Blistering Barnacles! After months of anticipation, we’re finally getting a peek into one of the most iconic beloved comics from our childhood: Tintin! Originally created by Belgian cartoonist Georges Remi, aka Herge, Tintin has gone on to become one of the most well-known characters of all time, especially in Europe and around Asia where his popularity is beyond compare.
The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn stars Jamie Bell 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 (Nick Frost). The movie is a collaboration between directors extraordinaire Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson who team up to bring the first film in a planned trilogy based on the classic comic book character of Tintin.
