The recreation of the iconic Tintin and Snowy shot looked a bit odd to my eyes, but like you guys say, it's still a year away, and with a demanding Spielberg chivvying Weta on much like Cameron did with Avatar, I expect it will look much better in motion.


Agreed. I'm sure the final thing will look pretty decent. I remember seeing an early promo for Zemeckis' A Christmas Carol and thinking it looked a bit crap then when I saw it in theatres I was actually impressed by how decent it looked. So fingers crossed.

People underwhelmed by these shots arenít going to be appeased by the additional ones in the magazine either! Personally, I think itís shaping up very nicely and am really excited about it! [:)]

I think Tintin is one of those films that everyone will suddenly pretend they always liked if it actually turns out to be good.[:D]

I think this looks shit.  I wasn't paticularly looking out for tintin & had no interest in it.

I thought it was going to be a straight live action film. What do we get, crappy souless cgi that looks no better than 'The Polar Express'.

It'll be interesting to see how much they'll clean up ol' Haddock's cursing huh? It's a big part of the character, well at least it used to be before everything had to be politically correct. Don't get me wrong, a considerable amount of the viewpoints and the general outlook of the Tintin films will have to be updated somewhat, the racist elements have to cut out etc. But goddamnit, Haddock has to swear like the sailor he is.[:D]
Anyway, as I mentioned earlier in this thread I'm looking very much forward to these films as a long time fan of the comics and the considerable talent behind the adaptation doesn't hurt.



The whole 'racist' thing annoys me (and this isn't directed at you), sure Tintin in the Congo is racist, hell its even got Tintin skinning a monkey and wearing it but ultimately its shit. However, the other books aren't, I'm pretty sure Herge made a conscientious decision to make sure he researched the different cultures, and places he wrote about. Okay, the depiction of the Japanese in The Blue Lotus was somewhat stereotypical. It just annoys me when people go Tintin is a racist, or weirdly, he's a Nazi. Eh?

Anyway, Tintin is great and much better than Asterix.

I'll love to see The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun on the big screen. They could do The Blue Lotus with Tintin in Tibet, although they would have to change The Blue Lotus a little bit. The Black Island is a good one, also The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham's Treasure. Hopefully, they won't do Flight 714 which was a bit too ridiculous and The Castafiore Emerald which is a snooze fest.



No Way[:o] What are you smokin!




shool -> RE: Tintin (8/11/2010 10:48:41 PM)

Pics look fine and I'm still looking forward to this.

I'm not sure what the nay sayers expectations were.




pete_traynor -> RE: Tintin (9/11/2010 12:05:52 PM)

Iím with you and really excited for this. I think however that there may have been some confusion when they started throwing the old Ďphoto-realisticí chestnut about the place. I never once assumed the characters would be, or intended to be, real looking. I think it may be the world they inhabit that they are referring to. The pictures in the new Empire certainly point to this, the environments are incredibly convincing. But I suppose photo-real environments are hardly ground breaking at this point. Regardless, I think it looks great and canít wait for it. If Spielberg captures that Raiders globetrotting adventure magic here, it will be fantastic!

Yeah, this is pretty spot on. They were always going to look like more realistic versions of the Herge characters. Otherwise they'd have just shot in live action.




jobloffski -> RE: Tintin (9/11/2010 7:15:10 PM)

The end of my post from the Movie News Thread in which the pics from the film are getting a kicking...



...re the criticism of the the stills, holy shit, dudes they're stills, maybe in motion and with character voices audible the point of using big name actors will be more obvious, ie the nuances of the facial movements they've animated on top of should be more obvious at least?

Take a still from moving footage and you can easily get shots that can look 'unnatural' since they aren't posed single shots and all kind of proportions shenanigans can seem to be going on, when they really aint at all.

Got no plans at the moment to actually see Tin Tin at all, but judging by the reactions so far, some people seem to be reacting like Jackson and Spielberg are personally pissing in their eyes [:D]

Dunno. If they want a fully faithful version, there's that Canadian animated series from the 90s which did most of the stories. If they want live action, it's a pretty badly kept secret it would look pretty much like that. I'm concerned it will be distracting like Beowulf, but the technology has advanced since. I wait to see this in motion in a trailer.

This is one of my top guilty pleasures so I could live with that! [:D]
 
But itís using far more advanced technologies (Avatar tech) so it should look great in motion. Say what you will about Avatar but the mo capped facial expressions were pretty staggering and there was nay a dead eye in sight. Anyone proclaiming otherwise is merely being contrary and rather dismissive of what Weta and co pulled off in those shots.

This will look lovely in motionÖ have faith people! [;)]

Nah, the motion capture was good.

Drew_231 -> RE: Tintin (5/1/2011 7:28:32 AM)

Thing is, the more I look at these pictures, the more I like them.

The desert scene, and the close up of Haddock are incredibly good.But it has beens aid numerous times before that we need to wait to see the finished product to properly judge how successful it looks.

For now Im very excited, probably my most anticipated movie for this year




crimond -> RE: Tintin (6/1/2011 12:53:22 PM)

I'm really looking forward to this.  I was always more of an Asterix fan while my brother got the Tin Tin books, still loved to read them though.

However, I always felt the cover sold a more exciting story than was actually in the comics.

Likewise, hoping to see the teaser trailer soon

*Just seen it, trailer looks fantastic




DONOVAN KURTWOOD -> RE: Tintin (17/5/2011 9:56:27 AM)

The trailer looks just incredible. As a lifelong Tintin fan i was expecting to hate this, but the trailer has absolutely nailed it for me. I'm really excited about this movie now.




DONOVAN KURTWOOD -> RE: Tintin (17/5/2011 9:57:38 AM)

Those posters are glorious too, i want them!




Beno -> RE: Tintin (17/5/2011 12:48:33 PM)

I was a childhood fan.

My children were fans.

This is going to be sooooo great. Colour me genuinely excited.

porntrooper -> RE: Tintin (17/5/2011 1:34:38 PM)

I'm just going to post my thoughts from Movie News Thread here, as Movie News appears to be where crazy happens.

Anyway, anyone noticed the difference in the two versions? 2nd version doesn't end with Daniel Craigs voiceover, but with Jaime Bell again. Plus the text is different, something about an 'adventure like no other' or some such.

Am guessing they've realeased an International and Domestic version, not sure why. But if I had to guess, I'll say the Daniel Craig sign off of "Who is this boy?- It's Tintin" is for the US Domestic market as a very brief intro to the character.

Anyway, I haven't been able to get excited about Tintin at all. The only thing that has really given me hope is the talent involved. The teaser is all very fine, but it still has a really hollow dead eye feel when it lingers on one shot too long - I think it's most apparent in the shot of The Twins behind the paper. It's a really nice shot in general, with the brush/plunger on the upside down paper standing in for the nose and 'tach of each fella. But the eyes through the paper look empty, and the hats look freakishly high off the head given the position of the eyes. It's a really small nitpick, but in this kind of mo-cap film it really drags you out in a way that doesn't happen with traditional animation. I mean, Wall-E's mechanical eyes gave across more emotion than any mo-cap film I've seen. It doesn't look like a huge improvement on A Christmas Carol, which I enjoyed, but often found myself looking directly into a characters eyes and getting freaked.

Anyway, it's a nice enough teaser but it hasn't done enough to remove all the doubts I have about this one.

One more thing, the score in the teaser is ace. Anyone know what it is, or is it partof Williams' new score??





threshold -> RE: Tintin (18/5/2011 1:14:06 AM)

EFF!!!!
The trailer as just blasted all other trailers out of the water!!!
John Williams score is perfection, as is animation and casting.
As with porntrooper, I AM LOOKING FOR THE SCORE!!!! SOUNDS JUST BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!
ARGHARHHGAHEIf
can't wait!!!

Likewise, a Jackson/Spielberg co-production with a good cast is interesting but even being a Tintin fan as a kid this has failed to grab me. The teaser has some really nice looking imagery on show but I also question the mo-cap thing considering the environments are all CG - human mo-cap characters still suffer from the "dead eye" thing IMO. However Tintin may be less distracting than Robert Zemekis' efforts over the last decade as the characters features aren't modelled on the actors playing them, they have the look of the Herge characters so maybe as they look retro and kind of weird anyway the eyes won't be a distraction.




TeeDee -> RE: Tintin (19/5/2011 10:21:27 PM)

I've heard a lot of complaints about how it looks like Polar Express or whatever, but their point is for it to look like the comics. If they wanted it to look absolutely realistic then they would have just done it live action..... anyway I think it's looking great and I'm thrilled about Jamie- he's the perfect Tintin. Hope is face looks better than it was in the trailer, though. That was my only doubt.....

Can't wait for another trailer though.




threshold -> RE: Tintin (20/5/2011 2:44:51 AM)

For people complaining about the polar express look.
Try and look for the live action version. See how terrible it is.
Now the polar express look ain't looking so bad....
Btw it looks better than Polar Express.

Plus the fact the trailer looks AMAZING, is very good.
Anyone know whether Professor Calculas is in the movie?
Also, anyone know where to find the music from the trailer????

Im finding it quite odd that there has been no mention of Calculas as being in the film (I dont think there has been any mention of anyone cast in the role).
And Im pretty sure the music is part of John Williams score for the film

With regards to motion capture. Im not a huge fan of the thing, and I have yet to see anything by Robert Zemekis to justify his love for it. However, if there ever was a project that deserved mo-cap, its the Tintin film. You cant do a live action Tintin, it doesnt work (as Threshold said, go look at some stills from the original live action movie). Motion capture, in an advanced stage, seems to be the perfect way of capturing an actors unique preformance, while maintaining the look of the characters. Everyone against it is refrencing The Polar Express, but dont forget the Gollum was motion captured, and the technology used for that is the same being used on Tintin. Im perfectly happy with the way the film is  looking so far, and it can only get better in the build up to the release




threshold -> RE: Tintin (20/5/2011 9:18:17 AM)

^Completly Agree on the Gollum remark

That's because he's not in the film.
