Remember those Sunday mornings, when the first thing you did was watch cartoons on TV? Well, for some of you that might be ages ago, but for the rest; you know what we are talking about! A teenage boy, who is also a journalist snooping around for stories with his trusty dog, Snowy? What’s not to love?! Have you figured it out yet? The Adventures of TinTin is finally hitting the silver screens, and in 3D no less! :)
And for the very first time ever, you will be treated to watch Steven Spielberg’s animated directorial debut alongside producer, Peter Jackson. The big boys are at the helm of this movie, which means this will be one visually stimulating movie if nothing else! ;)
Based on the internationally beloved and irrepressible characters created by Hergé, the story follows the unquenchably curious young reporter Tintin (Jamie Bell) and his fiercely loyal dog Snowy as they discover a model ship carrying an explosive secret. Drawn into a centuries-old mystery, Tintin finds himself in the sightlines of Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine (Daniel Craig), a diabolical villain who believes Tintin has stolen a priceless treasure tied to dastardly pirate named Red Rackham. But with the help of his dog Snowy, the salty, cantankerous Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) and the bumbling detectives Thompson & Thomson (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost), Tintin will travel half the world, outwitting and outrunning his enemies in a breathless chase to find the final resting place of The Unicorn, a shipwreck that may hold the key to vast fortune… and an ancient curse.
