New 'Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn' Trailer Released: Classic Cartoon Comes To Life

This December, Steven Spielberg will have two very different holiday films: A heartbreaking horse drama and a classic cartoon recast.

No disrespect to the beauty of "War Horse," but if you're looking for a little more bang for your buck, Spielberg has a movie for you, too.

In "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of The Unicorn" uses advanced motion capture technology to tell its newest story. Here, the boy hero and his trusted canine companion traces the legacy of a mysterious piece of parchment, battling henchmen and Indian Jones-esque mishaps along the way.

Check out the newly released U.K. trailer. The word you're looking for is "sick."

"Tintin" hits theaters December 21.
