There are Tintin comic books in my home. There’s a Tintin poster hanging on a wall in my house. But I will concede my general lack of knowledge. Mrs. Pajiba-hyphenate is a huge fan, although she’s certainly concerned about the big-screen adaptation, tackled by Messrs. Spielberg and Jackson. Here’s your first look, from Empire magazine.

Doesn’t tell us a lot, except that it’s motion capture, and as motion capture goes, it doesn’t look particularly exciting. But, the movie will do gangbusters in Europe, where Tintin is very popular, and will likely do well enough in America next year, if only because of Jackson and Spielberg’s presence.
