I know nothing about Tintin but this trailer looks pretty damn good

10.05.2011

We get two Steven Spielberg movies this holiday season. One is the Oscar frontrunner WAR HORSE, aimed squarely at adults. The other, THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN, is a mo-cap animated film aimed squarely at kids (heck, it's released through Nickelodeon). Both look pretty damn good.

I've been sort of waffling on TINTIN for some time now and partly that's because of my admitted ignorance to the franchise. It's also because of my reticence towards mo-cap as a viable form of filmmaking. But I'm really liking what I see in this latest trailer. I always thought Zemeckis was a little too showy with his mo-cap films like he was trying to be more of a salesman for the process than just a director. Spielberg seems to have reigned a lot of that in and this looks very much like a traditionally animated film.

TINTIN doesn't have much in the way of buzz but maybe that will change as we move into winter. What do you think? You interested in this?

Yes, this will work.
This trailer sold it to me big time.
Though I don't get why they used the same font and color as Watchmen.

My question to naysayers of the mocap work for this movie is: How is it that you people don't realize that this is a cartoon? It's a cartoon that used motion capture for added realism to the characters. The faces aren't modeled after actors, they're CARTOON FACES.

Extremely excited!

But I'm also a Tintin fan, ever since I was young and watched the cartoon series reruns on HBO. And this movie is looking better!

I'm a huge Tintin fan, and with the talent involved, I can only expect their very best. This is looking like it.

Tintin has an incredibly vast fanbase outside of the US. While it's most popular in Europe, it extends to all corners of the globe.
With an enormous property such as Tintin and with Spielberg attached, I'm not worried about it doing well. I'm worried about the story and the handling of the characters.
