Here’s Your First Look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson’s The Adventures of Tintin

First Looks ||

Unless you’re one of those people who call Doctor Who their favorite television series, the chances are good that you’ve got limited knowledge of Tintin and his trusty dog, Snowy. The cub reporter, made famous by Belgian artist Hergé (really Georges Rémi), is huge abroad, but barely known here in America. That will likely change come 2011, when Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson unleash their motion capture-palooza, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, on the unsuspecting public.

British film magazine Empire brings you the first looks at Tintin (fitting since the film will hit UK cinemas before arriving in the United States), and they’re…like Polar Express only without snow? But with Snowy? They’re only three pictures, but it appears the uncanny valley has yet to be mastered, even by two visual effects masters. Still: Intriguing. Check out the images below.



In case you’re wondering, that is Andy Serkis as Tintin’s (voiced/played by Jamie Bell) pal Captain Haddock. The Adventures of Tintin hits theaters on Dec. 28, 2011.
