This is going to be an awesome movie. Especially since it’s a Spielberg/Jackson collaboration.. Using the same method that Robert Zemeckis birthed and destroyed, motion capture CGI, we trust that the brains of Spielberg and Jackson will revive this very cool art form.

With the previous success of Super 8, which Spielberg produced, we can be assured that this film will be as cool as you think it will be, even more so!

Here’s the Synopsis for the film:

The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn” is the first in the series of 3D motion capture films based on the iconic character created by Georges Remi, better known to the world by his pen name “Herge”.

The film stars Jamie Bell as Tintin, the intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure, and Daniel Craig as the nefarious Red Rackham. Bell and Craig are joined by an international cast that includes Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook.

The second feature in the series is scheduled to be directed by Peter Jackson, with a potential for a third film as well. Spielberg and Jackson will bring Herge’s stories to life employing state-of-the-art performance capture technology developed by Jackson’s Weta Digital.

The film comes out on December 23rd 2011.

Some more movies to lookout for this year!

Another Movie roundup for 2011

Jake Gyllenhaal is what seems to be a very exciting movie. SOURCE CODE. I must admit, I know very little about this movie, according to IMDB I have this An action thriller centered on a soldier who wakes up in the body of an unknown man and discovers he’s part of a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.” Sounds riveting


Prequel to Planet of the Apes, the sort of origin story of how it all began can be seen in the upcoming Rise of the Apes, Starring man of the moment James Franco. I was never a fan Franco, but he is doing some seriously great work. Andy Serkis dons the mokap once again to play “caesar”.


X-Men First Class, yet another prequel this year, starring James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. Adding some more insight to the Xmen Movie Franchise. I hope it doesn’t turn out to be a mess like Wolvering Origins movie.


Who really seems to be the Lady of the moment. Former high school muscical brat Vanessa Hudgens is the beauty in the Beauty and Beast rehashing in the form of BEASTLY, in which an arrogant pretty boy gets what he deserves by being turned into a freak, by a vengeful goth.


Childhood favourites The Smurfs come to in 3D this year too. Hank Azaria playing the evil wizard Gargamel. Movie also features the voice talents of Neil Patrick Harris and George Lopez.


Tom Cruise, Paula Patton and Simon Pegg, star in Mission Impossible 4: Ghost Recon. Coming out the end of the year. I seriously enjoyed this fanchise.  As far as sequels go, my expectations are somewhat higher than average.


Johnny Depp, Alfred Molina, isla Fisher and Timothy Olyphant also doing their bit for Animation in pirates director Gore Verbinski’s  Rango, the westerned themed story of a  Chameleon who aspires to be a hero.


In closing, a movie I will probably never watch is Drive Angry 3D. Nicholas Cage makes me sad.  Story is about a man who escapes from hell to wreak vengeance upon the killers and kidnappers of his daughter and grand daughter respectively.


Others to look forward to are Matt Damon in Contagion, Harry potter and Green Lantern
