Peter Jackson going straight from directing 'The Hobbit' to 'Tintin 2'

Look alive, Tintin lovers! You won’t have too long(ish) of a wait for the The Adventures of Tintin 2. Peter Jackson’s Tintin co-producer Steven Spielberg tells Total Film that Jackson will not take a break between the two Hobbit films — which are being produced simultaneously — and the as-yet-untitled sequel. “We made a deal,” said Spielberg. “I said, ‘I’ll direct the first one, you direct the second one.’ Peter, of course, is going to do it right after he finishes photography on The Hobbit. He’ll go right into the…performance capture.”  READ FULL STORY

Steven Spielberg reveals 'Tintin' sequel details

Although The Adventures of Tintin hasn’t made much money in America, it’s been raking it in abroad. In fact, according to Box Office Mojo, it’s made over four times as much money in foreign sales as it has domestically. So it’s not surprising that, on a French press tour to promote the movie, filmmaker demigod and Tintin director Steven Spielberg was chattily bullish about the future of the franchise. According to Collider, Spielberg claimed that his co-producer Peter Jackson will start shooting Tintin Part Deux this year: “When he’s done shooting The Hobbit, he’ll begin his performance capture work with the actors later in 2012.” READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'Puss in Boots' walks all over 'In Time' and 'The Rum Diary' with $34 million debut

The box office had to contend with the World Series, a very early snowstorm in the Northeast, and Halloween festivities across the country this weekend, but audiences still managed to make it to the movies! That being said, grosses for new releases Puss in Boots, In Time, and The Rum Diary, weren’t all that strong. Check out how they performed below: READ FULL STORY

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.

Daniel Craig, Jamie Bell, and Steven Spielberg attend A-list 'Tintin' premiere in London

The only disappointing thing — if there even is one — about the upcoming CGI adaptation of The Adventures of Tintin, is that you won’t get to actually see the film’s stars Daniel Craig and Jamie Bell. Luckily, there are premieres to remedy that problem. Over the weekend, Craig, Bell, their fellow cast members (like Nick Frost and Simon Pegg), and those behind Tintin — including director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson — attended the movie’s premiere at the 55th BFI London Film Festival. Check out some of the photos from the event below: READ FULL STORY

New 'Tintin' trailer: Raiders of the Lost Barque?

I grew up in a Tintin-loving household, so I can’t help but be excited for the upcoming Adventures of Tintin film. However, it occurs to me that there is a sizable slice of the American moviegoing public that has never heard of the series. And those people were probably a bit confused by the first preview. So it’s probably no accident that the new trailer is much heavier on action, action, action! Actually, the trailer makes Tintin look a little bit like an Indiana Jones movie — but in a good, odd-numbered-Indiana-Jones way. There’s even a scene where Tintin and his soused sidekick Captain Haddock are riding in an old-timey motorcycle with a sidecar! Then Haddock tries to fire some weaponry at the bad guys, but fires in the wrong direction. (“Son, I’m sorry…they got us.”) Watch below: READ FULL STORY

Release dates moved up for 'Tintin,' 'War Horse,' and 'Mission: Impossible' 4

Christmas seems to be coming earlier every year, right?

It’s just a matter of a few days, but Steven Spielberg’s two holiday movies are moving up their release dates.

The Adventures of Tintin, based on the internationally beloved comics about a boy adventurer and his trusty dog Snowy, moves up two days to Dec. 21, while War Horse shifts from Dec. 28 to Christmas day. “After seeing the film, it became clear to us that War Horse is something audiences should be able to see when they’re together with their families on Christmas Day,” says DreamWorks spokesman Chip Sullivan. “They have the time to see multiple movies during the holidays, and we want to be one of their choices when they are most available.”  READ FULL STORY

Can Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and Harold & Kumar save 3-D?

It hasn’t been a great summer for 3-D cinema. For one thing, attendance in 3-D theaters is dropping — possibly because people are unwilling to pay the added surcharge, but more likely because American moviegoers have gotten tired of paying extra money for a darker image. More disturbingly, however, there was no breakout film this summer that absolutely demanded to be seen in 3-D: No panoramic How To Train Your Dragon, no neon-spectacular TRON: Legacy, not even a cheesy thrill-ride like Jackass 3D or Piranha 3D. The one film that actually seemed to justify the 3-D was Transformers: Moon over Memphis, and even that was ultimately undone by Michael Bay’s inability to stage giant-robot-action as anything more than digital robo-sludge.

Steven Spielberg has two movies in December. How will 'Tintin' and 'War Horse' match up to past double plays?

In order to be successful in modern Hollywood, actors tend to follow the “one for them, one for me” policy. If you’re a talented young actor, you’ll find yourself taking a role in a big Hollywood movie — a superhero film, say, or perhaps a Mission: Impossible sequel — but only so you can turn around and take a minimum-wage role in an arty indie film, or get the studio to finance your dream project about the life of your favorite boxer. Some actors get a bit lost on the “one for them” side (see: Nicolas Cage), and some actors’ dabbling with franchises have a disinterested, let-them-eat-cake indifference (See: Tom Hanks in the Dan Brown duet.)

But the policy applies to directors, too… and no director in Hollywood has a better track record of shifting between registers than Steven Spielberg. READ FULL STORY
