The first trailer earlier this summer didn’t exactly excite fans nor did it draw in the casual audience who saw it and had no clue about the property. Having grown up on these books as my father worked for the publisher at the time, the Tintin books are hugely special to me and seeing this interpretation definitely is an adjustment, but it has a lot of potential. With the new trailer, it’s definitely giving off that whole Indiana Jones vibe and in a way, it’s exactly what it needs to do to draw the boys into the theaters to see it. Check it out below and sound off!
Plot concept: Combining the stories of The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham’s Treasure, the film depicts Tintin’s (Jamie Bell) first encounter with Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) and the discovery of a clue to the treasure of his ancestor Sir Francis Haddoque. They set out to find it with protection from a prison escapee who tried to get the treasure as well as Detectives Thompson and Thomson (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost).
