I wonder who's playing Calculus. IMDB doesn't say. (Surely he's in the film?) Hey, we have a Mrs Finch though! Well that settles it, we have Tintin's landlady cast, the movie will be a hit for sure now :P

Hi all,

Long time visitor...first post. 30 years as a geeky collector/fanatic.

The new Empire magazine (20th Anniversary, June 09 edition) has a fantastic article on the new film.

I’m assuming that you all have the cast, IMDB looks to have it right. 5 Page article (albeit with large photos). It mentioned Arabic-style sets and I wondered what was going on, but the explanation is in this article.

As it is the first film, they have chosen to include the moment Tintin meets Haddock in Crab With The Golden Claws: this is why Allan is in the film.

What I get from the article is that they are going for a "Film Noir" feel to the film, and that they are trying to mirror Hergé's storytelling and art, plus the work he put into characterisation.
Some of the photos are revealing too. There is a great photo of Jamie Bell and Andy Serkis in the CGI leotards that say "Haddock" and "Tintin" on them. Behind where they are sitting there are hundreds of Hergé drawings of the Thom(p)sons.
Grab a copy of the mag today!

Moderator Note: Hello and welcome, and thanks for posting at last - always a pleasure to have new voices on board!
You’ll find a general discussion of the Empire article under way in this thread (although nobody has précised it there as well as you have here!

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost mentioned as the Thompsons on this Spaced website.
Great news!

this issue had been discussed in subtle levels. But i had the fortuen to see TINTIN AND THE MYSTERY OF THE GOLDEN FLEECE and TINTIN AND THE BLUE ORANGES recently. jean pierre talbot was looking great as Tintin.
I dont know if any person over here has any vocie in the casting of the charachters of the new Tintin movie, or whether Spielberg is a memebr of this Community....just want to say that Jean Pierre Talbot SHOULD be given a role, at least a cameo appearance in the new tintin movie. After all he was the original chocie of Herge to portray Tintin.

So if anyone can get this fact to the attention of Mr. Spielberg- it would be great. And judging from the recent photos of Mr. Talbot- he can be considered for the role of Calculus (at leasdt thats my opinion).

Am I the only one who's worried about the fact that we've seen no mention of Calculus and who might be playing him so far? He's a major part of Red Rackham's Treasure and Tintin's world in general and I'd be really disappointed and confused if they don't include him. I don't see how they can't include him considering the next film is going to be Prisoners of the Sun.

Also, will someone voice Snowy in the film? Snowy is a pretty awesome character in the albums but he wasn't in the TV series. I wonder how it would work in a film?

It's very interesting skimming through this old thread to see that at one point Thomas Sangster was going to be playing the role of Tintin and Tom Hanks was going to be Captain Haddock. Granted we had to wait a long time but the time has come (for much of Europe at least).

How did the cast in The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn get their roles?
Did Steven Spielberg only get famous people to audition for the role? Was there an audition held?
