Europe's #1 Movie

Before I stagger off to bed, here's my question: Does this newer trailer make you want to rush out and see the Boy Reporter?

I haven't made up my mind. But I suspect I'll be goggling at the Spielberg/Jackson collaboration at some point, although probably not wearing 3-D glasses. (Flat screen for me.)

This trailer doesn't particularly compel me to see the movie, but there are other trailers that do. There are longer trailers that show more without the annoying fadeouts between scenes. I did see it at a screening recently and thought it was a terrific piece of movie-making that could not have been done any other way or any better that resulted in such an amazing interpretation of the original comic albums. I was determined to watch it as a regular movie - not an animated movie, not a mo-cap movie, not a live action movie. Just a plain old movie and I thought it was pretty good. As a 3-D movie it was astounding. Familiarity with the original material is not necessary. I did go into it with a certain wariness toward Spielberg's directing, but I came away thinking only the team of Jackson and Spielberg could have pulled this off so well. It's way over the top, outrageously dazzling in its visuals, hilariously stunning in its absurdly choreographed camera moves, impressively assembled like a giant jigsaw puzzle with likable characters, great scenery and high octane action that makes for a very satisfying two-hour roller coaster ride through mayhem and delight. I think this will be a huge hit with huge legs and plenty of second and third viewings. Kids of all ages will have a real good time. I know I did.

The film is a curiousity--nothing more. Not particularly ghost--filled with zombie mo-cap, and not very compelling.

And it's not tracking well in the states.

These seems more like a "TV spot" to me than a trailer, and that's forgivable since TV spots don't tend to do as much that a trailer can on the big screen. The spot alone though certainly doesn't quite grab me as it should. They have to fit in the usual critic caption in there someplace while trying to balance between the slow and fast moments but it just doesn't quite mesh right.

If was live-action, I'd be much more inclined to see it. The humans look too uncanny valley, and I cant see past it.

Nice ad for gaming, as I kept expecting the ending to be about which platform it would be sold on for Christmas.

The perfect blend between Pirates of the Caribbean and Indiana Jones? Now Spielberg is quoting even HIS old movies, not just the serials which he stole from...er, ahem, "paid homage to" for the original Indiana Jones.

Good grief, Charlie Brown....

was there a need for this to be an 'animated' film? I think not....I agree with one of he above commenters, would have been better off as a live action flick.

The filmmakers have given plenty of good reasons why they made it like that. They wanted to keep the Herge style, while bringing it to a three-dimensional environment.

As a massive fan of Tintin, I am looking forward to it and the highly positive reviews make me even more excited.
