Avast! Latest Tintin Trailer For The Secret Of Uncanny Valley.

Here’s the latest, official and longer trailer for Steven Spielberg’s and Peter Jackson’s collaborated effort on The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn.

A couple of things we noticed about this trailer:

1. Tintin looks like a young motion captured John Arne Riise.

Tintin, before and after he played football for Liverpool FC.

2. Captain Haddock’s Scottish accent, (voiced by Andy Serkis), is somewhere between Christopher Lambert’s in Highlander and Robin Williams’s in Mrs Doubtfire. Don’t believe us? We refer you to the 1.29 mark for proof.

3. There is a distinct lack of character close-ups when dialogue is being delivered.

4. And finally, the general effects, which leads us to this:

Avast! Trailer For The Adventures Of Tintin.


This isn’t exactly the first trailer for the Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson produced motion-capture, CGI, 3D fest that is The Adventures Of Tintin – The Secret Of The Unicorn, this is the official International trailer which has a little bit more footage than the one released earlier in the month.

To be honest there’s nothing here but action shots and a distinct lack of decent close up shots of characters or even solid chunks of dialogue so the jury is still out on this one.
