it’s as good as “Asterix: Mission Cléopatre ” but I doubt it, if only because they are not filming it in French…

  3. Maybe I’m uncultured or something, but I’ve never found TinTin even remotely interesting and for a long time I didn’t know if that was the boy’s name or the dog. I’ll likely not rush out to see this, but I’ll wait for the previews to see how it looks. I like the people behind the film, so I’ll wait for more information.

  4. Alright, I just watched a preview and well everything in it looks great….except for people. I hate the motion capture stuff. Call it Uncanny Valley or whatever, but I don’t like it and I absolutely don’t want to see it in 3-D.
