From Oscar® winning director Steven Spielberg and Oscar® winning producer Peter Jackson, two of today's most visionary storytellers, comes a 3D motion picture event: an epic, globe-hopping quest that spans hidden mysteries, menacing criminals and ancient secrets. Bringing to dazzling life the classic escapades that have enthralled generation after generation with their one-of-a-kind mix of action, humour and scintillating tale spinning in THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN.
Based on the internationally beloved and irrepressible characters created by Herge, the story follows the unquenchably curious young reporter Tintin (Jamie Bell) and his fiercely loyal dog Snowy as they discover a model ship carrying an explosive secret. Drawn into a centuries-old mystery, Tintin finds himself in the sightlines of Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine (Daniel Craig), a diabolical villain who believes Tintin has stolen a priceless treasure tied to dastardly pirate named Red Rackham. But with the help of his dog Snowy, the salty, cantankerous Captain Haddock (Andy Serkis) and the bumbling detectives Thompson & Thomson (Simon Pegg and Nick Frost), Tintin will travel half the world, outwitting and outrunning his enemies in a breathless chase to find the final resting place of The Unicorn, a shipwreck that may hold the key to vast fortune, and an ancient curse.
From the high seas to the sands of North African deserts, every new twist and turn sweeps Tintin and his friends to escalating levels of thrills and peril, proving that when you dare to risk everything, there's no limit to what you can do.
The film is directed by Academy Award® winner Steven Spielberg from a screenplay by Steven Moffat and Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish based on "The Adventures of Tintin" by Herge. Produced by Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy, with Ken Kamins, Herge Estate's Nick Rodwell and Stephane Sperry as executive producers.
The film's acclaimed international ensemble is led by Jamie Bell (BILLY ELLIOT) as Tintin, Andy Serkis (THE LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy) as Captain Haddock, Daniel Craig (QUANTUM OF SOLACE) as Sakharine, Nick Frost (SHAUN OF THE DEAD) and Simon Pegg (STAR TREK) as Thomson & Thompson, Toby Jones (THE HARRY POTTER films) as Silk, Mackenzie Crook (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Trilogy) and Daniel Mays (THE BANK JOB) as Tom and Allan, and Gad Elmaleh (THE VALET) as Ben Salaad.
THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN will be released worldwide in RealD 3D and IMAX 3D.
