December 23rd The Adventures of Tintin opens in cinemas. The latest project by Lord of the Rings helmer Peter Jackson and the legendary Steven Spielberg.
Fans of the bequiffed reporter have had to content themselves with the books (brilliant as they are), the old cartoon series – repeat after me in prolonged US accent Her-Jays Advent-tures of Tan Tan and a few animated flicks.
we have the movie to look forward to. A number of reasons for this, another technological advance of motion capture, a fantastic cast featuring Jamie Bell, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Andy Serkis and Daniel Craig and a script by Steven Moffat, Joe Cornish and Edgar Wright. Excited much?
The marketing campaign has kicked in already – some brilliant posters were released and this trailer has just gone out on YouTube.
You had me at “They’re making a film of Tintin”. Seven months and counting.
