Three More Random High Def 'The Adventures of Tintin' Photos

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

I'm surprised we haven't seen a trailer for Peter Jackson & Steven Spielberg's upcoming CG animated The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn yet, as it arrives in theaters exactly a year from now, but I'm sure they're waiting for the right time. 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. As a recap, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn was directed by 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, »

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, »

We're still waiting to see a trailer for The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, which is the ground-breaking team-up between directors Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson. We've seen a few [1] images [2], and now there are high-res versions of three of them. So you can see all the minute detail that is going into the mo-capped 3D film. These images were originally in Empire, and they show Tintin (Jamie Bell) and Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) in a stunning desert shot, then Tintin and Barnaby (Joe Starr) encountering one another in a very noirish shot, and finally the twins Thompson and Thompson (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost) with Silk (Toby Jones) in the foreground. »

Owf’s 52 Must See Films of 2011

24 December 2010 11:00 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Usually around this time of the year we list maybe 10 or 20 films that we think are as absolute ‘Must See’s’ for what the next 12 months of cinema has to offer us but as the clock is ticking ever closer to midnight on 2010, we thought we would challenge ourselves a little further this time around. The question I posed to the Owf staff recently was… can Cinema in 2011 produce enough ‘Must See’ films to hit 52, which would ratio out to be just one film per week? That’s all we are hopeful for here… just one film every Friday that justifies us parting with our ever increasingly important cash in these tough economic times.

Did we manage to find 52? Kind of.

There’s certainly 52 films listed here but once we got to around 30, the whole thing became a struggle and we had to fill it out disappointingly with the usual array of over-budgeted summer spectacles, »

Why 2010 has been a vintage year for Essex

21 December 2010 4:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It's brought us the winners of Strictly, X Factor and I'm a Celebrity, but there's been so much more to celebrate in Essex over the last year

Oh my gosh! Garrulous Stacey Solomon winning I'm a Celebrity . . . Get Me Out of Here!, Basildon-born Kara Tointon triumphing in Strictly Come Dancing and painter and decorator Matt Cardle victorious in The X Factor completes an annus mirabilis – and no, that's not a beauty treatment connected to a vajazzle – for Essex.

Solomon immediately announced she couldn't wait to return to Dagenham and celebrate with a Malibu and pineapple down the pub. And why not? Dagenham itself has had an epic year. First it was immortalised in Nigel Cole's film Made in Dagenham about the 1968 strike for equal pay by women workers at Ford, with theme lyrics by Barking's Billy Bragg. And then came rapper Devlin, turning Dagenham into a British version of Eminem's Detroit. »

Celebrating the work of Edgar Wright

21 December 2010 2:10 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

As Scott Pilgrim arrives on DVD and Blu-ray, we celebrate the work of Edgar Wright, from his TV comedies to movie classics like Shaun Of The Dead...

Edgar Wright is undoubtedly one of Britain’s most exciting directors, and one with barely a duff note on his CV. Here, we pick out the biggest moments of his impressive career thus far...

Asylum (1996)

As in “Taking over the...”, Asylum was a comedy series which ran on the Paramount Comedy Channel in 1996, when the UK was still acclimatising to multi-channel television and commissioning original comedy and drama content rather than buying in re-runs.

Although it helped launch the TV career of many well-known comedians and comic actors (and gave Norman Lovett somewhere to go after Red Dwarf) the series’ true contribution to comedy history was to unite its fledgling director – fresh-faced 22-year-old Edgar Wright – with writer/performers Jessica Hynes (nee Stephenson) and Simon Pegg. »

Todd's Top Picks And Disappointing Flicks Of 2010

20 December 2010 6:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

With the year wrapping up the time has come to cast an eye back on the year that was 2010 and try to sum up what has come and gone. As always when doing these things I'm a little bit surprised how things have shaken down in the final lists. A few notes before we get rolling.

First, as should always be kept in mind, this lists are purely subjective and should be treated as such. They're not meant to be an objective statement of quality of lack thereof, merely a reflection of my own tastes and viewing habits.

Second, I haven't seen everything yet. The absence of films like True Grit and Bedevilled means only that I haven't seen them yet. There are a few other prominent ones out there that I haven't seen as well.

Third, as I went through my viewing year it quickly became apparent that 2010 was »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part Two

19 December 2010 2:05 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Beaver

Opens: March 23rd 2011

Cast: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Anton Yelchin, Jennifer Lawrence

Director: Jodie Foster

Summary: A depressed toy company CEO with a failed marriage starts to wear a beaver puppet on his hand as a form of therapy, much to the initial bemusement of his family. He soon begins talking only through the character.

Analysis: This time last year, excitement was quietly brewing for "The Beaver". Gibson's drunken tirade a few years before hand wasn't forgotten, but enough time had passed that this looked to be the year of a potential comeback for the actor.

The thriller remake "Edge of Darkness" and this were his first on screen roles in ten years, 'Beaver' is also his "Maverick" co-star Foster's return to the director's chair fifteen years after her last feature. The script topped the 2008 Black List and scored rave reviews for its blend of sophisticated humor and sad pathos, »

Andy Serkis And Thomas Sangster Star In The Death Of A Superhero

17 December 2010 10:58 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

A fascinating one to look out for here, coming from Ian Fitzgibbon - the director of A Film With Me In It and Perrier's Bounty.

Andy Serkis and Thomas Sangster - for my money one of the finest actors of his generation - star in Death Of A Superhero, a feature adaptation of the novel by Anthony McCarten.

With principal photography now wrapped in Ireland the picture stars Sangster as Donald Delpe, a teenage kid who - like most teenage kids - really wants to get laid. Complicating this somewhat is the fact that Donald is also terminally ill and retreating into a fantasy world as a way of coping. Here's how the picture is described by the Irish Film And Television Network:

'Superhero' is based on Anthony McCarten's novel 'Death of a Superhero' centres around Donald Clarke, a terminally ill teenager who craves sex and adventure, however his »

Chronicles of Narnia topples Harry Potter at the UK box office

17 December 2010 7:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 10th - Sunday 12th December 2010.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader jumps in straight at the top of the UK box office but an opening weekend of just £2.4m (including preview takings of £264k) means it’s far from a spectacular start for the third entry in Walden Media’s fantasy series. In fact, Narnia seems to be suffering badly from the law of diminishing returns with 2005’s The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe opening to the tune of £8.8m and sequel Prince Caspian banking £4.06m, and with this latest instalment faltering despite the added attraction (and increased ticket price) of 3D, you have to wonder if this could be the end of the road for Aslan and company.

Moving on, previous box office champ Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 »

The Notable Films of 2011: Part One

13 December 2010 7:39 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Back for its third year (see the 2010 edition) and bigger than ever, today kicks off the first in a fifteen-part look at the various cinematic releases hitting the U.S. in 2011. Each 'part' contains brief descriptions and editorial opinion/analysis of varying length covering twenty films. Expect the remaining ones to go up between now and the first major releases in mid-January.

Like all cinematic lists set within a timeframe, there's some overlap. Some films here have already opened worldwide but have yet to hit the U.S., some upcoming films you'd expect to be here aren't because they're either still in development or have already announced 2012 release dates, some were on last year's list but got delayed so have been included again (but with all new analysis).

I confined my list to films that have either set 2011 release dates or had begun/completed production, and only films that have »

The best films of 2010

The Observer's film critic reviews an exceptional year for British film-makers and actors – and a rough one for Julia Roberts

Not a bad year all in all, and an exceptional one for Britain with the continuing success of the Harry Potter franchise and a variety of highly individual movies. One thinks of Made in Dagenham, Tamara Drewe, The Disappearance of Alice Creed, The Arbor, Monsters, and two topical comedies, The Infidel and Four Lions. It was thus an inappropriate time for the coalition government to continue the British establishment's century-long policy of foolish, patronising and, at times, vindictive treatment of our native film-makers by abolishing the UK Film Council. However, the decision by Warner Bros to buy and refurbish the Leavesden studios in north London may help delay the descent of British cinema into a cottage industry.

The only discernible international trends were a sceptical interest in religion (eg Lourdes, »
