First Trailer for Tintin

The first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of The Adventures of Tintin, hit the Web yesterday. The director’s first animated film, it features the voices of Jamie Bell (Billy ElliotDefiance) as boy reporter Tintin, with Daniel Craig (Quantum of SolaceDefiance) as the pirate, Red Rackham and uses performance-capture technology (the actors’ actual movements are the basis of the computer-generated animation).

The film, the first in a planned trilogy, is based on the first two books in Belgian artist Georges “Hergé” Remi’s Tintin comic series, Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham’s Treasure and is a joint project between Spielberg and Peter Jackson, who will direct the second in the series.

It is scheduled for release on Dec. 23.
