The marketing campaign for Steven Spielberg's presumed Oscar favorite 'War Horse' may have been going smoothly from the start, but the same can't be said for Spielberg's other holiday entry 'The Adventures of Tintin.' The initial trailers and posters for the motion-capture flick were a bit inscrutable thanks to some awkward dips into the uncanny valley and a source material mostly unknown to American audiences. Thankfully, things have changed for the better in this new UK trailer for 'Tintin,' which highlights an Indiana Jones-y spirit of adventure that Spielberg hasn't shown since 'Catch Me If You Can' in 2002. Might this actually be completely awesome? It might! Watch ahead.
