Watch: Amusing Fan-Made 'The Adventures of Tintin' Opening Credits
Time for something fun! Thanks to numerous updates on Awards Daily, there's lots to talk about regarding Tintin. First up, we have a fantastic new fan-made opening credit sequence for Steven Spielberg & Peter Jackson's The Adventures of Tintin that is fully graphic animated and totally awesome. It's made by James Curran (via Vimeo) and is an "unofficial" title sequence that features elements from each of the 24 books, using music from the TV series by Ray Parker & Tom Szczesniak. If you didn't already hear, Tintin is also getting some rave reviews out of the UK, including one from Empire and a few others from the trades.
Our friends at Awards Daily also have the best quotes pulled from Empire and Variety/Hollywood Reporter, who've called it a "visually dazzling adaptation" with "immense sensitivity" and a "delirium of creativity."
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg, produced by Peter Jackson with a script co-written by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish. The cast includes Jamie Bell as Tintin, Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock, Simon Pegg & Nick Frost as Thompson & Thompson, Daniel Craig as the villain Red Rackham, and Toby Jones as Silk. The animated movie, in the works at Weta Digital, will hit US theaters in glorious 3D starting on December 21st, just before Christmas this winter. You can watch the first US teaser trailer for Tintin here and the latest international trailer, as that's all we've seen.
