The Adventures of Tintin gets a dynamite domestic trailer and moody poster.

The poster came from Drew McWeeny's HitFix (click to 'embiggen'), so credit where credit is due.  What's best about this trailer, aside from the overall quality of what is shown, is the implication that Steven Spielberg and Paramount are in fact holding back the really good stuff for actual ticket-buyers.  I'm not one to speak about 'American Exceptionalism' and/or 'Manifest Destiny', but I do take great umbrage at Paramount's decision to open this one in Europe two months before we Americans get to sample it.  I get the concept.  The characters are far more popular in Europe and other foreign markets than they are in America, so Paramount wants to use the likely overseas success to build word of mouth and positive reviews.  But skimming the rave reviews that have already come out while knowing we still have two months to wait is the rare sort of thing to make me openly whine about 'America First!' and all that silliness.  We're Americans after all, so we expect instant gratification!  Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's The Adventures of Tintin: We want it NOW!
