Paramount Releases First Poster for 'Tintin'

The Steven Spielberg-Peter Jackson collaboration hits theaters this December.

Paramount has released the first poster from The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, a collaboration between Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, who will produce (alongside Kathleen Kennedy). Spielberg will direct.

The poster shows star Jamie Bell in silhouette. The holiday tentpole will be released on Dec. 23 in 3D. It's based off the famous comic book series penned by Herge.

Bell stars as a globetrotting reporter who goes head-to-head against the villainous Red Rackham, played by Daniel Craig. Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook also co-star.

Sherlock creator Steven Moffat, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World director Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish wrote the screenplay. Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard also contributed writing the project.

Jackson's Weta Digital developed the performance-capture technology that Jackson will use when he directs the second film in the franchise.

Nick Rodwell, Stephane Sperry and Ken Kamins will also executive produce.
