FROM STEVEN SPIELBERG AND PETER JACKSON

"How's your thirst for adventure, Captain?"

Tintin

The Adventures of Tintin

Release Date: December 21, 2011

From Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson comes a 3D motion picture event: an epic, globe-hopping quest that spans hidden mysteries, menacing criminals and ancient secrets—and brings to dazzling life the classic escapades that have enthralled generation after generation with their one-of-a-kind mix of action, humor and scintillating tale-spinning in The Adventures of Tintin.

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 sights of Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine (Daniel Craig, Munich), a diabolical villain who believes Tintin has stolen a priceless treasure tied to a 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.

From the high seas to the sands of North African deserts, every new twist and turn sweeps Tintin and his friends to escalating levels of thrills and peril, proving that when you dare to risk everything, there’s no limit to what you can do.

The film is directed by Spielberg from a screenplay by Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish. Produced by Spielberg, Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy, Spielberg is also joined on Tintin by his regular collaborators editor Michael Kahn and legendary composer John Williams.

Jackson's Weta Digital’s Oscar-winning visual effects team on the film includes senior visual effects supervisor Joe Letteri (Jurassic Park), visual effects supervisor Scott E. Anderson and animation supervisor Jamie Beard, along with art directors Andrew Jones and Jeff Wisniewski.

The Adventures of Tintin marked Spielberg's first animated feature as director, having been a life-long fan of the medium, and a producer of them in his own right on such films as An American Tail, The Land Before Time, and more.
