Earlier this week, images from Steven Spielberg's Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn hit the web. Here are some more shots from the film, including our first look at Nick Frost and Simon Pegg's hapless detective duo, Thomson and Thompson.

It's a safe guess that these are from Empire magazine's November issue, which is running a feature on the film:

Here's a look at the illustrated version of that famed desert shot from The Crab with the Golden Claws. Seeing Thomson and Thompson is great, and I'm looking forward to getting some more obscure Tintin characters. Fingers crossed for the wrong number-prone Cutts the Butcher (even though he doesn't debut until later in the Tintin tales).
