Ladybird:
I feel really ambivalent about the film. On the one hand I'm excited and hope that people who watch the movie will go and read the books. I think that it will be fun and probably entertaining. On the other hand I feel that a lot of the brilliant social and cultural commentary will be completely lost. Not to mention the fact that so many great books/moments/supporting characters will have to be cut just because of time constraints. There's my two cents!

I have mixed feelings about this film too, mainly just hoping they don't mess up and it's a hit. But I don't think the lack of social commentary will hurt the film considering the Unicorn album is one of the escapist/fantasy stories written by Hergé during the Nazi occupation of Belgium when he was careful to be non-political.

Yes you're right that the Unicorn/Treasure double header is escapist, but I'm just worried that some of the ones that contain more social and political satire like Picaros will be totally left out. Not that I don't love the ones I know that they are adapting (of course I love all Tintin that's why I'm here) but I know some of my favorite adventures won't factor into the film. I think one of the great things about Tintin is that it effectively uses so many genres and I don't think that you can get that kind of variety into three films.

Yeah, you're probably right about Picaros not getting adapted. The time gap doesn't help. But who knows? Maybe if they get a new directer for the third one, we'll see a more politically aware film.

In the meantime, here's a featurette with Spielberg, Jackson, Serkis, and Craig.

That was awesome! Very interesting. Damn it, I can't wait for the movie! I've been on tenterhooks about this for a year and a half now...

Which books were used in the movie The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn?

And is is true that there will be two more Tintin movies coming out? I heard Jamie Bell say something about two scripts already being written.
