Steven Spielberg’s mo-cap madness aka “The Adventures of Tintin” opens December 28, 2011 in theaters everywhere. It’s really surprising how many big names have taken such a liking to mo-cap animated movies. I’m not the format’s biggest fan, and honestly, these five clips don’t change my mind. Then again, Spielberg and guys like Robert Zemeckis really love this stuff, and they certainly know what they’re doing so maybe it’s up to us to catch up to them. Right?
Paramount Pictures and Columbia Pictures Present a 3D Motion Capture Film “The Adventures of Tintin” directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay by Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish. Starring Jamie Bell (“Billy Elliot,” “Defiance”) as Tintin, the intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure, and Daniel Craig (“Quantum of Solace,” “Defiance”) as the nefarious Red Rackham.
Mo-cappin’ work from Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones, and Mackenzie Crook.
