At last. The Tintinologists have been appeased.
Okay, non Tintin fans, I apologize for the overload.
However, breaking news must be given respect.
This was JUST released by Sony Pictures.
I present to you....... the very first Tintin trailer.
See teaser trailer after the jump.
I didn't realize until the end of the trailer that Tintin's eyes would have been a question that needed solving-- they are only black dots of ink in the books of course ;) However, I like what they went for.
And we finally see Tintin's face-- I think they did a good job. If you look close, you can see traces of Jamie Bell's face.
As well, I heard in an interview that they tried to be pretty neutral with Tintin's accent to avoid upsetting anyone-- a good move in this case-- and I like how it sounded. Jamie is perfect, of course. And you could still tell it was his voice, which I was happy about.
Note: Because this is not technically an animated film, it was all actually shot, using motion capture and blue/green screen. Thus, no need to say that the actors are "voicing" the characters-- treat it like it's live action.
Sorry. I'm a stickler for details like that.......
If anyone was interested in the film and wanted to read more, here's some linkage:
