Watch the First Trailer for ‘The Adventures of Tintin’


The first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn has arrived online, and we’re feeling a bit conflicted. On one hand, you’ve got a beloved Belgian boy hero and the filmmaking team behind this project — the aforementioned Spielberg, co-producer Peter Jackson, and a screenwriting team that includes Steven Moffat (Doctor Who) and Edgar Wright. On the other, there’s the fact that motion captured movies usually creep us out (see: Beowulf, The Polar Express) — not that we see more than a hint of the characters in this brief, action-packed preview. Click through to check out the trailer, and let us know in the comments if you plan on checking this one out when it opens in 3D on December 23rd.
