Trailer Watch: The Adventures of Tintin trailer #2 (updated with Spielberg & Jackson)

A new, more in-depth trailer for Steven Spielberg’s motion capture Hergé adaptation, The Adventures of Tintin has hit the webs, and while the first two trailers looked pretty good, now I’m sold on it. I’m still not crazy about the character designs, but the fluidity of the movement is terrific, and the performances and the story all feel true to the books — as well as a whole lot of fun.

Check it out in HD over at Apple, or with the YouTube embed below:

The film opens in the UK this weekend, but won’t hit the US until December 21st (a whole two days earlier than the last time I checked). Let us know how it is, mates!

UPDATE (10/19): THR has kindly provided a short interview with director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson about their involvement with the Tintin film, and it sports a few seconds of footage not seen in this new trailer. Good stuff, all around.

Trailer Watch: The Adventures of Tintin international trailer

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 — apparently, even a virtual one — 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 Hergé 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 1929–1976, 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 — adapting the two-part adventure comprised of “Secret of the Unicorn” and “Red Rackham’s Treasure” from the classic comics — sails onto the big screen on December 23rd.
