Most of the promotional efforts for The Adventures of Tintin have been focused toward the film’s October 26th UK release date. But, at the American release on December 21st draws near we are beginning to see more of the film ourselves. Which means my houseboy will have to go into the other room. This new trailer is for American eyes only. I’m sorry, Estebuul.

A lot of talent went into making this film. Steven Spielberg directed, Peter Jackson produced, with WETA building the impressive world in which the characters swashbuckle. All that, and a script from Joe Cornish (Attack the Block), Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright (Hot Fuzz). What’s your take on the trailer? Super-awesome or waxy-skinned and creepy?

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn opens in the UK in just a few weeks, and in advance of that opening, we have this new, action-packed trailer. Why didn’t anyone ever tell me that Tintin was so badass? I always saw the neat haircut and placid features and assumed it was a lame comic created by the church or something. I had no idea that there are pirate battles and guns and motorbike parkour. This thing is awesome and now I’m pissed that no one thought to mention it to me. Thanks for dropping the ball, everyone in my life.

I nominate Tintin to replace Harrison Ford at Indiana Jones.

Steven Spielberg is such a generous guy. He came all the way to San Diego Comic-Con for the first time in his career to present The Adventures of Tintin. American’s may not know Tintin as well as the Europeans, but we know what a Spielberg movie is. At a press conference in San Diego, Spielberg promised he made this movie for each and every one of us personally. Not many A-list directors are at our personal disposal.

{post-video postid=”219581″] “This movie I’m making for all of you,” Spielberg said. “Some I make just for myself. I do that sometimes when the subject matter is very sensitive and very personal. I really can’t imagine I’m an audience. I would lose myself too much if I thought of myself as an audience. There are other kinds of genre films I need to be able to make as an audience sitting right with you. Tintin is such a movie.”

So we may count on the Spielberg touch, but if we’ve never read Herge’s books, we’re still wondering what Tintin is and what’s so adventurous about him. Well, he’s a reporter who gets into trouble and has to find a way out. Here’s one example of such trouble, and also the unique approach to the characters in Tintin.

“Tintin does fall in a hole in our story but he gets out quick enough to allow the story to continue,” Spielberg said of a famous Tintin story he recreated on film. “So we don’t spend too long in the hole. There’s a lot of plot. Look at the Herge books. What makes it delightful [is] in the middle of that forward motion, we take time for the characters to have a relationship with each other. We take time for Capt Haddock to moan about what brought him to drink. In the first movie, we go back to Captain Haddock’s ancestors. We get to know a lot about why Captain Haddock is the man he is today. We’re very concerned with keeping the narrative moving because Herge was too, but in honoring Herge it was important to take the rest stops.”

The Adventures of Tintin opens this December.

‘The Adventures of Tintin’ Teaser Has A Whole Mess Of Danger

A bloody good new full-length U.K. trailer for Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever has dropped on the Internets. It’s refreshing to see a movie done entirely in mo-cap that doesn’t send chills down my spine. Spielberg and Peter Jackson may have solved the “dead-eyes” problem that has plagued so many previous mo-cap films **touches nose with one finger, points as Robert Zemeckis with the other** I’m now officially excited to see what looks like an exciting adventure story. If nothing else, that dog, Snowy, is damn adorable.

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever opens in the U.K on October 26, and in the U.S. on December 23. Hey Brits, don’t yell spoilers across the pond to us Yanks.

I figured that your eyeballs didn’t want to wait to see images from Tintin, Cabin In The Woods, and Fright Night 3D in motion. That’s why I’ve collected these assorted stills from each film for you to pour over. Please hang onto this link so that you may share with future generations. And be sure to go to theaters to see these stills when they are presented in a moving picture format.

This new still from The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn shows the title character hard at work trying to locate Waldo. Did you check behind the ferris wheel ticket booth? He likes to hang out back there sometimes. (Anamatie)

After being shelved during MGM‘s financial shitsplosion, Cabin In The Woods, the self-referential take on slasher films written by Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard, is finally ready to see the light of multiplexes. We don’t know when Lionsgate plans to release the Chris Hemsworth-starring film, but we know that at least one frame of it exists. That’s a good sign. (Bloody Disgusting)

6 photosImogen Poots

When a Fright Night remake was announced I kinda groaned and wondered why that particular tale needed to be told again. Then I saw the trailer and slapped myself a good one for ever having doubted it. I think it looks fantastic and early buzz from advanced screenings backs that up. Here are two new stills that show David Tennant in character as Peter Vincent, the Criss Angel-ized update of the character Roddy McDowall played in the original. You can tell he’s fully-equipped to kill vampires because there’s a decorative cross on his shotgun. Shotguns don’t normally need those. (Shock Til You Drop)

Simon Pegg Talks ‘World’s End’, ‘Tintin’, ‘M:I4′, And ‘Paul 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/simon-pegg-talks-worlds-end-tintin-mi4-and-paul-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/simon-pegg-talks-worlds-end-tintin-mi4-and-paul-2/#comments Fri, 17 Jun 2011 15:59:52 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=216638 Expect to see a lot of him in the next 'Mission: Impossible' sequel.

The post Simon Pegg Talks ‘World’s End’, ‘Tintin’, ‘M:I4′, And ‘Paul 2′ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Simon Pegg had dinner with a group of online journalists to promote the August DVD release of Paul. We’ll have more on Paul later, but Pegg shared a few tidbits about his next collaboration with Edgar Wright, The Adventures of Tintin, and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. As for Star Trek 2, he just reiterated what we’ve all been hearing –  that they’re aiming for a fall shoot.

A World’s End

The long awaited end of the trilogy begun with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz might not be a genre movie at all. “One thing Edgar and me have discussed, we’ve been away for a weekend and got things going, is that we’re not going to just do what we’ve done before,” Pegg said. “Even though we want this film to be like Shaun of the Dead times Hot Fuzz, we’re not the genre guys. I think people want to figure us out and they want to know who we are. That’s not it. So we’re not going to do okay, let’s do cowboys next. What Edgar and I are trying to do is fit in some writing time before I start Star Trek.”

The Adventures of Tintin

‘The Adventures of Tintin’ Teaser Has A Whole Mess Of Danger

Trailers for Tintin have come out and most audiences are still confused. It’s motion capture, it’s Belgian, but having played a character in it, Pegg says it’s all quite noticeably a Steven Spielberg movie.

“Yes, because you can feel his DNA in the way that it moves. I’ve seen some of it. Motion capture is more like directing live action because you are dealing with a 3D environment. You’re moving the camera around a 3D environment, but that 3D environment is digital. It’s not real. All the way that the camera moves, it’s Steven and you definitely feel that.”

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol

Suffice it to stay, Pegg has a bigger part in the sequel to Mission: Impossible III. “I had two days on Mission: Impossible III. That was it. I did seven months on the fourth one so yeah, I go back.”

Rumor has it Jeremy Renner is positioned to take over the franchise from Tom Cruise, but Pegg says it’s ambiguous. “It has been bandied around. Looking at the film as it is, I don’t think so. It’s anyone’s guess really. It certainly sets up a new IMF agent who can return and who is an Ethan level player. We’ll see. I honestly don’t know. It’s one of those things that there’s a lot of life in that story because it is a kind of Bond thing that you can just have iterations of different adventures and different teams and stuff. I can’t say really. I don’t want to give anything away. It’s another Mission: Impossible but it’s an evolution I think. There’s some great character stuff in it. There’s some incredible action.”

On the photos of Tom Cruise scaling the Burj Khalifa in Dubai:

Pegg got an even better view of that stunt. “He leapt out the window of the tallest building in the world and looked back in at all of us, this huge sh*t eating grin on his face. The guy’s a machine. It’s insane. He was like running like a spider along the side of the Burj Khalifa. I’m glad that was seen because I wouldn’t want anyone to watch the movie and not know he did that because he did do that. I was just feeling sick saying that. What are you doing you crazy bastard? Yeah, it’s going to be good.”

Pauls

‘Paul’ Looks Like A Kids Film With Lots Of F-Bombs

Pegg and Nick Frost actually have an idea for a sequel to Paul too. Like that other classic alien franchise, the sequel will just be plural. “Nick and I have this idea that we had out on the way to Area 51 that was really funny. It was like oh, this could be great. It would cost an absolute fucking fortune. If it involved more than on Paul, it would mean that we’d have to have twice that budget again. The idea was it was called Pauls. Again, it was like From Dusk Til Shaun, that title is so good we have to make that film.”

A big motivation for Pegg to do another Paul was he’d like to recreate the experience of traveling the country and working with American comedians in supporting roles. He promises he’ll still write a good script though. “I do have enough principles to stop me doing that just for the sake of it. It would have to be a good idea, but I’ve just been thinking about that recently. You ask yourself why you do what you do. It’s not for the reward. It’s for the experience, not the product.”

“HUGE” as in, you know, size.  Paramount, they of movie-making fame, have signed a contract with IMAX to have 4 of their upcoming movies shown on those giant screens that are so big that when you walk in the theater you’re like “whoa, this is a big screen.” This is great news for people who like their movies BIG, so big that a normal movie screen isn’t big enough to hold them. The 4 movies involved in the agreement, in ascending order of their presumable size, are: Super 8, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. It should be worth noting that of these 4 movies, Transformers and Tintin are being converted completely to IMAX, while Mission: Impossible will only have certain scenes in the format, which is how The Dark Knight was released. How J.J. Abrams‘s Super 8 is being released is being kept a secret, of course. All in all, it appears to be a good year for people who like big movies with colons in the title. (Film School Rejects)

Haha! Gotchu! You totally thought that since it was a mo-cap animal it HAD to be Andy Serkis. He's not in every mo-cap movie, ya know? But he is in this one, as Captain Haddock. You couldn't keep that guy away from a unitard with diodes on it if you tried. The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever doesn't come out until next Christmas, so check out the pics after the jump to get a taste.

First Look At ‘Tintin.’ Kinda Sorta. http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/first-look-at-tintin-kinda-sorta/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/first-look-at-tintin-kinda-sorta/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Here's something special for fans of slow torture. Empire has the first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's joint effort The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. And they're revealing it really effing slowly. The plan is to release a full image of Peter Jackson and WETA's postwork this week, but in the meantime, snippets of the image are being teased every few hours.  Currently, ten of twelve close-up images have been revealed but they give you a good idea of what the film's texture and realism. So, if you've ever wanted to see Tintin's Adam's Apple up close in an ornate frame, brother, I've got a treat for you. Check out the first look(s) after the jump...

The actor best known as James Bond is close to nabbing the part of Mikael Blomkvist in David Fincher's adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The film is the first in a three-part series based on the crime novels of Stieg Larsson, and Craig is expected to sign on for all three installments.Rumor has it that Brad Pitt was close to landing the role, but was "edged out" when a bikini-clad Craig showed up at David Fincher's house and offered to wash the director's car. Fincher filmed the wash, and was so impressed by Craig's physique the he offered him the job on the spot. True story. (Collider)

Peter Jackson Prefers Belgians to Hobbits http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/peter-jackson-prefers-belgians-to-hobbits/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/peter-jackson-prefers-belgians-to-hobbits/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 When Guillermo del Toro dropped out of the directors chair for The Hobbit, one replacement immediately came to mind: Peter Jackson. But Jackson seems dead set against directing the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy unless his presence is absolutely necessary.“If that's what I have to do to protect Warner Bros' investment, then obviously that's one angle which I'll explore.” This assumes that it’s even possible. He explains, “The other studios may not let me out of the contracts.” Currently, once such contract has Jackson directing the third installment of the upcoming Tintin series. Will Tintin, the tale of an effeminate, Nazi sympathizing Belgian and his little white dog, prove to be as lucrative as The Hobbit, the long awaited adaptation of one of the most popular fantasy books in history? Only time will tell. (CinemaBlend)
