Empire has the first look at the upcoming Steven Spielberg-directed, Peter Jackson-produced 'The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.'

If you see the name "Tintin" and go Who?, don't worry, you're probably just an American. The original comic strip by Belgian artist Hergé, about a young globetrotting investigative reporter, his dog Snowy and his gallery of strange allies and enemies, remains iconic the world over, particularly in its native Europe. In fact, appropriate kudos should be handed out straight away to Spielberg and Jackson for attaching themselves to an interesting property that may prove a hard sell to North American audiences.

With kudos dispersed, let's take a gander at these new, fancy-schmancy images and pass immediate judgment on a project that is still a year away from release!
