Paramount/Sony have released a short teaser for Steven Spielberg‘s The Adventures of Tintin via Apple and it looks pretty exciting. The performance capture animation looks a lot better than in previous movies using the technology and we even get to finally see Tintin’s face. However, this trailer doesn’t really introduce the characters or its universe too well and while Tintin is iconic outside the US, he is basically unknown here. In any case, this is only a one-minute teaser with random footage so don’t expect to learn too much about the plot or the characters.
Based on the series of books The Adventures of Tintin by Hergé, the film stars Jamie Bell as Tintin, Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock, Daniel Craig as the villain Red Rackham, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost as Thompson & Thompson, and Toby Jones as Silk. The Weta Digital-animated movie is set to come out in 3-D on December 23, 2011. Check out the teaser below and please let us know what you think!
