One of the more enjoyable surprises of the recent Big Screen event here in London was the screening of some footage from The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn complete with an introduction from Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg.

In the introduction they talked of their love for the stories and characters (both looking, it has to be said, as if they were having the time of their lives) and we’re hoping for a good old-fashioned adventure from two masters of the form.

The high adventures of the bequiffed one and his furry sidekick looked phenomenal on screen with Hergé’s cast of characters rendered faithfully and brimming with life that to the voice talents of Jamie Bell, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and especially Andy Serkis as Capt. Archibald Haddock. Having Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish on board to script the film certainly can’t hurt its chances.

We’ve been given a new piece of concept art today and any new look at the film is fun to share, and it’s high time as the film is out here in the UK on the 26th of October.

Here’s the artwork, expect to see this one emblazoned with the film’s title and pasted onto the sides of buidlings across the land.
