Trailer Breakdown: The Adventures Of Tintin
We investigate the first glimpse of The Secret Of The Unicorn

submit to reddit

Steven Spielberg. Peter Jackson. Edgar Wright. Joe Cornish. Daniel Craig, Andy Serkis, Jamie Bell, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Cary Elwes, Steven Moffat and John Williams. If the cast and crew of the new Tintin movie don’t get you a little bit hot under the collar, you may be living in the Antarctic. And if you’re a fan of the books, you’re already thrilled at the prospect of a big-screen outing for the boy reporter. So for those who are already fans, and those who don’t know a Tintin from a can-can (i.e. Americans), here’s a breakdown of what we can see in the new trailer

Meet The Dynamic Duo

Here we get our first glimpse of Tintin (Jamie Bell), the reporter / detective / adventurer (since you never actually saw him work as such) at the centre of our tales, and his stalwart companion Snowy (or, if you’re Francophone, Milou). Tintin’s intrepid and intelligent but not above the odd prat-fall or comedy double-take in the comics; that said, this trailer is rather more adventuresome than comedic. Snowy is also brave and often takes risks to get his master out of danger – chewing through ropes or attacking would-be attackers – but is often also a source of comic relief. He has a passion for digging up old bones, and for a weakness for a tipple, which often leads to drunken dog hilarity. WARNING: do not give your own dog alcohol. In real life, it’s less funny. And will get you arrested.

shameless double posting but i'd LOVE Williams to score the Tintin theme from the original cartoon show, but beef it up to an even grander scale, that would be class! More
