Better "The Adventures of Tintin" Photos Emerge

One of the most anticipated projects in the industry right now has to be Steven Spielberg's motion capture feature "The Adventures of Tintin." Whether you know the character or not, as the release of the film comes closer, be prepared to hear the name a lot.

Tintin is the star of the famous comic strip created by French artist Georges Herge Remi, and the films will encompass three of the stories from the strip including "The Crab with the Golden Claws," "The Secret of the Unicorn" and "Red Rackham's Treasure."

A few photos leaked out recently from the film, showing off how great it will look, but they really didn't do it justice. Now, scans of three more photos from "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" have come out, truly showing how amazing this film would be. See them below.

Whether you know Tintin or not, the photos have to make any film fan excited, especially considering that Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson are both heavily involved in the production.

In the shots we see a first look at twin detectives Thomson and Thompson, the roles Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are set to play, as they question Silk, who is played by Toby Jones, a pickpocket with kleptomania who has been lifting wallets all over town. Another shows Barnaby, played by Joe Starr, delivering a warning to Tintin.

The most revealing shot and easily the coolest is the shot of the bunch which looks like a direct panel recreation from "The Crab with the Golden Claws," with Tintin and Haddock stuck in the Sahara desert after a plane crash.

While I am not the foremost expert on Tintin, just from the look of the characters and the settings, it's clear that Spielberg wants to be as respectful of the source material as possible, which is great for any big fan of the strip out there.

The cast of the film is truly fantastic, with Pegg and Frost joining Jamie Bell as Tintin and Andy Serkis as Haddock. This film is going to be something truly special, and from the looks of it will be one of the most interesting looking animated films audiences have seen in a long time.

The film is set to be released October 26, 2011.

    I'm assuming that this is a joke because those are stills from the 2007 film "Finding Rin Tin Tin," a movie about a dog.

    "The Adventures of Tin Tin" will likely focus on the boy reporter of the same name who, while owning a dog, is not one himself.
