Steven Spielberg finished filming The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn in March 2009 after a mere 32 days of shooting with the same performance-capture technology James Cameron used for Avatar. Since then Peter Jackson’s WETA Digital have been working their magic, but instead of aiming for photorealism they’ve gone for a classic Tintin look.
The only marketing thus far has been the release of some stills back in November last year, but now Alberta Film Ratings has updated their site stating a teaser trailer lasting 1 minute and 3 seconds has been submitted by Paramount Pictures, so we can probably expect it to be released sometime soon.
The likely bet is for it to be released alongside Kung Fu Panda 2 as it is also a Paramount movie, which means we only have roughly 2 weeks to wait.
In the film Jamie Bell stars as journalist and adventurer Tintin with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost playing detective twins Thompson and Thomson and Daniel Craig playing villainous pirate Red Rackham. Paramount will release The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn in the US in December, with Sony releasing the film in Europe and overseas in October.
