What do you get when you take Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg and get them to work on a movie adaptation of one of the most famous comics of all time? A movie well worth getting excited about, to begin with. Well, a host of new images for the movie have started trickling in thanks to Empire and here is your first look at ‘The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn’.
The image replicates the shot of Tintin being hit by a spotlight and is pretty spot on at that. The animation here is motion-capture like ‘Avatar’ and is cutting-edge. Here is what Peter Jackson has to say about it:
With live action you’re going to have actors pretending to be Captain Haddock and Tintin… You’d be casting people to look like them. It’s not really going to feel like the Tintin Hergé drew. It’s going to be somewhat different. With CGI we can bring Hergé’s world to life, keep the stylised caricatured faces, keep everything looking like Hergé’s artwork, but make it photo-real.
I agree that it looks photo-real without ditching the cartoonish tone of the source material and that seems like the right way to go with a movie like this. The two shots below are also pretty impressive although I will make up my mind after seeing a trailer.
See the rest after the jump.
