Will 2011 be the year Steven Spielberg is no longer given a free pass from fans and critics? It would seem so. The early trailers for "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" were not widely embraced and we were surprised by the blowback the first spot for "War Horse" got. Well Spielberg still has some time to right the ship on both movies and we're only at the beginning of the campaigns for both, but this new look at 'Tintin' won't quiet the dissenters.

Will 2011 be the year Steven Spielberg is no longer given a free pass from fans and critics? It would seem so. The early trailers for "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" were not widely embraced and we were surprised by the blowback the first spot for "War Horse" got. Well Spielberg still has some time to right the ship on both movies and we're only at the beginning of the campaigns for both, but this new look at 'Tintin' won't quiet the dissenters.

Animatie revealed the new pic of Tintin and Snowy, and for those bothered by the mo-cap animated look of the movie, this will just add more fuel to the fire. Starring Jamie Bell, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Andy Serkis, Mackenzie Crook, Tony Curran, Daniel Mays, Sebastian Roche and Gad Elmaleh the film combines the stories found in "Le secret de la licorne" and "Le trésor de Rackham Le Rouge" and was adapted by Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish and Steve Moffat in what should be a rousing epic.

So will this be a dead-eye CGI miss or the international blockbuster studios are hoping for? Time will tell. The film hits Europe on October 26th, before getting a U.S. release on December 23rd -- check out a bigger version of the pic below.
