When I saw that Empire was running an exclusive photo from Tintin, I got excited. Because despite the enormous amount of talent involved in this movie — Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, Steven Moffat and on and on — most folks aren’t very keyed into it because it’s a motion-capture project, and those have been dodgy at best. We need to see a picture (or, better, some test footage) of Tintin as he’ll appear in the movie before becoming really interested. Because 1941 had an enormous amount of talent involved, too.

You can see the full photo at Empire, but yeah, this is just Jamie Bell and Andy Serkis in mocap suits with Spielberg (the nominal director) and Jackson (the ghost director) looking on. We need a little more to work with, guys. Howsabout some character shots?
