Two giants of cinema, Academy Award winning directors Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, team up to bring Hergé's comic book characters to life. Thrilling and wildly funny, the Tintin stories chronicle the escapades of a junior reporter who has a nose for a good story and a talent for attracting trouble, which more often than not imperils his life! Spielberg and Jackson have selected three stories from the Tintin book series to develop into theatrical feature films, which they intend to direct back to back, employing state of the art performance capture technology by Weta Digital, the team behind Avatar, Lord Of The Rings and King Kong.
Tintin (Jamie Bell) finds a clue to an ancient treasure that belonged to Captain Haddock's (Andy Serkis aka Gollum aka King Kong) ancestor Sir Francis Haddock. They set out to find it with a small team: protection from a jail escapee and Detective Thompson and Thomson (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost), as well as scientific advice from Professor Calculus.
