First screenshots from TINTIN released

Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg have released the first screenshots from their first Tintin movie, due in cinemas a year from now.

Hmm. Obviously this is early work, but at the moment there is a strong 'uncanny valley' feeling reminiscent of Robert Zemeckis's Polar Express. I must admit that I was expecting something more stylised and reminiscent of the original comics' art style. This kind of odd halfway-house between a CGI cartoon and realism seems unsatisfying.

Still, a long time before the film hits the cinema and plenty of time for them to do more work on the graphics.
