Director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson have teamed up for a motion-capture 3D collaboration in Paramount / Columbia / Nickelodeon’s The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn. The trailer for the widely anticipated film based on the globally loved books has pushed into the media vein seven months before the movie is set to premiere. Video lunch is served!

Notes Mashable, anticipation level is so high for the release of the film that even a fake trailer received over 60,000 views by telling viewers "Wait, don’t leave!" and then teasing them with a handful of images.

Per the official TinTin film site:
