We’ve been through this before, trying to explain Tintin to the uninitiated. And we’ve noted, upon the release of the first teaser trailer, that this CGI flick involves Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright, and Joe Cornish, so the pedigree is hard to argue with. But they’ve released the full trailer for The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, and, well, you be the judge:
Some will like the look, but I would vote “creepy.” The Thompson Twins and Captain Haddock, in particular, look bizarre in three dimensions. And it’s still going to be a hard sell to North Americans who didn’t grow up with Tintin comics. Are you going to give this one a shot based on the people involved, even if you’re not a born Tintin fan?
