The Peter Jackson/Steven Spielberg production of The Adventures of Tintin – The Secret of the Unicorn is coming shortly to theaters. In case you weren’t already aware, the technology used is called motion capture. It’s a hybrid between live action and animation. It’s still a very awkward format and there are parts as shown in the trailer that make us worry whether it will become a distraction. We loved A Christmas Carol (2009) but there too the character movements were unnatural. At any rate, The Secret of the Unicorn is a fabulous story and the directors/producers have a lot of street cred.
Watch the extended trailer of your favorite boy detective.
