Spielberg will Make First Ever Appearance at Comic-Con!

For the first time in his career, Steven Spielberg will be appearing at Comic-Con.   It will be on July, 22, 2011 as part of the The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn panel.  He will also be receiving the annual Inkpot award.

Most believe this appearance is due to concerns over Tintin.  The big budget CGI motion capture film which is far from a sure thing.  Especially in America where the source material, a Franco-Belgian comic, is not especially well known.  Will it work?  Well, a similar appearance by James Cameron prior to the release of Avatar did.  But Spielberg isn’t as much of a huckster as Cameron.  Hmmm …

This trailer fully sells us on motion capture as the perfect choice for adapting this material.  We really feel like we’ve entered Hergé’s world.

Very effective trailer.  Really makes you want to see more.  And more.  We huge Tintin fans so we were already excited about this.  But now we’re really excited!

This gave us our first look at set pix from the Green Lantern movie.  First up we saw Peter Sarsgaard as GL’s big-headed nemesis Hector Hammond:

And now a shot of Ryan Reynolds in a motion capture suit.  As GL movie mavens already know the Green Lantern suit will not be a literal costume, but a CGI creation.  And this photo gives some suggestion of what the costume might be like.

We think that bit hanging from his waist is the upper part of the suit.  And the dog?  Your guess is as good as ours.   We’re guessing it’s just some set mutt.   And, no, MTV, we don’t think it’s Ch’p:

Sorry, Ch’p, but we think your chance at big screen glamor is a way off.  Quite a way.

Peter Jackson’s Tintin Movie Likely to be “The Seven Crystal Balls”

CHUD is reporting that Peter Jackson is leaning toward The Seven Crystal Balls as the basis for his Tintin movie.  This will be done as a sequel to The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn which Steven Spielberg is directing.

Tintin is a Beligian comic which ran from 1929-1976.  It was the creation of cartoonist Georges Remi under the pen name Hergé, a play on his initials.   The Tintin stories mix comedy and adventure in an infectious combination which has thrilled fans all over the world for decades.  Hergé’s art style is a mix of cartoonish characters against more realistic backgrounds.  He is especially noted for his drawings of airplanes and other vehicles which are rendered with great accuracy.


Tintin has been brought to the screen before in both animated and live action films.  The last live action film was Tintin et les oranges bleues (Tintin and the Blue Oranges), a French production based on an original script, released in 1964.  His last animated film was Tintin et le lac aux requins (Tintin and the Lake of Sharks), also from an original script.  It was released in 1972.  Tintin also had a several animated television series.  The last one aired from 1991-92.

The Spielberg/Jackson Tintin movies will be shot utilizing CGI motion capture technology.
