Box office: 'The Adventures of Tintin' is off to a solid start in Europe

Adventures-TinTin

Tintin and Snowy may not arrive Stateside until Dec. 21, but the sleuthing duo has also made quite an entrance in three European countries.

Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin debuted in first place in France, the United Kingdom, and Belgium on Wednesday, grossing $4.7 million, $3.5 million, and $240,000, respectively, according to Sony Pictures. The film’s first day in France puts it on track for the biggest opening in that country besides Avatar.

The 3-D performance-capture movie is expected to perform much better overseas than in the United States, where Hergé’s comic strips aren’t nearly as well known. As a result, Paramount and Sony are releasing the film in more than 40 countries before it reaches America in hopes that stellar foreign results will boost awareness domestically.

    Europe loves crap.

      While I believe this movie isn’t that good, it probably has more to do with Tintin being an icon in Europe than Europe loving crap. But I guess you just love saying this kind of thing, just replacing America with Europe. I think I better stop feeding this troll.

      LOL loves crap. Wait, I mean Fast Five. Wait, same thing.

        Haha, I totally agree. I’ve been waiting for someone to post something like that.

      • LOL

        Then why didn’t you post it yourself Emily? I’ll tell you why, because you know Fast Five is an amazing film, and couldn’t bring yourself to type such nonsense.

    I just can’t get past how creepy the motion capture animation is. No idea why Spielberg is so gung-ho about it.
