After what seems like a lifetime of waiting, we’ve finally got our first glimpse of the Steven Spielberg-Peter Jackson collaboration, The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn. Empire Magazine has first dibs on photos from the film that will appear in its latest issue. The title character and his trusty sidekick appear on the cover, and a couple of the supporting characters appear on the inside. Take a look….

The cover photo features Tintin (Jamie Bell) and his dog Snowy, while the next one features Captain Haddock played by Andy Serkis. You can tell that Jackson really wanted to keep the casting in the family. Both Serkis and Bell have worked with him in previous films including Lord of the Rings and King Kong respectively.

The story of Tintin centers on intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure. As you can see it’s a 3D, motion capture epic that’s based on the famous comic strip of the same name. The cast also includes Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones, Mackenzie Crook, Carey Elwes and Daniel Mays.
