Tintin Trailer Wows Fans With Motion Capture Technology

TINTIN, the highly anticipated new movie by Steven Spielberg is set for release on 26th December 2011, and the film's official trailer debuted on the internet today (17th May 2011). The 'Tintin' trailer is already wowing fans of the iconic comic books with its motion capture animation.

The forthcoming movie, full title 'The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn', is the first in a planned trilogy of motion capture movies based on the books by GEORGES REMI. The first movie, directed by Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson, stars the British actor Jamie Bell as the young reporter. 'Bond' star Daniel Craig stars as the villainous 'Red Rackham', while Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook also make appearances. The second feature in the series is scheduled to be directed by Jackson, but it is not currently known who will take control of the third. The trailer features the intrepid 'Tintin' as he sets out in search of treasure belonging to his ancestor Sir Francis Haddock.

More than 200 million copies of the Tintin books have been sold worldwide, and the popular series has been translated into 70 languages.
