From Academy Award winning filmmakers Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson - comes the epic adventures of Tintin.

Having bought a model ship, the Unicorn, for a pound off a market stall Tintin (Jaime Bell) is initially puzzled that the sinister Mr. Sakharine (Daniel Craig) should be so eager to buy it from him, resorting to murder and kidnapping Tintin - accompanied by his marvellous dog Snowy - to join him and his gang as they sail to Morocco on an old cargo ship.

Sakharine has bribed the crew to revolt against the ship's master, drunken Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis), but Tintin, Snowy and Haddock escape, arriving in Morocco at the court of a sheikh, who also has a model of the Unicorn. Haddock tells Tintin that over three hundred years earlier his ancestor Sir Francis Haddock was forced to scuttle the original Unicorn when attacked by a piratical forebear of Sakharine but he managed to save his treasure and provide clues to its location in three separate scrolls, all of which were secreted in models of the Unicorn.

Industry Reviews

'The Adventures of Tintin comes at you in a whoosh, like a volcano full of creative ideas in full eruption... It hits home for the kid in all of us who wants to bust out and run free.' - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

'True to Spielberg, the action sequences don't let up. Tintin's adventures transition seamlessly from ocean liner to biplane to sand dunes to Moroccan streets.' - Rebecca Cusey, WORLD

'A film with as much heart as it has humor, the action and pacing never flag and you will find yourself laughing out loud one moment and grabbing the arm rest the next.' - Neely Swanson, Easy Reader

'With The Adventures of Tintin, Steven Spielberg remembers that even if you make a movie that isn't about that much, at least make it an exciting, awe-inspiring movie about not that much.' - Craig D. Lindsey, INDY Week
