Okay, I’m on board now. I still don’t like the too-”realistic” designs of the film, but Spielberg knows how to work a camera â€” apparently, even a virtual one â€” and I think I can get over it for two hours. The first trailer piqued my interest, but this new one actually shows characters talking and interacting more, and it’s all a bit more convincing.
For the uninitiated, the Tintin comics by HergÃ© follow the adventures of a young reporter, Tintin (Jamie Bell), and his dog Snowy as he journeys around the globe in search of a good story (even if you almost never actually see him write anything). The all-ages adventure comics were originally published from 1929â€“1976, and they are some of the greatest adventure comics ever made. (Various collected editions are in print, and should be available at good bookstores and comics shops everywhere.)
The Adventures of Tintin â€” adapting the two-part adventure comprised of “Secret of the Unicorn” and “Red Rackham’s Treasure” from the classic comics â€” sails onto the big screen on December 23rd.
