So there is a Tintin movie being made by Spielberg--the plot seeming to be The Secret of the Unicorn. I believe this was actually the first Tintin book I ever read--maybe the most popular, or widely known, or something?
Anyway, the official site is inexplicably down, so I can't see if there is a trailer.
However, on YouTube there seems to be a battle of the unofficial trailers.
The longest, and most impressive:
The action version (is the dude with the amulet supposed to be the Captain?):
And the quick, euro-car commercial version:
Seeing as about half of new films seem to be remakes these days, I kind of like the fan interpretation as a primer. I would be totally willing to see the first one as the actual look for the film. (I thought it was real as I started to watch it--shows how competent in French I am.) It's a nice take on the minimal realist style of Herge's artwork. I especially like the desert scenes; they look very much like the frames of the comic. Just improve Haddock's beard makeup a little bit, and we'd be good to go.
