The Adventures of Tintin Trailer: Spielberg Puts a Mo-Cap In Yo' Ass

Ladies and gentlemen, this is a terrible trailer. It’s not just the motion-capture animation style, it’s the content. It gives us very little, other than an alienating animation style. The trailer is kind of pointless — if this is the best tease they have to offer, there’s no point. If the full trailer (and ultimately, the movie) is much better than what is on offer here, then wait until there’s better footage available. This is going to turn folks off before the marketing can even gain steam. It’s a bad trailer, and the only thing that keeps me interesting in Tintin is what kept me interested before the teaser: Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright, Steven Spielberg, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Jamie Bell.
