31 December 2010 1:17 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Instead, we have three new very random stills from the movie which SlashFilm found on SpoilerTV. They are available in high res - so click on to delve into them further. Seen below (top down): Silk (Toby Jones) with the Thompson twins (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost), Tintin (Jamie Bell) pointing a gun at Barnaby (Joe Starr) and Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) out in the desert.

Besides the fact that we love them, all these things enter into our list of the wittiest, most shocking, and awe-inspiring quotes from Hollywood’s best and brightest this past year.

Hi-Res Images From Spielberg’s ‘The Adventures of Tintin’

31 December 2010 5:21 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

If anyone can turn a franchise largely unknown outside of Europe into a Stateside crowd-pleaser, it would Steven Spielberg. /Film brings us some beautiful high-resolution frames from the Peter Jackson-Spielberg motion-capture 3-D collaboration, The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn. We’ve already seen a few pics, and it looks like Spielberg and company have managed to largely avoid that freaky Uncanny Valley effect. (And I know some of you out there were kind of turned on by Zoe Saldana‘s Neytiri in Avatar… but, uh, no comment other than – go to a bar and talk to a girl.)

So here we go – Tintin (Jamie Bell) and Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis, thank God), stuck in a desert for reasons that will be probably be made clear once we have an actual trailer. (Although don’t hold your breath – on Saving Private Ryan, the DreamWorks marketing people had to »

Movie Stills: The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn

30 December 2010 3:20 PM, PST | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

Film blog FilmFilia.com recently scored some images of the upcoming animated comics adaptation flick, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.

On paper, this movie appears to be gold. From the top down, it’s directed by Stephen Spielberg (his first digitally shot film), produced by Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings movies), penned by Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Shaun of the Dead) and stars the likes of Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg and Daniel Craig.

Spielberg’s take on Tintin should be interesting; it’s been said that he’s a fan of the series for a long time.

You can see Tintin in theaters when it releases on December 23, 2011.

New 'Adventures Of Tintin' Photos Arrive Online

30 December 2010 8:46 AM, PST | MTV Splash Page | See recent MTV Splash Page news »

From "Thor" to "Green Lantern" and everything in between, 2011 is most assuredly an excellent year for comic book movie fans. But it's not all capes and tights clogging up theaters next year — comics fans can get their non-superhero fix in the form of "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn," the motion-capture 3D picture from director Steven Spielberg and producer Peter Jackson.

Some new images from "Tintin" have arrived online courtesy of Filmofilia (via Spinoff Online), showing the iconic Georges "Herge" Remi-created character in a variety of high stakes situations.

The first image depicts a massive desert landscape where Tintin (Jamie Bell) and his best friend and fellow adventurer Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) set off to discover a hidden treasure of his ancestor Sir Francis Haddock. The duo's search is assisted by a prison escapee who has an interest in the treasure, all while Detectives Thomson and »

High-Resolution Images from Steven Spielberg’s Tintin

30 December 2010 8:31 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

2011 will bring us not one, but two Steven Spielberg films. December 23rd brings us the 3D motion-capture family film The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, and just a week later on December 28th, Spielberg’s World War I film War Horse will be released. A month or so ago, we brought you the first look at images from Tintin, and today we’ve got some hi-res versions of those images. Tintin stars Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost. Based upon the popular comic strip by Hergé, the film chronicles Tintin’s first encounter with Captain Haddock and the discovery of a clue to the treasure of his ancestor, Sir Francis Haddock. The first in a planned trilogy of films with partner Peter Jackson, Spielberg shot Tintin using the same 3D motion-capture technology that James Cameron used on Avatar. If this Tintin film does well, »

The (Dis)comfort of 3D... Should We Get Used To It?

27 December 2010 2:58 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

More and more frequently, the content of a film, the director or the cast is becoming less of a priority. Instead, the phrase "In mind-blowing 3D" has become the tagline norm just as much as the wit on display when marketing execs decide "Slow justice is no justice" is fitting for the 2D fare. I, as should all of us, blame James Cameron.

As innocent as Cameron's effect on cinema may have been, thanks to him and Avatar, not only was it proven 3D is an alphanumeric acronym for "Show me the money!" but it also brought along the idea 3D wasn't simply a tool for less-imaginative helmers. And by the way, I think Cameron realizes this.

Would Martin Scorsese have ever said, "Why couldn't a film like Precious be in 3D? It should be," if it wasn't for Avatar? Scorsese's statement was made in early March 2010, right around the »

‘Little Fockers’ opens soft, ‘True Grit’ opens strong, ‘Tron: Legacy’ flounders.

26 December 2010 12:44 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Scott Mendelson

hollywoodnews.com: I remember being genuinely shocked at the success of Meet the Fockers back in Christmas 2004. It had been well over four years since the original and, box office aside, it wasn’t a film that cried out for a sequel. I figured that no one cared, that it had been too long since the original, and that the sequel would do token business but no more. For the second time in 2004, I was dead-wrong. Twice that year, sequels that didn’t have all that much pre-release buzz around them exploded out of the gate and kept going for the next few months. The other was Shrek 2, which opened out of nowhere on the pre-Memorial Day weekend to $108 million over three days and $128 million over five, to end up winning the year with an astonishing $441 million. Meet the Fockers grossed $46 million over the three-day portion »

Christmas Movies on Basic Cable: Where to Find the Good Stuff!

24 December 2010 8:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Cinematical, Best and Worst, Holiday Movies

Few holidays bring out the movie fans like Christmas. (Halloween is probably a close second; Arbor Day comes in third.) Mostly everyone has time off to relax, but not enough time to really "watch" a movie -- and that's where your basic cable channels come in handy. You don't have to worry about raunchy words, the commercials are there to remind you that the cake needs to be iced, and let's face it: there are lots of great Christmas movies out there.

So here's who's showing what and when! Happy Holidays!

TBS begins its 24-hour 'A Christmas Story' marathon, which is very quaint and all if you need something in the background while you're basting a turkey -- but if you really want to appreciate Bob Clark's holiday classic, you should break out the DVD or blu-ray. The marathon »

Check out the first trailer for action thriller Hanna starring Saoirse Ronan

23 December 2010 4:04 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Saoirse Ronan has been building quite a name for herself since bursting onto the scene with her Academy Award-nominated supporting turn in Atonement (2007), following this up with roles in Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones (2008) and Peter Weir's soon-to-be-released WW2 epic The Way Back (2010). The young Irish actress will next turn her hand to action, reuniting with Atonement director Joe Wright for the adventure thriller Hanna, which has just received its first trailer earlier this week.

Ronan stars as the titular Hanna, a 14 year-old who has been raised by her father (Eric Bana), an ex-cia spy, to be a the perfect assassin. After completing her training, Hanna is sent out into the world on a dangerous mission, journeying across Europe while eluding hostile agents dispatched by a ruthless intelligence agent (Cate Blanchett). Also featuring in the cast are Tom Hollander (Valkyrie) and Olivia Williams (An Education), while Brit dance »

Distant Relatives: Metropolis and District 9

23 December 2010 3:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Robert here, with my series Distant Relatives, where we look at two films, (one classic, one modern) related through a common theme and ask what their similarities and differences can tell us about the evolution of cinema.

Upstairs/Downstairs

They tell bird owners to avoid putting your new pet in one of those high hanging Tweety-bird cages.  See, if the bird spends most of his time positioned above you, he'll develop a sense of superiority and will be impossible to teach and train.  Just in case the overworld/underworld concept started to seem like a common and cliched metaphor, it doesn't hurt to remember that it's a fact of nature. Those who are above see themselves as greater than those who are below.  And if it transcends animal species here on Earth then why not throughout the universe?  Which is why it makes so much sense that the aliens of »

MGM Emerges from Bankruptcy; James Bond 23 Discussions Underway

23 December 2010 9:28 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The future of one of the largest media companies in the world, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Inc. (MGM), was uncertain for much of 2010 as the studio struggled under a crushing debt and a takeover bid from Lionsgate Entertainment. In order to protect its library of more than 4,100 TV and movie properties, MGM filed a Chapter 11 petition in U.S. Bankruptcy Court early last month that would reorganize the company by trading equity in the new MGM to its lenders in exchange for dissolving its $5 billion debt.

Earlier this week, it was officially announced that the studio has emerged from bankruptcy with $500 million to run the new MGM and the rights to its library—as well as to its Leo the Lion mascot and logo—intact. As expected, Spyglass Entertainment's Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum took over control of the studio as co-chairmen and co-CEOs. MGM plans to make six movie a year »

Retrospective: Oscars 1998

23 December 2010 8:21 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Alfred Hitchcock famously quipped that the three things you need to make a good film are a “good script, a good script and a good script.” In February 1998 however the Academy voters decided to ignore these pearls of wisdom, much like they ignored the achievements of Hitchcock himself, when they chose to reward Titanic with a Best Picture win despite the film lacking a screenplay nomination.

This was the first time this had transpired in over thirty years and pretty much confirmed the idea that Titanic was being praised as a spectacle even though it has been proven time and time again that any spectacle without the benefit of good storytelling is only impressive until the next spectacle comes along. L.A. Confidential on the other hand which is as fresh and watachable in 2010 as it was thirteen years ago compliments the quote that “good storytelling never goes out of fashion. »
