The much-anticipated film is set to be one of 2011’s biggest blockbusters. It marks the first in the series of 3D motion capture films based on the iconic character created by Georges Remi, better known to the world by his pen name “Herge”.
The script is based on three of Herge’s books and was written for the screen by Steven Moffat, Joe Cornish and Edgar Wright. Peter Jackson is producing along with Spielberg, who also directed the film.
Jamie Bell stars as the intrepid reporter Tintin who, along with his dog Snowy, gets involved in a search for sunken treasure with the drunken Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) and detectives Thompson (Simon Pegg) and Thomson (our very own NICK FROST). Said treasure belonged to notorious 17th century pirate Red Rackham (Daniel Craig), but clues surface hidden in old model ships that might just lead to that fortune…
The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn is out in the UK on October 26.
