The long wait is finally going to be over this December 2011 when Adventures of Tintin will make it to be big screen. The comic strip “Secret of the Unicorn” is going to be one hell of a ride for us Tintin affectiondos when it is released in 3D in cinemas worldwide. The technology, as seen from the just released teaser trailer, promises to bring great CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) to the big screen in 3D. It literally blurs the lines between animation and real life drama with such realistic imagery.
The movie is directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by Peter Jackson. The deadly combo are sure to give the world a taste of Tintin that has a huge cult following worldwide.
The movie is based on the comic strip Secret of the Unicorn and by the looks of the trailer, it seems to be following the storyline originally penned by Herge decades ago. But you never know with Spielberg who prefers to change the story to suite his movie.
Tintin fans worldwide are no less passionate about his adventures as one can find Star Wars fans. They are everywhere and love every bit of if, despite the comics being written in pre-word war II era.
The trailer gave a glimpse of all the major characters including Captain Haddock, Thomson and Thompson, Professor Calculus, Snowy and of course Tintin. Let’s see if they can live up to their comic fame on the big screen.
