The hype about The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is based around three things. One, this sort of action adventure is perfect for Steven Spielberg in an Amblin sort of way. Two, the comic is about as big as anything coming out of Belgium has any right to be besides waffles. Three, it’s a scientific fact that people love movies with ten-word titles.

Up until now, it’s all been hype because little is known about the project except who’s starring in it, the story line, that it’s mo-cap, and another book or so of comments from Spielberg and Jackson about the project. However, we haven’t seen anything from it until today.

Tintin, meet the world. The world, meet Tintin.

There’s something flat about the pictures. Yes, they’re static images, but there’s a spark missing from them. Plus, Snowy is definitely albino Scooby Doo. The face is almost exactly the same.

The film, which is being filmed for 3D, will undoubtedly look epic in scale, and the amount of detail they are putting into the landscaping is pretty staggering, but these images look almost bland. Like the best possible CGI from 2005.
