The latest trailer for Adventures of Tintin is out — check out the bazooka mishaps, motorcycle accidents, and pirate weirdness that awaits the boy hero.

Also, the trailer mentions a mysterious object that "could have changed the course of history." The Tintin comics this film is based on — The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham's Treasure — were low on fantasy elements. Could the movie buck this trend? We'll see when it hits theaters in December 23, 2011.
