Based on the classic comic book series by Belgian artist Georges Remi, this Steven Spielberg-directed film combines four tales, including The Crab with the Golden Claws, previously adapted for the screen in 1947. Jamie Bell plays Tintin, a young reporter who sets off with Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis, a.k.a. Gollum in Lord of the Rings) on a treasure hunt for a sunken ship commanded by Haddock’s ancestor. The film is a combination of CGI and stop motion animation, thanks to producer Peter Jackson and his company, Weta Digital. Also in the cast: Daniel Craig, Cary Elwes, Simon Pegg, and Toby Jones.
