What I saw of The Adventures of Tintin at Comic-Con got me interested in the flick, but between this flick and War Horse, Spielberg is really banking on his name carrying these movies at the box office (at least in their opening weekend).  They’re both set in the middle of a competitive December and neither one has big-name stars (Daniel Craig plays the villain in Tintin, but he’s motion-captured and his character looks nothing like him).  I don’t know how Tintin will do at the box office (my prediction is that it will flop domestically but kill internationally where people have actually read Serge’s Tintin comics [Correction: it’s Hergé, further proving that I am a person who has never read the comics), but I’m just hoping it’s a good, old-fashioned adventure flick.

17 new images from the film have landed online and while they give a sense of the tone, it’s crucial to see what motion-capture movies look like in, well, motion.  Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost.  The Adventures of Tintin opens in 3D on December 23rd.
