'Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn' Gets a Date


Steven Spielberg-directed 'The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn' will unspool in U.S. just before Christmas 2011.

"The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" has finally got its release date. In their recent announcement concerning this family adventure movie, Paramount Pictures and Sony Pictures revealed that the first film of the "Tintin" planned trilogy will be arriving in U.S. theaters on December 23, 2011.

While being set to hit the U.S. market just days before Christmas, the movie will see international release around a month earlier. According to Variety, the international rollout will begin weeks earlier, starting from late October 2011. Sony will handle the continental Europe, Latin America and India, and Paramount are to distribute it in Asia, Australia, the United Kingdom and all other English-speaking territories.

On the reason of the early international release, Variety suggested that the decision was made because the studios believe the property shows stronger potential overseas than domestically. Slash Film also added that the property is a lot more popular overseas and that "the reception from European audiences and critics will be a nice transition for American audiences who aren't as familiar with the character."

"The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn" is a 3-D motion-capture feature inspired by the renowned character created by Herge. It stars Jamie Bell as the globetrotting young reporter named Tintin. In the film, his character will face off against the nefarious Red Rackham (Daniel Craig). Other actors include Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook.

Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish wrote the screenplay with Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy producing. Spielberg also serves as this film's director. The movie began filming officially in January and has been wrapped up after 32 days back in March.
