Over at Apple Trailers, Paramount Pictures have unveiled a first look at the forthcoming animated epic The Adventures of Tintin, the first big Hollywood adaptation of Hergé classic series of graphic novels.
Paramount Pictures and Columbia Pictures Present a 3D Motion Capture Film The Adventures of Tintin directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who) and Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) & Joe Cornish (Attack the Block).
Starring Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, Defiance) as Tintin, the intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure, and Daniel Craig (Quantum of Solace, Defiance) as the nefarious Red Rackham.
If the thought of a CGI-animated Tin Tin doesn’t already float your boat, perhaps the state-of-the-art motion capture technology will. Or maybe that the legendary Steven Spielberg is directing a script by Steven Moffat (Doctor Who), Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) and Joe Cornish (The Adam and Joe Show).
Hergé’s most famous creation should have lovers of animation and film-lovers alike wetting their pants in anticipation, especially when the voice (and motion) talents of Simon Pegg, Jamie Bell, Daniel Craig, Cary Elwes, Nick Frost and Andy Serkis grace the cast list.
The Adventures of Tintin in 3D is due out in Australia on 26 December 2011 from Paramount.
