Tintin teaser

It might not be immediately obvious from my messy line, but Hergé’s Tintin series is a very formative influence on me, and I have to admit I’ve been a little uneasy about the forthcoming movie adaptation. As a storyteller, Spielberg probably isn’t a bad match for Hergé, but the performance capture CGI animation just doesn’t seem quite appropriate for Hergé’s entirely outline-based drawing. But they’ve released a teaser trailer, and as well as The Secret of the Unicorn it seems they’ve worked in quite a lot of material from The Crab With the Golden Claws, Captain Haddock’s debut – particularly the seaplane sequence, which is one of the most perfect examples of comics storytelling I’ve ever seen. If they like the same stuff about Tintin that I like, then I’m feeling a whole lot less apprehensive about the project.
