We’ve gone way too long without a Steven Spielberg-directed movie, especially if you are one of the many who prefers to overlook the crushing disappointment of 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. No, it wasn’t that bad. Until the aliens showed up.
Anyway, not only do we get two Spielberg-helmed flicks this year, but they’re actually both going to be in direct competition with one another. War Horse hits theaters on December 28, an adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s novel about a young man who heads off to World War I France to save his recently sold horse. A week before that we get The Adventures of Tintin, a mo-cap animated 3D adaptation of the classic French comic strip. Spielberg directed that one too, and Peter Jackson’s Weta Digital handled the eye candy. Jackson also produces.
We’ve only gotten glimpses of Tintin in pictures so far, but today brings the very first trailer. Watch it below, or visit Apple’s trailer page to view it in HD.
Paramount Pictures and Columbia Pictures Present a 3D Motion Capture Film The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn directed by Steven Spielberg from a screenplay by Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish. Starring Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, Defiance) as Tintin, the intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure, and Daniel Craig (Quantum of Solace, Defiance) as the nefarious Red Rackham.
