UPDATE: Full First Look At TINTIN And More!

Empire finally released the whole first look image from THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN and it looks striking! Exactly what I had anticipated from the project in fact. Tintin (Jamie Bell) looks like a photo-real representation of what Herge himself drew!

Further we have another two shots from the movie to have a look at the first is a look at Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) and the second is Tintin, Haddock and Snowy looking stranded on a capsized lifeboat. At least it looks like a lifeboat. Could be a DOREY though. ;-)

Says Peter Jackson: “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.”

Jackson continues on talking about what we might see in his directorial TINTIN: “One of my favourites is The Seven Crystal Balls, so that’s the one I’ve always been thinking of,” he says. “I also really like the Eastern European ones, the Balkan ones like King Ottokar’s Sceptre and The Calculus Affair. I think it’s a terrific setting for a thriller, the weird Balkan politics and the mysterious secret service agents. I think the Moon ones are terrific, but they’d be good for the third or fourth Tintin film, if we get that far. We want to keep his feet on the ground just a little bit longer.”

Says Steven Spielberg: “The first part of the film, which is the most mysterious part, certainly owes much to not only film noir but the whole German Brechtian theatre — some of our night scenes and our action scenes are very contrasty. But at the same time the movie is a hell of an adventure.”

With the creative genius behind this feature,
the characters of Herge and the second-to-none delivery of Weta on effects (AVATAR anyone?) we are sure to see a spectacular movie and sequels! The worldwide response will be staggering too. Can't wait.

More when I get it!
