Tintin posters and trailer revealed

It’s been years since the news that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson declared they were joining forces to make a photo-real, motion captured, CG version of the 1930’s comic books. Finally two teaser posters and the official trailer have been released!

Apparently ‘The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn’ is based on three of the original books by Hergé and, to add to the excitement, the screenplay has been written by Steven Moffat (Dr Who), Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish (Attack The Block), possibly the best production crew line up ever!

Playing the titular boy journalist is Jamie Bell, with support from the constantly drunk Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) and the Thompson Twins, not the 80’s band, the bumbling detectives (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost). The plot involves these characters getting involved in a hunt for sunken treasure on the notorious galleon, The Unicorn. The search for which invokes the legendary pirate Red Rackham (Daniel Craig).

So as well as a stellar production crew, the cast comprises an almost entirely UK cast, most notably Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones as well as the names mentioned previously. Watch the trailer below and tell me what you think.
