Showing more explosive footage, the new promo video for 'The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn' focuses on the protagonist's first adventure with Haddock.
New theatrical trailer for Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" has been debuted. Making its way out via Apple, the two-and-a-half-minute promo video is packed with more action scenes and stunning visual effects. This new trailer put its focus on Tintin's first adventure with his trusted pal Captain Haddock, with only a few footage featuring Thomson and Thompson.
Aside from releasing the new trailer, Paramount Pictures also unleashed a new poster for "The Adventures of Tintin". The fresh one-sheet sees the protagonist standing tall with a flashlight in his hand while his trusty dog Snowy accompanies him. He looks brave against the background of a stormy sea where an ancient ship is seen burning and nearly sinking.
Based on a comic book series by Belgian artist Herge, the movie revolves around Tintin's first encounter with Haddock and the discovery of a clue to the treasure of his ancestor Sir Francis Haddock. They set out to find it with protection from a prison escapee, who tries to get the treasure, as well as eccentric detective duo Thomson and Thompson.
This "Tintin" movie is produced by the "Lord of the Rings" helmer, Sir Peter Jackson. The voice cast features some notable English stars, including Jamie Bell as Tintin, Andy Serkis as Haddock, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as Thomson and Thompson, as well as Daniel Craig as Red Rackham. The animated movie will be released in U.K. on October 26 and in U.S. theaters on December 21.
