Tintin fans have a reason to be happy. The movie adaptation of Georges Remi’s The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (3D), directed by Steven Spielberg, is just the first installment in a trilogy.
While Spielberg has co-produced the first with Kathleen Kennedy and Peter Jackson, the latter will helm the second. “I’m said to direct the second one. It also depends upon the success of the first one,” said Jackson. Spielberg, however, confirms saying: “I will be supporting Peter for the second one as much as he has done for me in the first one.”
Combining three stories from the existing 23 — The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicorn, and Red Rackham’s Treasure, the film depicts Tintin’s first encounter with Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) and the discovery of a clue to the treasure of his ancestor Sir Francis Haddock.
Releasing in India six weeks before the US on November 11, the movie takes the young Belgian reporter on his relentless pursuit of a good story that thrusts him into a world of high adventure.
