UPDATED: 'The Adventures of Tintin' Gets TWO Teaser Posters

Tintin, Herge's comic creation dating back to 1929, never really caught on here in the States, but the plucky, globe-trotting investigator and his dog Snowy are incredibly popular damn near everywhere else in the world.  For Tintin's first big cinematic outing, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson teamed up for not one, but two motion-capture epics.  The first, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, is directed by Spielberg and set for a December 23rd release in America, and a month or two earlier in most other territories.  The first teaser poster for the film debuted today, so take a look and get a feel for Spielberg's animated take on Herge's boy wonder.

The poster, which omits the Secret of the Unicorn in favor of establishing the character and style of the two films, premiered at Empire, where the teaser trailer will make its big debut tomorrow morning.

UPDATE: Aintitcool has graciously provided our first look at the domestic teaser poster.  Tintin and Snowy strike the same pose, but this time there's a foreboding atmosphere and a better look at the mysterious Unicorn.  Head over to AICN to see it jumbo-sized.

While Spielberg's Tintin is due this year, the Peter Jackson-directed sequel The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun is due in 2013.  Providing the voice and performance capture for the titular hero is Jame Bell, who also appeared in Jackson's King KongDaniel Craig, Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Mackenzie Crook stepped onto the motion capture stage for the film as well.  You'll notice that The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is written by Brits Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright, and Joe Cornish.  Moffat co-created and wrote for the excellent BBC series Sherlock, and contributed many episodes to Dr. Who.  Wright is the director and co-writer of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.  Finally, Cornish directed the already beloved, hugely acclaimed Attack the Block
